MY CCFC XI: Fan Tom Rapley chooses his best side!

14 July 2020

Coventry City fan Tom Rapley is next to choose his Sky Blues best XI!

Tom is 43 years old and is a lifelong Sky Blues supporter - and he now talks us through his team selection...

Goalkeeper - Steve Ogrizovic 

Such consistency, and considering the keepers that followed, shows what a fantastic Goalkeeper we had for 15 years +

Right Back - Brian Borrows

Technically sound, and great going forward and defending. Not a flashy player but just got on with the job at hand

Left Back - Patrick Van Aanholt

Fantastic going forward. We were lucky to have him for a season in an under-performing team

Centre Back - Brian Kilcline

Fierce competitor, and when he went with the full beard look during 1990, truly terrifying. 

Centre Back - Phil Babb

Pacy, agile and a touch of skill. Babb was great for Bobby Gould during the exciting 92/93 season. 

Right Midfield - David Bennett

MOM for the '87 Cup Final, and such a silky, tricky winger with great delivery. Sold too early

Left Midfield - Peter Ndlovu

One of the very first African players in the Premiership and only 19. Great back story on how he was spotted by John Sillett during the pre season tour of Zimbabwe aged 15, and then we brought him over. He lit up many games in the mid 90's. 

Centre Midfield - Stewart Robson 

Single handedly kept us up during the 91/92 season with his combative displays. He could tackle and pick a pass. Such a shame injury wrecked his career. 

Centre Midfield - Liam Kelly

Classy midfielder who bossed the centre of the park and was the unsung hero in both our L2 and L1 promotions. Definite Championship quality. 

Striker - Cyrille Regis

Unplayable on his day. Pace, power and a great touch

Striker - Darren Huckerby

Could give a defender the runaround on his day, exciting to watch, and should never of been sold.


Subs: Micky Gynn, Matty Godden, David Speedie, Trevor Peake, Richie Partridge
