Goalkeeper Lee Burge became the latest Sky Blues player to commit to a new contract, signing a new two-year deal last week.

The 24-year old Academy Graduate has been with the club since the age of eleven, and is hoping to help Mark Robins' side bounce back to the third tier at the first attempt next season.  

"You can see by the signings the gaffer has made that we really want to be pushing next season and I want to be part of a successful team," Burge said.

"We want to carry the form we built up since the arrival of Mark Robins and push towards the promotion places as soon as we can. I think you can see once he came in there was a response from the lads."

Fellow goalkeeper Liam O'Brien is just one of six new players already signed ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, but Burge is adament competition for places is an important part of any successful side.

He continued: "It's definitely healthy competition, the gaffer said that he would be bringing in another goalkeeper to provide competition and I am fine with that.

"I am ready to prove myself further and stake a claim to be the number one, I want to help us return to where we should be.

"It's beginning to look like they'll be competition for places across the whole side and that is exactly what needs to happen for us to bounce back. We want everybody to be fighting for their place and challenging themselves."
