For those people who do not visit the Coventry Rugby website a sad note to report, Mr Jim Ashby and fantastically loyal supporter and benefactor to the club sadly passed away recently. I am sure that we ALL send our heart felt condolences to his wife Gloria and the family at this very difficult time. Funeral arrangements are as follows: 10.00am Meriden Church.... 11.00am Canley Crematorium .... 11.45 BPA .... RIP "GENTELMAN JIM"

Agreed, a sad loss.
You’ve posted the funeral details, except for one point. Which day is it?

Could one of the outside bars or a hospitality rooms be named after gentleman Jim

I was told Jim was one of the main people responsible for helping keep the club afloat, and of his genuine affection for the club. Very sad news indeed, and such a shame he will not be here to watch his beloved club in the Championship once again

I was so sad to hear the news of Jim's passing.
A lovely, unassuming man, who never sought the accolades, but who quietly did so much in so many ways for Coventry Rugby.
I am even more saddened that at the time of his funeral, I will not be local & will therefore miss it.
