Rioch Relishing FA Youth Cup Draw

Last updated : 10 November 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City Academy Boss Gregor Rioch is looking forward to tomorrow’s FA Youth Cup Third Round draw. 

City won the cup in 1987 and were beaten by West Ham and Arsenal in two finals but have gone out early in recent years. 

Speaking to Sky Blue Player, Rioch, who was in the Millwall squad which beat Sheffield Wednesday in the 1990 final said: "We are really looking forward to the cup as it is one of the highlights of the year. We have not had the best of luck in recent years so it would be nice to see if we can get a good fixture. 

"We hope to get a home tie because I think with all the publicity of this season and some academy lads getting into the first team, it would be nice for the home support to be able to come down and watch the next group of talent coming through." 

If City are drawn at home, their game will be at the Ricoh Arena.
