GALLERY: Celebration of the life of John Sillett

22 March 2022

The Coventry City community and the world of football came together to celebrate the life of John Sillett at Coventry Cathedral on Monday afternoon.

The Club’s legendary manager and life president passed away in November aged 85.

Former Coventry City players, including the 1987 FA Cup winning squad, ex-team-mates and colleagues from John’s long and successful career were at the Cathedral to celebrate his life, alongside members of his family.

Various speakers shared their memories, while there were also a range of video tributes from former players and contemporaries.

Representatives from Coventry City were in attendance, including Chief Executive Dave Boddy and Manager Mark Robins.
