TRANSFER - Coventry City manager Mark Robins signs new contract

COVENTRY City manager Mark Robins has signed a new contract with the club.

The 52-year-old has enjoyed a hugely successful second stint in charge of the Sky Blues since he returned to the City dugout in March 2017.

Robins guided Coventry to wins in both the EFL Trophy final and League Two Play-Off final before securing the League One title in 2020.

And Robins has helped establish City in the Championship this season with a top-half finish in their sights with one league match left to play this season.

Robins told ccfc.co.uk: “I am delighted to have signed a new contract with Coventry City.

“Together we have made huge progress over the last five years and we can be very proud of what we have achieved so far.

“We are now a very competitive Championship side and we want to continue our development.

“There is a very special bond between the fans and the club, as was shown on Saturday and the fantastic season tickets sales too, and I am very passionate about this football club and what we can achieve together.

“I would like to thank the owners and the football club for their commitment to me also, as our work here continues.”

Robins celebrated five years in charge of the club in March and is approaching 300 games at the helm, across two spells, which puts him third in the club’s all-time list.

Chief Executive, Dave Boddy added: “We are delighted to announce that Mark has agreed a new contract with Coventry City.

“The progress which has been made at the club is clear to see and we look forward to this continuing under his excellent leadership.

“That Mark has committed to a new contract shows his clear affection for the club and its supporters, and the on-going commitment he has to continuing his great work here.

“We know fans will welcome this fantastic news and will be looking forward to more great memories being made under Mark’s management.”
