Liam Moakes 4th May, 2020

COVENTRY United footballer Kyle Carey completed a 1,000 keep-up challenge at the weekend to show his support to the NHS and key workers.

The forward took just four attempts to complete the challenge which requires a ball to be kicked in the air consecutively without touching the ground.

He told the Observer: “I came close on my third attempt with 988 kicks which was so close, but I finally got there on the fourth try.”

Kyle says he has more challenges planned. Watch the video of Kyle’s impressive feat by visiting http://facebook.com/470171216391881/posts/2861158763959769/?vh=e&d=n
