The Association would like to remind all Sky Blues fans that F.A.Cup winning hero (and CCFPA member) Greg Downs will be the Association’s ‘special guest’ for the Sky Blues when they take on Notts County at the Ricoh this coming Saturday 15th November 2014.
As with all our special guests, Greg will be touring the lounges at the Ricoh before the game and has confirmed that after the Sky Blues game he will be appearing ‘for one night only’ in the G-Casino on the stage of Lady G’s Show bar where Sky Blue fans can see him ‘lightly grilled’ in a Q&A conducted by CCFPA Vice Chairman Billy Bell.
However, in deference to the 5pm kick-off for England’s Group E European Championship Qualiying international against Slovenia which many City supporters will want to see on the big screens at the Casino after the County game, both Greg and Billy have kindly agreed to postpone their appearance on stage until half-time in the England game(approx 5.45pm) so that Sky Blue fans are able to see and enjoy both and will not miss a thing!! All are welcome!
Of course, if you aren’t able to get to the Arena, why not listen to Greg on BBC C&W Radio during the game since he will be an important part of the match commentary team during the Sky Blues attempt to keep up the much improved form they showed in reaching the semi-finals of the JPT trophy last Wednesday evening when they defeated Plymouth Argyle 2-0 at the Ricoh.
Greg comes back to Coventry fairly infrequently so make the most of his visit – he has always been good value both in his playing days and an entertaining interviewee! No doubt he will renew acquaintances with other members of the 1987 F.A.Cup squad as the likes of Dave Bennett, Micky Gynn, David Phillips, Paul Culpin (and of course Oggy) are also expected to be around.
