John Sillett, George Curtis and nearly the whole squad of Coventry City players that won the FA Cup 3-2 against Tottenham Hotspur in 1987, gathered together for a very special night of celebrations in the Marquee at Nailcote Hall hotel.

After a relaxing afternoon of golf at Nailcote the players and their wives and partners were welcomed by 200 of their friends abnd guests, one by one to a rapturous applause, with the loudest reserved for John Sillett and George Curtis carrying the F.A. Cup together

The ‘Sky Blues’ anthem was sung twice to make sure it really got the party going!! A game of Red or Yellow card was the first fundraising event of the night and was controlled by Nailcote’s owner and referee with the help from fanatical City fan Tony ‘Banger’ Walsh. The winner Gary Thomson won a special 25th Anniversary football signed by the team

After the final was shown Vice Chairman, John Clarke stepped forward – it was just the right moment and confirmed the Life Presidency of the football club to George Curtis with his wife Inga looking on with pride. It was a very special moment for everyone present

The evening concluded with an auction by Willie Thorne and everyone opening their raffle boxes which all were filled with Sky Blue and White chocolate footballs and a few star winners amongst them.

The guests all enjoyed dancing the night away to the fabulous sounds of Rang-a-Tang.

The City of Coventry and all Sky Blues fans will never forget 1987 or anyone who made it happen.
