CONNECTIONS: Coventry City could face former Academy graduates Jordan Clarke and Gary McSheffrey tomorrow

11 September 2015

The Sky Blues could face McSheffrey and Clarke tomorrow at Glanford Park...

Coventry City could face two former players against Scunthorpe tomorrow at Glanford Park.

Both of the players are Academy graduates and look set for a run out against Tony Mowbray’s men tomorrow...


Clarke made over 150 appearances for the Sky Blues between 2008 and 2014.

The local lad captained the Under-16s and Under-18s sides before making his first-team debut in the Championship, as well as being a part of the England Under-19s squad.

Clarke was then sold by Steven Pressley in January 2014 to Scunthorpe and has played six times this season and has helped the Iron to two clean sheets.


McSheffrey started his career with the Sky Blues, playing 162 games and scoring 53 goals before moving to Birmingham City in 2006.

He made a blistering impact in the Premier League for City in his first spell and that has never been forgotten by the City faithful.

He re-joined Coventry in June 2010 on a free transfer and went on to make another 119 appearances, scoring 19 times McSheffrey signed for Scunthorpe in January 2014.
