MY CCFC XI: Sky Blues fan Pat Raybould picks her ultimate side!

27 March 2020

As part of a new feature, we are getting Coventry City fans to pick their ultimate team from the time that they have been supporting the Sky Blues!

First up is Pat Raybould!

Pat has been supporting the Sky Blues for 62 years, travelling up and down the country in support of her beloved team. For more than a decade now, she has spearheaded the Family Zone too - providing much loved pre-match activities for young supporters ahead of home games - and volunteers with Sky Blues in the Community's Walking Football scheme.

Read more about the Family Zone here.

Pat, pictured above at the 2018 Play Off Final when she brought out the trophy before the game, now tells us her ultimate Sky Blues side...

Goalkeeper -  Bill Glazier (above)

A very underrated keeper, a key part of the team in the 1960s and early 70s.

 

Full backs - Danny Thomas and Stuart Pearce (below, left)

Both England International full backs, played for City in the 1980s.

Central defenders- George Curtis and Trevor Peake (above, right)

George Curtis was the Iron Man

Peake had tremendous ability and a calm presence at the back.

 

Wingers - Tommy Hutchison and Ronnie Rees (below)  

They were both tremendous players who could beat the full backs and then get in fantastic crosses.

Centre Midfield - Gary McAllister and Dennis Wise (below)

Gary McAllister – a sublime footballer who could both set up and score goals.

Dennis Wise – the player you hate to play against, but love to have him in your team!

Forwards - Cyrille Regis (below) and Callum Wilson

Cyrille Regis – I didn’t rate him when he first arrived but what a great player he turned out to be.

Callum Wilson – An Academy Graduate and has now been in the England Squad.
