2016/17: Coventry United / Shepshed Dynamo (Midland Football League Premier Division)

Merry Christmas and welcome to Sphinx Drive. Where better to take in a traditional Boxing Day football match than our beloved home, with our own turf and our own stand and our own dugouts? We've been here a lot recently. Away games have their charm but home is home, isn't it? You've got to love being at home.

2016/17: Westfields (Midland Football League Premier Divison)

With home fixtures piling up and column deadlines piling up right alongside them, today's Westfields programme is without my usual laboured, overzealous take on the previous Coventry Sphinx game match. Every setback is an opportunity, however, so this is a chance to spout off about something else.

2016/17: Sutton Coldfield Town (Birmingham Senior Cup Second Round)

Back-to-back wins shouldn't be taken for granted. Coventry Sphinx's start to December brought us two victories and six vital league points, and the team had to work hard for them every one of them. Twice they dug in and twice they were able to use that as the springboard for their ability to shine.

2016/17: Heanor Town (Midland Football League Premier Division)

When you're used to being at every match, missing one is a frustrating disruption. I've missed plenty of Coventry Sphinx games since I wandered in uninvited one sunny Saturday afternoon, but few recently. Black Country Rangers taught me a lesson too clear to ignore.
