Meet The Board
Moz Baker: Secretary
Moz has a firm belief that you don’t choose your football club but that it chooses you. Hence as a Coventry kid, there no choice for him. He watched his first Sky Blue match in 1975 and has been hooked ever since. Moz reported on all things CCFC for Community Broadcasting Services for the Blind for over ten years and then as Sports Presenter for Harmony FM. These days you can catch his views as a regular contributor to fanzine “Twist & Shout” and as a frequent user on Twitter (@mozccfc1987)
Moz says, “As a member of the Management team of a National Sports and Leisure Association with 70000 members I recognise how critical is the need for clear communication, membership engagement and slick marketing. I believe in the Sky Blue Trust. I hope I can help make a difference.”
Born in Coventry in 1955, and educated at Caludon Castle, Lionel joined Rolls-Royce Parkside Works in 1972 and completed a 2 year Commercial Apprenticeship there. Currently he works at Richmond Design and Manufacturing. Lionel has supported the Sky Blues since 1964, and has been a season ticket holder for many years. He is a former CCFC shareholder and a member of the Coventry City Supporters Club and Former Players Association. He is the CCFC Historian, having three books published on the club’s history. Lionel is a founder member of the Sky Blue Trust in 2003 and its first Life Member.

Steve Brown: Vice Chair
Roger was born in Coundon and has supported the Sky Blues for over 50 years. Despite living in Greater Manchester, Roger attends many home and away games. He qualified as a solicitor in 1978, specialising in property and planning law and dealt with numerous transactions involving football clubs.
Roger has recently retired after 19 years as a local authority Chief Executive and works as a self-employed photographer and management consultant.
John Fletcher: Chair
John came to Coventry in 1966, from his birthplace Nottingham,to study at Warwick University. He managed to get into the famous promotion game with Wolves, and has been a Sky Blues fan ever since. He taught in Coventry and Nuneaton before retraining as a Systems Analyst. He became a councillor in 1986, and was Leader of Coventry City Council from 1996 until 2000.
He says, “I believe strongly that supporters can and should have the major say in the running of their club. If fans can own 51% of every Bundesliga club, there’s no reason fans can’t do the same here.”
Kev was born and grew up in Wyken and remembers the first game he attended was Coventry v Chelsea. He can't remember what year but David Webb went in goal for Chelsea after Peter Bonetti got injured and Willie Carr scored a pen. His favourite player of all time was Alan Ball (who won the World Cup single handed) and favourite Coventry player of all time is Big Mo. Kev works as a Shift Manager for a third party logistics company.
