Everton FA Cup Tickets Sold Out

Coventry City have sold their allocation of tickets for the FA Cup fifth round game at Everton on 13 February.

Some supporters queued overnight to be sure of their place near the front of the line. The last of the 6,000 tickets, which were on a strictly first come, first served basis to season ticket holders and executive club members, was sold just before 5pm.

Ticket office manager Jamie Roberts said:

"We were told that some people queued from after the Liverpool game on Saturday night.

"We opened at 10.30am and from then on it was a long and constant queue. The staff worked non-stop to keep it all moving and it was obviously a great response from the supporters.

"We thought we would be able to serve the whole queue but there were around 200 people who missed out. Unfortunately with so much interest and only 6,000 tickets there is little we can do about that but we obviously sympathise with those who missed out."

City were still basking in the glory of their win over Liverpool today – and hope to hear more good news later this week.

Noel Whelan, Coventry City FCEngland manager Glenn Hoddle was in the crowd to watch Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Darren Huckerby in action, but must have been impressed by City striker Noel Whelan.

Whelan has been in superb form in recent weeks and could be named in the England squad to be announced on Thursday – providing Hoddle keeps his job after his controversial reincarnation views.

City midfielder George Boateng, who set Whelan up for the second goal, feels the former Leeds man should get his chance.

He said:

"Noel has been playing very well for about three months and I think he and Darren deserve a chance. They are young and are the future.

"We feel we are playing really well now and there is a very good spirit in the club."
