NEWS: Harrison Nee offered first professional contract!

21 May 2021

Coventry City are delighted to confirm that Harrison Nee has been offered his first professional deal with the Sky Blues!

The 18-year-old forward joined the Sky Blues Academy as an Under 11. This year Harrison has been prolific and finished the season with 18 goals in 18 league games, despite missing a couple of months of the campaign through injury.

He is an adaptable player who operates in the front third of the pitch, and has a great work rate away from the ball to help those around him. Since joining the Academy, he has progressed through the system, developing both his self-awareness and game understanding.

Harrison’s next challenge will be to transfer the performances and influences he has shown in the Under 18s to the next level up as he joins the Sky Blues Under 23s set up at Ryton, with his professional contract commencing from 1st July 2021.

Academy Manager Dan Bolas said:

“In his Under 18 season, Harrison has really put together all the hard work and information given to him throughout his time with the Club and had an excellent campaign, and it is great news that he has now signed his first professional contract with Coventry City.

“Great credit should also go to his family for the excellent support that they have shown to Harrison throughout his time with us.

“His challenge moving into the Under 23s squad is to transfer the ability and influence he has shown in Under 18s games and continue his development.

“It is important that we celebrate the success of young players who have progressed through the Academy ages groups in going on to earn a professional contract, and everyone at the Academy wishes Harrison all the best for the next phase of his journey with Coventry City.”
