Full Contact client Reice Charles-Cook has today put pen to paper on a new, long-term contract at Coventry City.
Reice, 21, pictured above signing his contract with Full Contact’s Lee Payne and Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has extended his stay with the Sky Blues until the summer of 2018.
After joining Coventry in the summer of 2014, Reice’s first season at the club was spent either out on loan to Nuneaton or as their no.2 keeper. This season, under new management, Reice’s debut came on the 11th August in the League Cup and on the 3rd October 2015 he made his Football League debut. A clean-sheet on League debut was a sign of things to come – it would be 578 minutes of football until Reice conceded a goal, breaking Steve Ogrizovic’s post-war record of 572 minutes in the process.
After such a stunning start to his first team career, Coventry City moved quickly to secure Reice’s long-term future. As Lee Payne explained “There was never any question for Reice or us of wanting to be anywhere else beyond this season, which his former contract was due to expire. Reice is working under a keeper coach in Steve Ogrizovic who is a legend in the game and who Reice loves working with and learning from, and he has a manager who embraces and encourages his style of play. He has started 7 Football League games now for Coventry City and this new deal allows Reice to focus on just thing now – playing as many games as possible, as soon as possible, and improving all the time. We have worked with Reice since he was a young player at Arsenal and our belief in his extreme talent and potential has never dimmed, so it is very satisfying to see him starting to develop as an excellent young keeper.”
All at Full Contact wish Reice and Coventry City the very best for the remainder of the season. Some footage of Reice’s performances for the Sky Blues in recent weeks is shown below.
