You can't in! come.

GARY Hoffman and Joe Elliott paid at the gates and stood among the City fans after being told they were persona non grata in the board room at Nuneaton Town.

The life-long supporters are regulars at away games and have long served as ambassadors for the club in many a board room up and down the country.

But Elliott, who was last month suspended as Life President for colluding with Hoffman in a bid to find fresh investors to takeover the club, swapped his trademark suit for an anorak and stood in the stands behind the goal at Liberty Way with wife Grace at his side.

Hoffman, who is still an associate director at Coventry, was also told by City's hierarchy that he was unwelcome in the board room, and he and his ten-year-old son Nathan also joined the Sky Blue faithful who were in full voice behind Andy Thorn's side who drew 2-2 in their opening pre-season friendly.

City chief executive Paul Clouting and Sisu's representative on the board Onye Igwe were there to officially represent the club.
