Ouch. Sounds like Coventry will be having to shut up or sod off quite soon. Birmingham isn't too far I hear. Northampton not too far away either, but either way this sounds strained, and when things get strained the tenants move on. If I were CCFC, I would grumble, take the Hugh ground,  and then shut up pdq.

The Hugh Ground - that's in Wolverhampton, isn't it?

That’s exactly what they’ll do possibly along with a stab at some compo. Renting from us suits their model.

An interesting and carefully worded statement. 7s tournaments do not appear to have caused that much pitch damage elsewhere in the UK in the past. Will be interesting to see what, if any, response the football club make - if no response that would be quite telling.
