Coventry duo sign permanent deals

Published Add your comment

Coventry manager Andy Thorn and assistant Steve Harrison have both officially put pen to paper on their contracts at the Ricoh Arena.

Thorn, caretaker boss for just over six weeks following Aidy Boothroyd's departure, was awarded the reins on a permanent basis at the end of April, verbally agreeing his position.

But both he and Harrison have now signed on the dotted line, and chairman Ken Dulieu said: "We are delighted both Andy and Steve have signed contracts with the club and that all of the paperwork is now complete. Now that's been done, they can continue to concentrate on the team and building a squad for next season."

He added: "We have all recognised what a fantastic job they both did at the end of last season and not only were they the board's choice, they were quite clearly the fans' choice too.


"The brand of football, coupled with excellent results - particularly at the Ricoh Arena where the team went unbeaten under their stewardship - really lifted the whole club.

"That was seen from the reaction during and after the final home game of the season and we are delighted that they have both signed their deals to take the club forward next season."
