Do you have any interesting, happy, or humorous memories of Tommy?
If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
I remember when I was a kid of 10 or 11 going to the Coundon social club with my dad and half brother. Tommy was often there playing darts with Bobby Mcdonald and occasionally Ian Wallace and a couple of others of the team. They were my idols especially Tommy, every time we went in he would ask my dad if it was OK for me to play darts with them (I was pretty good back then) so there was me playing darts with my heroes in my ccfc top with a glass of pop, absolutely incredible. What a true gent he is. Can you imagine any of the over paid, under talented "stars" doing that now? Not in a million years unless they were paid to.
My Dad Tom Ford played with Tommy at Dundonald and tells some wonderful stories of their time together.
Yes without doubt the greatest to play for Coventry City and the world. Hugely underrated by Scotland's inept managers should have been an international regular. Last saw him playing in Michael Gynn's testimonial at Highfield Road where he was easily the best player on the park at I think 47 yrs old playing with some of the so called greats. He was constantly fouled during his career when physical contact was the norm but hardly ever injured despite rubbish like Frank Lampard snr trying to take him out with a foot round his throat and Leicester's Steve Whitworth (God knows how he got an England cap!) being run so ragged he couldn't help but foul him. Without Tommy we would never have stayed in 1st division for as long as we did gave me and the fellow Westenders great joy in the 70's. Thankyou for everything Tommy Hutch

Watched Coventry City for 60 years and he is THE GREATEST playar to have ever played for the Club in my humble opinion.
Still to this day can recall stranding behind the goal at Wembley for that free kick.
