CCLSC - Socials and Announcements


Coventry City?s legendary ex-captain Brian Kilcline is among a group of veteran footballers taking part in the PFA South Africa Challenge 2009 in aid of Children Today. This is your chance to join this football hero and go head to head in a series of amazing challenges to take home the cup and be crowned the winners of the PFA South Africa Challenge 2009. Also taking part with this formidable ex-player is Neville Southall (ex-Everton), Bob Boulder (ex-Liverpool), Simon Garner (ex-Blackburn Rovers), Peter Nicholson (ex-Bolton Wanderers) and David Olfield (ex-Manchester City). Killer 

The eight day event will take place on the 5th ? 14th June 2009. The teams will join in activities such as cycling through Golden Gate National Park and trekking and climbing in the Drakensburg Mountains of South Africa.  You will have the chance to improve facilities at a local school at Spionkop where a football match will be held involving members of the local community. Finally you will be transported to the beautiful sandy shores of the Indian Ocean for some relaxation which sharks will form the backdrop for a unique dining experience.  

To take part in this once in a life time journey all you have to do is raise ?2,750 plus a registration fee of ?275. The monies raised from this challenge will benefit Children Today, a charity that provides disabled children and young people with grants to purchase vitally important, specialised equipment to aid their daily living, improve independence and achieve their full potential.  

Brian has put his club rivalries aside (until the charity challenge begins) to take part in this highly exhilarating, challenging and enjoyable experience. If you would like to have the chance to talk and play football with a sporting hero in this unique venture please contact Ceri at Children Today on 01244 335622, email or visit our website for further details at




For everybody who attended this years event, other than the change of the room it was held in, nobody would of noticed much change . But to say putting on this event was the most troublesome i've ever had to do is an understatement. Even to the point on Wednesday when it would have been easier to cancel the event. We have enjoyed for the last 5/6 years a deal unrivalled in the hospitality side of the club, getting what we do for ?55. But there have been changes in the club as we all know and with those changes came changes in the hospitality packages. It came to a point where I would not of been able to give the paying punter what was advertised on the package so to say.

But with the help of Raj Athwal, Joe Elliott, Jo Lumani and others it all came together literally on the day, and I mean on the day. Also having to contend with the lack of numbers attending the event did not help. Gone are the days of free this and free that. It is very hard to arrange any social event that costs the member nothing. Having said that I will be working closely on a day out in Coventry,working closely with the CCFC to have a day out for the members/ open day to attract new members in the close season. An event where all CCLSC members can hopefully pull together and make it a huge success.

Now back to the player of the year. Despite not the turn out we hoped for we were determined to make the day a special one for the ones who attended. The event was held in the Singers Bistro where we had a section closed of to ourselves.we all arrived by 12pm and enjoyed a beer or two before Joe Elliot and Ray Ranson came in to meet us. It was the first time we had met the new chairman and after speeches from Ray Ranson and our very own John Strange we sat down to enjoy the meal. Last year we had a set 2 course meal, this year it was only a one course but the choice of courses was far more varied. Most people enjoying a 10 oz steak. Between the meal we had a chat with former players, kirk Stevens, Gary Thompson and Dave Bennett. Former secretary of CCLSC and now vice chairman of CCFC Gary Hoffman came in to see us and have a chat, cheers Gary.

After a game of two half's as the saying goes we all met up again for the presentation and raffle. By this time 6/7 others joined the ranks to see the presentation. Our favourite person of all time also came in to see us, the one and only Jenny Poole, looking as good as ever. The CCLSC player of the year arrived about 6pm, carrying trophies from, not only being man of the match but winning other supporters clubs player of the year aswell. Simon Fahy did an excellent job with his speech and presenting the trophy to Jay Tabb. As for The trophy itself was absolutely fantastic,go to the photo's section on the website and you will surely all agree. And a massive thank you has to go to Barry Chattaway for getting the trophy to us on time after only having a few days notice. Jay gave his speech and thanks to all CCLSC voters who voted for him.

The results of the player of the year were as follows. 1st Jay Tabb on 406 votes 2nd Stephen Hughes on 325 votes 3rd Elliot Ward 249 votes. I then got him to draw the raffle, which was free to all who attended,the names went in the hat so we were always going to get 5 different winners. 2 tickets for the Wolves game went to Barry Chattaway. A signed Jon Gaunt book went to Robin Ogleby A signed football went to yours truly (no fix I promise umm) A second signed ball went to Mark Chandler. And donated by Jay Tabb a signed shirt went to Rob Stevens who has an uncanny knack of winning signed shirts at out raffles. Can I thank everyone who helped out on this event,at cclsc you know who you are, at ccfc you know who you are. cheers Ian Spriggs
