PRESS WATCH: "The fans deserve to have a legends day, It's a great honour for the former players to come back." Coventry City's Dave Bennett

20 March 2015

The 1987 cup winner told the Coventry Observer that Legends Day is a massive day for the club and has urged fans to come and see club icons at the Ricoh Arena tomorrow...

Coventry City legend Dave Bennett told the Coventry Observer that it is a great honour for former players to come back as part of Legends Day.

The club's annual Legends Day takes place tomorrow against Doncaster Rovers, where legends of City history return to the club in the event organised by the CCPFA.

Bennett, part of the 1987 FA Cup winning side, is one of the members of the CCPFA who has played a massive role in the organisation of the event and the likes of George Hudson, Ronnie Farmer, Willie Carr and Ian Wallace are just four of the legends who will be in attendance.

The FA Cup winning hero is pleased that the former players have the opportunity to say thank you to the supporters who backed them over the years and hailed tomorrow's occassion as a "massive day for the club."

"The fans deserve to have a legends day," Bennett said. "It's a great honour for the former players to come back.

"These great players have been cheered on by the fans down the years and it's great for them to come back and say 'thank you'.

"It's a massive day for everyone involved at the club.

"A lot of hard work goes into organising the event and getting in touch with all the former players.

"It's a day when us former players get to say thank you to the fans for their support over the years and we achieved something that perhaps this club might not be able to achieve again in 1987, so it's nice for the fans to see the '87' players again and show their appreciation."
