Matthew Pennington has capped his successful loan spell at Coventry City by being named the club's Young Player of the Year.

The 20-year-old defender joined the Sky Blues in November and made 25 appearances throughout 2014/15.

The accolade is voted for by Coventry's coaching staff – and it was announced on Wednesday that manager Tony Mowbray and many of his backroom team had nominated the Everton academy graduate.

Pennington said: "I was delighted to find out that I won Young Player of the Year as it is always nice to be recognised for your efforts and hard work.

"It is a great award. During my time at City, I channelled all my efforts onto the pitch and to cap off my time at the club with this award is really pleasing.

"To win the award as a loan player whilst there are so many talented young players at the club; it is a great honour."
