THE HUNDRED CLUB: Jordan Shipley

Three players have entered the 100 club this season…

20 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.

Jordan Shipley:

‘One of our own’, Jordan Shipley has become a fans favourite at Coventry City for his never say die performances and living every City’s fans dream of representing the club they support.

Fans first got a glimpse of the midfielder in City colours when the Academy graduate was handed his debut for the club by Mark Robins in a 1-0 win over Walsall in April 2017.

Shipley came on in the 84th minute for Vladimir Gadzhev, as he got his first taste of what would become a regular occurrence over the next three years.

Following several appearances off the bench and in cup competitions at the start of the 2017/18 season, it wasn’t until Luton Town away, when Shipley scored his first goal for the club in a 3-0 win at Kenilworth Road, that he finally announced himself on the scene.

Since that moment, the midfielder has never looked back as the next League game against Lincoln City he would go on to make his first start in League Two.

That season, Shipley would go on to make 41 appearances, scoring six goals, including the second in the 3-1 League Two Play-Off Final win over Exeter City at Wembley.

Jordan was deployed mainly as left winger during his early run, showing his versatility to play anywhere for the club, something he would continue in the 2018/19 season in League One.

Having established himself as a first team regular, Shipley made 36 appearances during his second season in the side, scoring a memorable goal in the 5-4 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, as he began to move into his favoured centre of midfield.

This would be something the midfielder would pick-up in the 2019/20 season, as his consistent performances earned him a new deal at the end of August 2019.

Then, on the 1st of December 2019, in an FA Cup draw with Ipswich Town, Shipley would become the first of the three players to join the 100 club this season.

Shipley currently has 120 Sky Blues appearances to his name, scoring 16 goals along the way to becoming a key member in the Coventry City side.
