Pennington Picks Up Sky Blues Award

by Daniel Alston

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."
