Marcus Hall will be the guest of the Coventry City Former Players Association for the Reading game at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

Marcus, a former Stoke Park pupil, joined the Sky Blues in 1992 as an apprentice and quickly rose to the ranks of first team professional debuting in the Premier league against Spurs in December 1994 and subsequently became an England Under 21 and ‘B’ International.

Ever popular in various defensive roles Marcus appeared over 150 times in his first period with the Sky Blues before leaving in 2002 and after very short spells with Nottingham Forest and Southampton settled at Stoke City where he clocked up over 80 appearances for the Potteries outfit.

Marcus returned to Coventry in 2005 and doubled his overall appearances total at CCFC to 307 first team games (5 goals).

Leaving City for a second time in 2010 after Chris Coleman decided not to offer him a new deal,  Marcus spent last season with Northampton Town and most recently, turned out in Sky Blue colours once more in the Serco Midland Masters 6 a side tournament. as well as appearing for Coventry Colliery with another former City youngster Andy Lovelock.

Look out for Marcus around and about the stadium, on the pitch at half-time, contributing match analysis on the local radio (CWR*) and in the G-Casino after the game next Saturday.
