Coventry City remembers

Pics of the Sky Blues observing a minute's silence for Remembrance Day

The Sky Blues paid tribute to the fallen with their Armed Forces Appreciation Day on Saturday.

The club staged a range of activities alongside servicemen and women from The Royal Logistics Corp from 17 Port and Maritime Regiment, soldiers from the RAF, the Royal Corp of Signals and the Irish Guards, Neeka Caplan, a Senior RAF Aircraftsman from RAF Marham, Norfolk as well as Army Cadets, Air Cadets and Naval Cadets.

The club’s guests were paraded around the pitch prior to kick-off, formed a guard of honour and observed a minute’s silence.

There were also cadets on hand with collection buckets raising money for the Poppy Appeal and taking part in a shirt shake before kick-off while each Sky Blues player had a Poppy emblazoned on his match shirt. These shirts have been signed by each player and will be available to purchase very soon, with all proceeds going to The Royal British Legion.

Coventry City would like to thank all of the armed forces members who came and supported the cause and to all the fans for the immaculately observed minute’s silence and for all the donations to those collecting for the Poppy Appeal on the day.
