Full Contact client Reice Charles-Cook has signed for League One club Coventry City.
20 year old Reice, who made his Football League debut last season for Bury, turned down a new deal at the League Two club and started pre-season on trial at the Sky Blues under the expert eye of legendary keeper coach Steve Ogrizovic. During this period Reice actually played two games for local neighbours Nuneaton Town (as pictured here), allowing Coventry’s manager Steven Pressley and Ogrizovic to run the rule over the ex-Arsenal stopper in live action. Playing 150 minutes against Football League opposition (Derby County and Notts County) Reice conceded only one goal for the Conference Premier club, and demonstrated some of the shot stopping prowess and excellent footwork that Reice has established a growing reputation for.
After Reice signed an one year deal with an option with the Sky Blues, Full Contact’s Head of Football Agency Lee Payne stated “Coventry City is a great club for Reice at this stage of his career. He had a taste of first team football in League Two last season, but he is now at a club where he is going to be working with a goalkeeping coach renowned for bringing through and developing talent, and I am sure it won’t be too long before Reice will want to be challenging for the no.1 jersey here. It may be that he goes out and gets some loan experience, and the recent appearances he made for Nuneaton stand him in good stead for that, but whatever happens I think this has been a good move for both Coventry City and Reice.”
We wish Coventry City and Reice all the best for the coming season.
