We are delighted to report that the Coventry City FC Supporters team have made it through to the final of the IFA Midlands Cup.
The team which is sponsored by the Sky Blue Trust and made up of die hard Sky Blue fans will take on West Bromwich Albion FC supporters in the final which takes place in Eccleshall,Staffordshire on Friday May 9th with a 7pm kick off.
The Sky Blue Trust would like as many of our members as possible to get behind the team in this prestigious match.
We will therefore be running a coach to the game. This will depart Coventry Sports Centre,Fairfax Street at 3.30pm.
The cost of the coach will be £10 for adults, £5 for children and seniors.
It would be fantastic to have a good turn out for the lads to spur them onto victory in what will be a very difficult game.
The Sky Blue Trust has organised coach trips to the majority of Sky Blue away matches this season. For many fans who have decided not to travel to Northampton fixtures, these games on the road have been their only opportunity to see their team in action.
We know that for both youngsters and our more senior supporters travelling to away games, let alone matches being played at Sixfields, is both costly and awkward.
For the away match at Peterborough on April 12th the Sky Blue Trust arranged free travel for both Under 16s and Seniors as well as paying for the kids match tickets.
Around 15 children and their accompanying parents signed up for the trip as well as 5 senior members, Many were watching their first match of the season.
Despite the result, a great day out was had by all. We even had a BBC camera crew onboard the coach to record the day for BBC Late Kick Off, which added to the fun. Unfortunately, the programme is no longer available on BBC iPlayer.
The day was a huge success and one that the Trust will look to repeat next season.Write comment (2 Comments)
