Many Sky Blue Trust members will have been at The Valley last October when both Coventry City and Charlton fans joined forces to march together in a demonstration of unity in their fight for better ownership.
The March attracted National media coverage and helped to highlight the sad demise of both clubs.
On Friday there will be another march, this time on our home turf, organised by the "Fighting the Jimmy Hill Way" group which we believe many of our members will want to support.
Supporters of both clubs are invited to assemble at the Cherry Tree Club, CV6 6FT, on the junction of Lythalls Lane and Bedlam Lane. A march will then commence at 2pm along Bedlam Lane, onto the footpath by Phoenix Way and then into the Ricoh complex, finishing by Jimmy Hill’s Statue on the North side of the Stadium. Fans are invited to bring banners, musical instruments and other devices that add to the atmosphere, though people should be aware that Arena Security may restrict items being taken into the ground.
Further instructions on continuing the protest during the match will be issued on the March. As always, we request that any protest activities are lawful and responsible. Please pay particular heed to the safety of players and match officials, other employees at the ground and fellow supporters.
Organisers from CARD and the Jimmy Hill Way intend that this event should be fun, demonstrating a solidarity of purpose and re-emphasising the serious anxieties that supporters share about the future of both Coventry City and Charlton Athletic.
Please come and join us.
