Coventry City pay tribute to two former players Ken Satchwell and Ray Pointer who sadly passed away this week...

Coventry City FC are saddened to hear of the death of two former players, Ken Satchwell and Ray Pointer, at the ages of 76 and 79 respectively. 

Satchwell was a long-standing member of the Coventry City Former Players Association and a regular at the Ricoh Arena on a match-day.  



He was one of only two Sky Blues players in the last 45 years to notch four times in a single game, with the goals coming in a 5-3 home win over Wrexham on December 25th, 1959 - the last time City played a league game on Christmas Day. 

Ray Pointer had a shorter stint at the Sky Blues, making 26 appearances and scoring 13 goals between 1965-66. He went on to earn 3 England caps – scoring twice for his country. 



Pointer was better known for the time he spent at Burnley FC, where he made a total of 270 appearances and scored 132 goals for the Clarets. 

All of us at Coventry City Football Club extend our sympathies to Ken and Ray’s families at this very sad time.
