24 May 2017

Manager Mark Robins has said that he is looking forward to an exciting season, and has thanked fans who have committed to a Season Ticket so far.

Robins also revealed the six signings brought in already makes up around 50% of the transfer business he expects to complete this summer – not including re-engagement of players whose current Sky Blues deals are coming to an end.

“I’ve been delighted with the six signings we’ve made so far. They are all quality additions to the squad, many of which have experience of previous success in League Two.

“Much credit has to go to our recruitment department. The work done to improve in this area is already bearing fruit, with a targeted approach to signing the right individuals for the club.”

The Sky Blues boss confirmed he expects to bring in more players to the Sky Blues squad, as he looks to put out the strongest team he can in August.

“I expect the business done so far is around 50% of the signings we expect to make this summer. On top of this, the process to re-engage with players whose current contracts with us have expired is continuing and hopefully we’ll have some positive news very soon.

“As I have said, we are building a club, not just a team – for now and for the future. Each player who forms the squad next season will have an important role to play in this. This is a process which never stops, and will continue during this summer and beyond.

“We’re working hard and diligently to create an exciting team for supporters, and the best possible team for the start of next season and our push for promotion.

“I can only thank everyone who has bought a Season Ticket so far. The support of our fans is vital, and I cannot wait to see and hear the Ricoh rocking during next season in support of a team, and a club, that you can be proud of.”
