The Coventry City Former Players Association are delighted to announce that Peter Bodak will be our Special Guest for the Sky Blues home fixture against Oldham Athletic on Saturday 19th January 2013.
A rare visitor to the Ricoh, Peter joined the Sky Blues as a schoolboy in 1977. However, his precocious talent and youthful confidence saw him soon break into the first team debuting for the Sky Blues age 19 in 1980. He scored BBC’s ‘Goal of the Season’ for the Sky Blues in an F.A.Cup 4th round 3-1 victory at Maine Road, Manchester in January 1982.
Never dwelling too long at any of his subsequent clubs, he initally attracted interest from Manchester United and signed in summer 1982 but stayed only for the first 5 months of the season before moving across the city to the ‘other light blues’, Manchester City for the rest of the 1982-83 season.
The next two seasons were spent abroad with Seiko (Hong Kong) and Royal Antwerp (Belgium) before returning to the U.K. to play for Crewe Alexandra from 1986-88. Spells then followed with Swansea City (1988), Happy Valley (H.K.) in 1989 before finishing his League career at Fellows Park in 1990. From Walsall Peter then dropped down into non league football with Sutton Coldfield Town and Atherstone Town from 1991.
