Former City wing-half Geoff Strong passes away aged 75

Coventry City Football Club are saddened to report the passing of former Sky Blue Geoff Strong, aged 75.

Strong made 33 appearances for City between 1970 and 1972, the majority of those appearances coming in his first season with City that saw them undertake their 1970-71 European campaign.

The wing-half also enjoyed lengthy spells at both Arsenal and Liverpool before his arrival at Coventry City in August 1970.

Geoff was considered the consummate professional at the three clubs he represented and Coventry City Football Club would like to pass on its condolences and sincerest wishes to his family and close friends.
