Coventry City are returning to the Ricoh Arena

First published in Sport

TOWN'S League One rivlas Coventry will return to the Ricoh Arena after more than a year playing in Northampton, the club have confirmed.

The Sky Blues are expected to make their home comeback next month, when they are due to host Gillingham in Sky Bet League One .

Coventry had moved to Sixfields in 2013 after a dispute with stadium owners ACL, when the club started to withhold rent payments they believed to be unreasonable in 2012.

But they have struck a deal after talks between lawyers acting for club owners Sisu and ACL, and the move has now been rubber-stamped by the Football League.

Absolutely, crammed in by the thousands, fantastic result, and as me and the missus were staying in the hotel, a whole evening of booze and gambling downstairs. Great memories of that day.
