TONY Mowbray believes young striker George Thomas has a bright future with the Sky Blues despite joining League Two side Yeovial Town on a 30-day youth loan.

The 18-year-old moved to Huish Park on Saturday and played a full 90 minutes as Paul Sturrock’s side lost 3-2 against Cambridge United.

Thomas has been in superb form for the Sky Blues’ Under-21s this term having netted four goals.

But Mowbray is keen for the teenager to gain more first team football with the Welsh Under-19 international having made just six appearances for the Sky Blues this season, all of which have come from the bench.

“We see George as a really important part of the future of this football club,” said Mowbray.

“We’ve been delighted with his progress so far this season and we want to see him continue his progression as a professional footballer.

“We feel the next stage of his development is best served by competitive league football as opposed to Under-21s football, and we wish him the best of luck during his time at Yeovil.”

Thomas has been handed the number 16 jersey and will remain at Huish Park until November 21.
