Royal Air Force Blue support for the Sky Blues

Members of the Coventry based Royal Air Force Recruiting team and Air Cadets from Nuneaton found themselves well and truly in the public eye when they stepped out onto the pitch at the Ricoh Arena in support of Coventry 's Sky Blues.

The Royal Air Force Careers team (L to R) Cadet Cpl Taras Andrusin,  CPL Vicci Rayner, SGT Seb Rowe, SGT Mike Davies, and Cpl Bob Holness join the Sky Blues during the pre-match line-up.

The Coventry based Royal Air Force Recruiting team sponsored the match-ball for the recent Coventry vs Leeds match at the Ricoh Arena and Air Cadets from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron helped to swell the numbers in the RAF Blue team which formed the flag waving guard of honour as the Sky Blues and Leeds United teams came out onto the pitch.

The Royal Air Force Recruiting Team from the careers office in Coventry were delighted to be involved with the sponsorship of the match. Having previously sponsored the win over Nottingham Forest at the Ricoh Arena in October 2011, a second win over Leeds United just proves that the Sky's the limit when the local representatives of the Royal Air Force team up with the Sky Blues.

For one extremely lucky Air Cadet, Cpl Taras Andrusin, the trip to the Ricoh Arena turned out to be somewhat more than waving the flag in support of Coventry 's Sky Blues. Taras joined the RAF Careers Advisors SGT Seb Rowe, SGT Mike Davies, Cpl Bob Holness and CPL Vicci Rayner for a pre match VIP tour of the Ricoh Arena.

The Deputy Project Officer for the RAF, Cpl Bob Holness said: "This was a tremendous opportunity for the RAF and the Air Cadets to engage with the general public. RAF Recruiters were on hand to answer any questions that the community may have had about careers opportunities or life in the RAF and the Air Cadets who did a brilliant job were able to talk to young people about the exciting activities available to them within the Air Training Corps.

He added "We hope to be able to work with Coventry City in the future. The hospitality shown by the club was fantastic and to top it off they got another win using an RAF sponsored match-ball ."
