MY CCFC XI: Steve Norris chooses his best Sky Blues team

14 May 2020

Steve Norris is the next Coventry City fan to choose his best Sky Blues side, and share his story of supporting the team.

Steve live in Launceston, Tasmania, the island state of Australia. He is a retired school principal.

Steve said: “I first saw City play in 1964 when as a birthday treat. I went with my dad to watch the Sky Blues play a 2-2 draw against Hull City at Highfield Road. Over 20,000 were there that day.

“I’ve been a supporter ever since and am most proud of being at Highfield Road on that glorious day in 1967  ( as a 10 year old) when we all crammed in to see the Sky Blues beat Wolves 3-1 to win the 2nd Division Championship.

“In many ways this season is similar to that season with both City teams going unbeaten in the league since the start of the new year.”

Steve is pictured with his wife Kate, celebrating his 63rd birthday at Bondi Beach in Sydney.

Now Steve talks us through the best side that he has seen in action for Coventry City...

Goalkeeper - Bill Glazier

Dependable, unflappable, athletic and great reactions.

Defender - Fankaty Dabo

An outstandingly gifted young talent who works incredibly hard and has a great future.

Defender - Trevor Peake

A thoughtful, determined and tough central defender.

Defender - Mick Coop

Much more than the Coop Scoop, a great servant of the club, utterly dependable.

Defender - Dave Clements

Incredibly versatile playing anywhere on the left flank. Honest business-like and hardworking.

Midfield - Mustapha Hadji

Great flair and vision backed up by silky creative skills.

Midfield - David Speedie

Tough and influential in directing play. Very assertive and difficult to mark.

Midfield - Willie Carr

Another great servant of the Sky Blues, a tenacious and dynamic ball of energy. Responsible for setting up City’s most famous goal.

Wing - Tommy Hutchinson

A joy to watch every time he had the ball at his feet, creating so many scoring chances.

Striker - Cyrille Regis

Legend! Such a strong striker but also an unselfish player who made many chances for those around him.

Wing - Peter Ndlovu

Probably the most exciting forward we have seen in a Sky Blue shirt.

Manager - Jimmy Hill

Few others come close, though a respectful nod to the excellent work of Mark Robins.
