The 'divine intervention' behind shock Sky Blues Ricoh deal

Coventry Editorial 21st Aug, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

SKY BLUES fans had their prayers answered this morning – and it appears divine intervention may have played a part in the club’s shock Ricoh return.

Dean of Coventry, the Very Reverend John Witcombe, has revealed Coventry Cathedral played a role in bringing the rowing sides together.

A deal to take City back to the Ricoh Arena was announced this morning (Thursday).

“We are delighted to have been able to play a part in bringing the different parties in the dispute over the football club together, after these difficult months,” he said.

“Credit must go to all those involved for their commitment to finding a way forward, and we pray for a great year ahead and massive support from across the city for the club as we celebrate the return of the Sky Blues to the Ricoh, and to the city.”
