It's been 35 years since the greatest moment in Coventry City's history.

This June, the former captain from the FA Cup winning 1987 team, Brian Kilcline is heading back to Coventry at Christ the King Club for a special one-off event. Sky Blue’s legend Kilcline will be talking about his greatest moments in a Coventry City shirt when he returns to the city for an evening with the fans.


Brian Kilcline, the rugged centre half known as 'Killer' – joined the Sky Blues back in June 11th 1984 from Notts County for the fee of just £68,000. A bargain in today’s market! Kilcline went on to make 179 appearances, scoring 28 times over a seven-year period for Sky Blues to earn cult status among supporters.

Compered by Talksport’s Adam Bridge, the 59-year-old, who also played for Newcastle during a distinguished career that ended in 1998, will discuss all things football including, that famous afternoon in Wembley 35 years ago at Christ The King Club, in Westhill Road, Coundon on June 24. He really should have been sent off in the 1987 FA Cup Final, Towards the end of Coventry’s epic 3-2 FA Cup Final win over Spurs, Kilcline flew into Tottenham’s Gary Mabbutt with such ferocity that he had to be taken off with a minute to go of normal time.

Remarkably, he didn’t even get booked. Instead, referee Neil Midgley just asked him, “What the hell was that?”

A little over half an hour of extra time later and Coventry had won their first and only FA Cup title, leaving Kilcline to limp up Wembley’s 39 steps to lift the famous trophy. The 59-year-old is the latest in a string of excellent events put on by Christ the King Club, who have managed to get big names such as Dion Dublin, Robbie Fowler, Barry McGuigan and Paul McGrath a platform to share their stories in Coventry.
