FOOTBALL - Coventry United appoint Hood as new manager

COVENTRY United have appointed Jamie Hood as the club’s new manager following the departure of former boss Ellis Alleyne.

Hood has more than 20 years of experience as a player across Step Two, Three and Four of the Non-League Pyramid.

And Hood replaces former United boss Alleyne in the Butts Park Arena dugout after he moved up from under-21s manager during the 2023/24 campaign.

Hood said: “I am really pleased to be given this opportunity at a great club. Coventry United is going forwards and I want to be a big part of that.

“I have been playing in non-league for 22 years at steps two, three and four so I have plenty of experience in the game.”
