My new book now out: Sky Blue Heroes : The Inside Story of Coventry City's 1987 FA Cup Win

On 16th May 1987 Coventry City won the first major trophy in their 104-year history. It was an extraordinary period for our city and its football club as we united to celebrate a fabulous success. Victories over Bolton, Manchester United, Stoke City, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United took 'George and John's Sky Blue Army' to Wembley, where they overturned the form book to inflict Tottenham's first ever FA Cup final defeat.

For the first time, the cast of '87 are reunited to tell their stories. Sky Blue Heroes: The Inside Story of Coventry City's 1987 FA Cup Win features exclusive interviews that I have carried out with all of the players, management, media, mascots, songwriters, club staff and supporters, documenting a magical time in Coventry City's history. Contemporary media reports appear alongside memories and retrospectives - and I conducted the first interview for 28 years with the 'mystery man' who appeared on the Wembley pitch photograph with the jubilant players. In 1986/87 we all sang together.


Here's the press release from Pitch Publishing with a sample chapter available...and a link to buy...
