Clarke wants talks to start again

Deputy Chairman John Clarke, who announced his resignation from the board of Coventry City Football Club on Monday has said that he hopes that his departure will signal the recommencing of talks between the Sky Blues and stadium owners Arena Coventry Limited.

"I don't want to point the finger of blame at anybody," said Clarke to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire.  "They've got to keep talking.

"I've spent two years back on the board, which at times has been very challenging. But the thing that counts for most is the football club and especially the fans. They're the lifeblood.

"And I've had some marvellous messages of support, from John Sillett, and even Mark Robins.

"I just hope my departure signals the moment for them to get round the table again."
