An unofficial reunion for Old Wheatleyans most definitely took place at Wembley Stadium today for the 2017 Checkatrade Trophy Final.
A sizeable percentage of the 40,000 Coventry City FC supporters present must have had a connection with Bablake, judging from the social media posts viewed.
We are delighted to share the celebrations, after a 2-1 win over Oxford United reignited the euphoria of 30 years ago, when the club won the FA Cup final and brought such good cheer to the city.
We hope this win will mark the start of a slow journey back to the 'big time' next season... in a city that has been regenerated by its university, the investment of major employers, the promise of more economic prosperity, the arrival of successful sports clubs and a very strong bid to be the UK's City of Culture in 2021.
