Coventry City collector regrets Highfield Road move 10 years on

A Coventry City fan whose garden is full of memorabilia from the club's old ground has said the team should never have left - on the 10th anniversary of the final game at the stadium.

The Sky Blues left Highfield Road for the Ricoh Arena after beating Derby County 6-2 in the last match there on 30 April 2005.

Paul Sheehy, from Coventry, has items including signs, a turnstile and a programme seller's stand at his home.

He has also created a cinema in his garage to watch footage he filmed of the ground's demolition.

Mr Sheehy said: "It suddenly dawned on me it was over and I thought 'they don't need a bigger ground, this place just needs a little bit of tarting up. It's perfect.'.

"And I still think I'm right - (they) should never have left."
