It is Jimmy Hill Day tomorrow at Coventry. The Sky Blues have moved their annual December commemoration of their former manager and chairman to coincide with Fulham’s visit to the Coventry Building Society Arena as they raise money for the Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund, which supports a number of activities for disadvantaged children in Coventry and Warwickshire.

Hill arguably personally powered ‘the Sky Blue revolution’ of the 1960s and 1970s and, as Fulham Supporters’ Trust chairman Tom Greatrex writes in this perceptive piece, he was critical to preserving Fulham’s long-term future as well as being an outstanding player for the club. His enthusiasm for the game was ever-lasting and the Trust, in conjunction with their counterparts at the Sky Blues Trust, are encouraging fans to gather by Hill’s statue opposite the away end from noon tomorrow to celebrate his unique contribution to the game we love.

If you are not heading to Coventry tomorrow, you can donate to the Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund, which is supported by Jimmy’s family and whose current board includes former Fulham defender Terry Angus, here.
