PRESS WATCH: Josh Eccles on his Sky Blues season so far

17 April 2020

Coventry City midfielder Josh Eccles has been talking about his season so far with the Sky Blues.

“I have just got to be patient,” he said when speaking to the Coventry Telegraph this week.

“If you look at the people in my positions, there’s Liam Kelly who is the captain and Liam Walsh who has been outstanding this season, so you can’t really complain."


Academy graduate Eccles played his first game for the Sky Blues last season in the EFL Trophy, and this season has made 11 appearances for the Club as he continues his development.

With the Sky Blues central midfield fit and in-form, Eccles has found first-team opportunities more limited since the turn of the year, but he has continued to impress at Ryton and for the Under 23s.

"You have to keep on your toes and keep pushing the players in front of you because you never know what can happen," said 20-year-old Eccles.

"If there’s an injury you have to be ready to take your chance when it comes.”

He added: "I have learned a lot this season, especially watching Championship players like Walshy [Liam Walsh] and Callum O’Hare who is from a Premier League club.

"It’s been a massive success for me with the amount of games I have got and I am just really grateful for that."
