EVENT: New Sky Blues Book Signing This Saturday

Jim Brown will be joined by some famous guests.

9 November 2017

Club Historian Jim Brown will be signing copies of his new book ‘Play Up Sky Blues – Champions 1967: Coventry City’s Rise to the Top’.

The signing will take place this Saturday (November 11th) ahead of the SkyBet League Two clash with Mansfield Town at the Ricoh Arena.

Jim will be joined by Mick Kearns, Ronnie Farmer and Dietmar Bruck from that legendary team in the Genting Casino from 1:30pm before the game and after the game until 6pm.

The book tells the story of when Jimmy Hill’s side reached the First Division for the first time in the club’s history, including the 25-game unbeaten run and the ‘Midlands Match of the Century’ versus Wolves which would decide the destination of the title – in the Sky Blues favour.

The remarkable story of the 1967 season was a rollercoaster ride, with plenty of stories coming out from that campaign.

There isn’t many better people to be telling the story than Brown, who has been a Coventry City supporter since 1962 and has lived and breathed the Sky Blues since then.

Play Up Sky Blues, will be Jims eighth book he has written about the history of Coventry, since he became Club Historian over 20 years ago now.

Play Up Sky Blues is available to purchase at all good bookshops and online, with the hardback book priced at £16.99.

The book is a must have for all Coventry supporters, so make sure you pick up your copy and don’t miss the opportunity to meet some legendary Sky Blues players, in the form of Kearns, Farmer and Bruck.
