WITH less than two weeks to go before the club's annual Legends' Day the final touches are being put together by the Former Players' Association as they look to make it one of the biggest and best yet.

Up to 50 former players representing well over half a century of Sky Blues history are expected to turn out for next Saturday's match against Swindon Town at the Ricoh Arena in what will be a day to remember for both the players and supporters.

The celebrations begin at noon when players ranging from FA Cup winners Dave Bennett and Micky Gynn, to fan favourites Ernie Hunt and Noel Whelan, will grace the stadium’s lounges during the afternoon.

The players will be welcomed onto the pitch for their annual team photo at half-time and will appear for a rendition of the Sky Blue Song on the stage of Lady G’s in the G-Casino after the game.
