City supporter appointed
Coventry City supporter Chris McCormick has landed the job of Head Of Sales at Coventry City FC.
The 31 year old Nuneaton born supporter, whose first ever game was the 5-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in 1988, has worked in Manchester and London in the music industry.
He told the club website: "I wasn't actually looking for a new job but once I was made aware of the opportunity, and met with chief executive, Paul Clouting and he explained his vision for the club it was really hard to turn down the chance to come home and work for the club I have supported all my life. "It is different to working in the music industry, the requirements and the skill-set are much the same but just applied to a different world.
“My role will involve maximising what we can do for the local business community and understanding how we can give back to the area.
"It is important that the club continues to engage with members of the business community to try and bring everybody together through their football club.
"My dad took me to my first match in 1988 and we beat Sheffield Wednesday 5-0 at Highfield Road.
"However, I have not been able to get to as many matches as I would like over the past few years because of work.
"In a way this will help me as we look to engage with people who have almost become part-time fans, much like myself.
"As everyone knows, times are hard so as well as reaching out to fans and businesses we must also reward those who have remained loyal.
"It is fantastic to be back home with my friends and family and I am really looking forward to tackling this new challenge."
