All of us at the Sky Blue Trust are delighted at todays news that James Maddison has been called up to the England squad for the matches against Spain and Croatia.
Anyone who has watched his development from a young lad at the Sky Blues Academy through to his first team debut just 4 short years ago will have seen for themselves what a dedicated and talented player he was always going to be.
James Maddison is a very special talent as he has demonstrated, albeit far too briefly, for the Sky Blues, then at Norwich City and currently at Leicester City.
We've no doubt that he will now go on to do the same as an England player and we wish him every success.
We'd also like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone at the Academy who has helped play a part in his development, in particular Gregor Rioch and Rich Stevens.
However far James goes in the game, we believe it will be the very top, he is and always will be a Coventry kid.
In his recent interview on Sky Sports Coventry City FC Chairman Tim Fisher stated “We are just focused on running a football club on a day-to-day basis. We are not interested in the legal side of things.”
We would like to point out that the ongoing court case is brought by Otium Entertainment Group Ltd who are the Football Club. The only current officer of Otium Entertainment Group being Tim Fisher.
We therefore welcome Mr Fisher's assurance that Coventry City FC is not interested in the court case and therefore asks him, in his capacity as Chairman of Otium (aka CCFC) to have the football club withdrawn from proceedings with immediate effect, thereby clearing up any confusion in that regard."
The Sky Blue Trust is delighted to announce that our first Open Meeting of the season will feature 2 of our promotion winning heroes, both products of the CCFC Academy.
We're delighted to be joined by Jordan Willis and Lee Burge who will answer your questions about the club, their careers, the season so far and all things football.
It should be another interesting and entertaining evening.
The meeting will take place on Monday September 17th at The Albany Social club, 10 Earlsdon Street,Coventry with a prompt 7.30pm start. Trust members and guests are invited to apply for a place in the audience by registering via the following link:-
