"Despite the award it's been a very bad season, we're eager to improve next season." Coventry City's John Fleck

6 May 2015

The Sky Blues spoke after he was awarded the Players' Player of the Year and wants the club to improve on a "bad season"...

Coventry City midfielder John Fleck was delighted to win the Players' Player of the Year this season and is eager for the club to improve ahead of the 2015/16 season.

The 23-year old made 48 appearances for the club and only missed two games in the SkyBet League one this season.

The Scot was pleased to pick up the gong and to be voted as the winner by the majority of the squad. 

"It's great to know what the players think of you and it's nice to win the award," Fleck said.

"Jim cleaned up on the awards too and he deserves to win his too so we're both happy! But again, I'm pleased to win and it's always great to be voted by your peers. I want to add goals to my game next season and I want to keep improving my game."

The Sky Blues finished 17th in the league and secured their League One survival on the last day of the season with the 2-1 victory over Crawley.

Fleck is desperate to improve on a "bad season" for the club and is hopeful of manager Tony Mowbray staying with the Sky Blues.

He continued: "Despite the award it's been a very bad season for the football club, there is no point in kidding ourselves. It wasn't good enough throughout the whole season and at times it was really bad and we have been inconsistent, we need to try and get that right next season.

"I think there is only eight or nine players who will start pre-season at the moment! Hopefully the manager can get his side sorted, stay with us and can get some players in. We go from there and rebuild for next campaign and we are all eager to improve from a forgettable season."
