This is the biggest away league win for the club and it speaks volumes for the boys Nick Walshe’s comment following Cov’s impressive win again Old Albanian on Saturday is one that will be echoed by most supporters….

Rosslyn Park and training ground news…

And so to Rosslyn Park on Saturday. Sixth in the league at home to fifth and a win for Cov leapfrogs us above Park and just that little bit closer to Moseley in fourth. So plenty to play for even at this fairly late stage of the season and with both teams likely to be…

Plymouth v Coventry – Brick walls in Brickfields

In the end, Plymouth were just a little too strong and a little too seasoned for a Coventry side that didn’t quite have the quality and experience to see the game out, despite coming back from behind twice and clearly rattling the opposition. It was a game that Coventry could have won, but having to play a quarter…

Ampthill v Coventry: too close to call…?

Saturday. Match day. And if our last away game, against Hull Ionians, was a ‘must win’ game for Cov having lost all four previous attempts, then Ampthill is very much a ‘need to win’ one. With four consecutive wins now to its name, Cov has got a bit of momentum building. Not a lot, but enough…
