Carl Baker visited the store on Friday to get some CCFC merchandise for himself...

Coventry City captain Carl Baker has praised the new CCFC Superstore having visited the store on Friday.

The 30-year old has had a great season for the Sky Blues so far, having made 13 appearances and scoring three goals, including a fantastic strike against Leyton Orient.

Baker enjoyed his visit and said he would definitely be making sure he is a regular visitor to pick up CCFC merchandise.

The captain said: "I was surprised by how big it was. It is nice to see we have our own shop in the City again as it adds to our identity.

"I was able to catch up with some of the fans who were in there. I went in to get some merchandise myself for my children and it was great to speak to some of the fans in there.

"It was a nice surprise for some of the people in there and they seemed really pleased with the new store. My kids really enjoyed it as well with the big screen as they couldn't stop playing FIFA.

"They want to go there everyday now so they keep asking me to take them back. I am sure I will be a regular visitor there."

Conor Thomas, Jordan Willis, Jordan Clarke and Aaron Phillips helped open the store as hundreds of City fans witnessed the grand opening.

Baker continued, saying he believes it is a great location for the store to be in which will help fans.

"I don't play on FIFA much now as the son is better than me. I better start practicing at home now though so when I do get to the store, I will be able to beat a few fans.

"I saw the video and the photos from the grand opening and it looked like it was busy which was great to see. When I spoke to a few of the fans in the shop, they said the location of the shop is important as getting to our former club shop might have been difficult as it was on it's own.

"There are other shops around the store now which means it is much more accessible and means it is easier for the fans to support the club which is what it is all about."
