A Divine intervention?

The Very Rev John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry, has played a big part in bringing the Sky Blues back at home after a season at Northampton Town’s Sixfields.

The Dean walk in the long battle between the football club, the Ricoh Arena and Coventry City Council in 2014, setting the ball on a trip to London to meet with the football club’s owner, Sisu boss Joy Seppala.

That led to a secret meeting in a restaurant involving the key actors, and the Very Rev Witcombe brought along a professional mediator with an international reputation for the resolution of conflicts, the Bill Marsh.
