Picture Special: City's historic day at the Ricoh

Worcester Editorial 11th Nov, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

THOUSANDS of Worcester City fans, young and old, packed into the Ricoh Arena to watch their club’s giant killing of Coventry City on Sunday (November 9).

More than 3,000 people made their way across the Midlands via coach, car and train to watch one of the biggest upsets in recent memory and photographer Rob Bazley was on hand to capture all of the key moments.

Flags, banners and scarves were all waved and held aloft proudly as City dominated the match against a team more than 60 places above them in the league standings.

After the final whistle City’s emotional manager, Carl Heeley, paid tribute to the following faithful, describing them as unbelievable.

Assistant manager Matt Gardiner said the away supporters had turned the match into a home tie.

We’ve chosen a selection of photos from the day which we believe gives a snapshot of one of the biggest days in the history of Worcester City football club.
