Rob Carter very kindly forwarded me the following article relating to a trip made by supporters (95 of them!!!) and run by the Supporters’ Club to watch Coventry play Plymouth. I’m sure it will back a few memories, even if you were there yourself.
Rob reckons (from his haircut) that it might have been ’83 or ’84 but he’s thinks it could have been even earlier. There are some familiar names and faces even now and Rob though Mick Carter, in particular, might be able to add some details.
I doubt whether many of those involved in the trip will read the blog, but if there is anyone, please do add a comment – it’s very easy to do so and it would be great to hear some of the stories that I’m sure are still talked about relating to either the travelling or the game itself. (Great photo, Mick!).
I remember Ricky Catell – I think he took over running the supporters club for a while at a time when I started travelling by coach rather than car. Dianne Pell sits just in front of me at the ground and a couple of others I recognise by name…
Fantastic memories and if anyone else has anything to share, it would be a pleasure to hear from you…
And the supporters club had 300 plus members…breakfast of Bass and raw eggs…and a £5.50 return fare….those were the days
Once again, thanks, Rob.
