THE HUNDRED CLUB: Dom Hyam

Three players have entered the 100 club this season…

23 March 2020

During the course of the 2019/20 season the Coventry City 100 Club has seen three new additions join the illustrious list and we take a look at the newest members.

Dom Hyam:

City’s 2018/19 Player of the Season and Player’s Player of the Season joined the hundred club this season through grit and determination as his talent and ability shone through.

Dom joined the Sky Blues during the summer transfer window of 2017/18, after his departure from Championship club Reading at the end of the previous season.

Hyam was one of three new central defenders to join the Sky Blues that summer, with Rod McDonald and Tom Davies also following suit.

Dom would ultimately start the season at centre-back alongside McDonald in the curtain raiser against Notts County at the Ricoh Arena.

However, after five appearances in the opening month of the season, Dom would only feature on three more occasions between then and February of 2018.

With injuries to Jack Grimmer and Tom Davies, Jordan Willis was deployed as a right-back and Hyam moved back into the back four alongside McDonald once more.

This would been the chance Hyam needed as he would then play 14 times in the run-in to winning promotion at Wembley in the League Two Play-Off Final, starting the game against Exeter City.

From that moment onwards, Hyam hasn’t looked back as his career with the Sky Blues picked up where he had left off ahead of the 18/19 season, as he made 41 appearances, his highest amount in professional football.

Dom also would go on to score his first goal for the club, in what would eventually be a disappointing afternoon in a defeat to Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

The centre-back would be recognised by supporters and his team mates for his performances during this campaign as at the end of the season awards he was named Player’s Player and Player of the Season.

Entering his third season, Hyam agreed a new deal with the club during the current campaign, extending his stay, as he established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet.

This season the defender has forged a solid partnership in a back three alongside Kyle McFadzean and Michael Rose, who were both drafted in during the previous summer window.

The defender has also continued to chip in with a goal or two, having scored against Gillingham and Sunderland this season.

Hyam would eventually make his 100th appearance in the 1-0 win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road on the 7th of March, with three goals to his name.
