Sky Blues confirm Boothroyd appointment

Published Add your comment

Coventry have confirmed Aidy Boothroyd as their new manager, with the 39-year-old signing a three-year contract at the Ricoh Arena.

Colchester gave Boothroyd permission to speak to the Sky Blues earlier this week and duly agreed compensation with the Coca-Cola Championship club before negotiations had been completed between the two parties.

But that deal has now been finalised and the former Watford boss has officially taken the reins from Chris Coleman, who was sacked just days after the end of the season after City finished 19th and endured a sorry late slump for the second campaign running.

Chairman Ray Ranson is hoping Boothroyd can follow his achievements at Vicarage Road and be the man to bring Barclays Premier League football back to Coventry.

He will look to do so having missed out on the League One play-off places earlier this month with Colchester, whom he took charge of last September.
