City twins get Sky Blues first team call

Coventry Editorial 12th Nov, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

SKY Blues Academy duo Devon Kelly-Evans and Dion Kelly-Evans are the latest youngsters to be handed squad numbers by manager Steven Pressley.

The 18-year-old twins from Holbrookes are lifelong City fans and have caught the eye of Pressley whilst playing for both the club’s Under-18s and Under-21s this season.

Devon, who has already made a first-team appearance for the Sky Blues in pre-season against Stevenage, plays predominantly on the left-wing in midfield but can also play at wing-back.

While Dion has enjoyed a terrific season for the Under-18s and Under-21s, turning in many eye-catching performances at right wing-back.

Dion will wear shirt number 35 and Devon will wear shirt number 39.

Pressley has also decided to recall goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook from a loan spell at Nuneaton Borough.

The former Arsenal keeper signed for the Sky Blues in the summer and was immediately loaned out to the Boro to secure first-team experience until January.

But the 20-year old has been recalled following Lee Burge’s dismissal in the Worcester City defeat on Saturday which earned the youngster a three-game ban.
