Minute's Applause For Cyrille Regis On Saturday

Last updated : 16 January 2018 By CNS Sport

Coventry City have confirmed that there will be a minute's applause before Saturday's League Two fixture with Swindon Town at the Ricoh Arena.

The applause will be to acknowledge the achievements of former City striker Cyrille Regis, who played his part to the full in helping Coventry City win the FA Cup in 1987 and who sadly passed away on Sunday aged 59.

Like yesterday's U23's game, the players will wear black armbands and there will be a six page tribute in the programme.

There will also be a memory book launched in the Family Zone from 1.30pm to 2.30pm.

The Legends Day, run by the Coventry City Former Players Association, on March 3rd will also be dedicated to Cyrille, who was signed by Bobby Gould and made 238 appearances for City.
