RICOH OWNERS SAY COVENTRY DON'T NEED TO MOVE

Coventry City's future home may still remain in doubt but a glimmer of hope has opened up on the horizon.

The Ricoh Arena owners have backed the Sky Blue supporters' bid to keep the club in the city of Coventry.

The League 1 outfit were locked out of the Ricoh in May by stadium owners Arena Coventry Limited and, in the wake of recent reports regarding the club looking outside of Coventry for their next home, Sky Blues supporters have held a series of demonstrations to express their concern.

Members of the Sky Blue Trust gathered outside a hotel ahead of a meeting between the club's administrator, Paul Appleton, and creditors, which was adjourned for two weeks.

In a letter handed to Mr Appleton, the Trust claim chief executive Tim Fisher has shown complete disrespect and disregard towards supporters by ignoring their wishes to remain in the city.

And an ACL spokesman said after the meeting: “Our doors are open to the club and there is no need whatsoever for them to be playing outside the city of Coventry.

“We are a successful business and want the Sky Blues to be part of our continued success in the years to come.”
