WIN a shirt signed by Bobby.

COVENTRY City fans are being given the opportunity to meet one of the most likeable characters in the history of the club - Bobby Gould.

Gould will be signing copies of his autobiography '24 Carat Gould' ahead of the game against Cardiff at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday, October 19.

To celebrate the book T launch, one lucky Coventry Telegraph reader will T receive a free copy of the new book, which retails at pounds 15.99, along with a 2010/11 home shirt signed by the former Sky Blues player and manager.

Gould will be in the CCFC Superstore pre-match, from 5pm until 5.30pm, and post match, from 9.30pm until 10pm.

Born and bred in the city, Gould was top-scorer in the historic 1966/67 promotion season and had a playing career which took him to Arsenal, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham.

He also had no fewer than 16 posts in coaching and management including two colourful spells in charge at Highfield Road, an FA Cup winning stint at Wimbledon and a period in charge of the Welsh national team.

Justin Tose, CCFC head of T retail, said: "We are delighted that Bobby will be joining us on the evening of the Cardiff fixture and we hope as many people as possible will come along to the signing session.

"The autobiography is described as 'revealing and hilarious' and anyone who knows Gould will recognise those traits as being typical of this favourite son of Coventry."

For your chance to win a copy of Bobby Gould's autobiography 24 Carat Gould and a 2010/11 home shirt signed by the City legend simply answer the following question: Which former Coventry City, Celtic and Preston North End goalkeeper is the son of Bobby Gould? Send your answer on a postcard or the back of a sealed envelope to Bobby Gould Competition, Sports Desk, Coventry Telegraph, T Corporation Street, CV1 1FP by noon on Friday.

Usual competition terms and conditions apply.
