The future of Coventry Sphinx Football Club has now been successfully secured as the management committee at Coventry Sphinx Sports & Social Club are in the final throws of signing a new 25 year lease with Rolls Royce for their Head Quarters at Sphinx Drive. The news comes with the immediate start on ground improvements namely the exterior rendering to the club house and the resurfacing the whole car par including the driveway. As part of our comprehensive business plan presented to Rolls Royce work has also started on the installation of a new 9 a side 3G pitch with floodlights which will easily service all the training requirements of the whole football club. That said there will also be availability for other users, contacts details can be found below. There will also be an 18 hole floodlit putting green available for those up and coming golfers wanting to improve their skills while enjoying the excellent hospitality on offer.
Coventry Sphinx Football Club Chairman, Dannie Cahill, Joey Fletcher, Chairman of Coventry Sphinx Sports and Social Club and Neil Buswell, the Social Club Treasurer are the Trustees of the Social Club who have all worked tirelessly in securing its future. Both the football club and social club go hand in hand with both playing their part in securing their long term futures at Sphinx Drive.
Joey Fletcher commented “this now gives us a platform to grow the business to the level of sustainability moving forward and for the benefit of the local community and beyond. Therefore we urge all our neighbours and potential customers to come along and have a look around our facilities which consists of the “Trophy Bar”, “Legends Lounge” and a function room for all manner of parties, conferences and banqueting”
Dannie Cahill commented “together we have now put in place the security of the football club and with us being in existence for 71 years we are proud that the club will still be around in a 100 years’ time. The football club now boasts 26 teams who will all benefit the new facilities. We decided that we will stick to traditional grass pitches where ever possible as we have our own full time Groundsman. Currently all our training requirements are scattered all around the Coventry area but with the new 3G facility we will all be together at our Sphinx Drive headquarters which further underpins our culture of being as one club. I’m also delighted for all our volunteers who put in so much time and effort for the benefit of others.”
