City's most successful manager will now have a road renamed in his honour...

Coventry City are delighted to learn that legend Jimmy Hill will have a major road renamed after him in tribute to the former manager’s influence and contribution to the city.


The A444, which runs from the Ricoh Arena to City’s old stomping ground Highfield Road, will now be renamed ‘Jimmy Hill Way’.

Hill took charge of City in 1961 and guided them from the third division to the first, modernising the team’s image and orchestrating what is now known as the ‘Sky Blue Revolution’.

Jimmy is one of the most recognised managers in the club's 133-year history and will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of everyone associated with the club and the city of Coventry.

Coventry City FC Historian, Jim Brown said: "I'm delighted that the city has decided to honour JH by naming the road after him. Although he wasn't a Coventrian the city took him to their heart and this accolade is another legacy to our finest manager."
