Kids for a quid and £10 adults on Legends Day as Coventry City return from Wembley on Saturday

COVENTRY City have introduced ‘kids for a quid’ as part of a range of special ticket offers for Saturday’s home game when playing legends will be paraded on the Ricoh Arena pitch.

The annual Legends Day – featuring lauded Coventry City figures including 1987 FA Cup heroes John Sillett, Dave Bennett and Micky Gynn – coincides with the first home game since today’s young side picked up the club’s first silverware on Sunday in 30 years.

The club said on its website: “Over 43,000 fans travelled to London in support of the team last Sunday, and we want to try and emulate that electric atmosphere at the Ricoh Arena this weekend.

“City fans can welcome back the Trophy winning side, as prices are slashed in celebration of that famous triumph.”

Prices throughout the ground are:

Adults: £10.00

Concessions (Over 60s): £5

U18s” £1

And season ticket holders can ‘bring a friend’ for just a fiver.

A strong contingent of former Sky Blues players from north of the border includes Willie Carr, Ian Wallace and Tommy Hutchison.

They will also be joined by fellow club legends Dietmar Bruck, Bill Glazier, Ronnie Farmer and former goalkeeper Bob Wesson.

Saturday also marks 50 years since Jimmy Hill’s side clinched the old Second Division title.

Last year’s Legends Day was a huge success with almost 40 former stars enjoying a thumping 6-0 victory over Bury, and this year’s event is expected to attract a total of 50 former players.

Once again the legends will be paraded on the pitch at half-time and fans can also catch up with their heroes in the hospitality suites, while a mass sing-song will take place in Lady Gs after the game with CCFPA’s very own Billy Bell.
