Coventry City fans plan to hold a major demonstration outside the city's Council House to call for a return to the Ricoh Arena on May 10th.

The 'Vote them Out' urges fans to use the forthcoming elections to vote for candidates who say they will help bring the club home.

The Sky Blues moved to Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium at the start of the season for at least three years.

It follows a long-running rent row with the Ricoh Arena, which saw the club fall into administration.

Coventry fans protest at the Emirates stadium

Coventry City fans expressed anger last night with a mid-match protest.

They held up signs saying "Why?" and "When?" to question why the club left the Ricoh Arena to play at Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium and when the Sky Blues will return to Coventry.

The protests took place in the 35th and 61st minutes of the FA Cup game against Arsenal. The 35th minute was chosen because it represents the distance in miles between Coventry and Sixfields, where the Sky Blues currently play their home matches.

The second protest was staged after half-time, 61 minutes in, reflecting Jimmy Hill's takeover of the club in 1961, which marked a major period of transformation for the club.

Coventry lost 4-0 to Arsenal.

Coventry City striker Leon Clarke has handed in a formal transfer request, the club has confirmed.

Clarke, who has scored 18 goals this season, has 18 months left on his current deal with the club.

Development director Steve Waggott said: “It’s deeply disappointing when a player expresses a desire to leave the club in this way – especially when he has become such a firm favourite with supporters because of performances over the past 12 months...

"We are in a position where we will only let him leave if the deal is right for Coventry City Football Club.

“That means securing the kind of deal that will allow [manager] Steven Pressley to strengthen his squad should Leon go.”
