30 November 2022

Coventry City can confirm that Head of Recruitment Chris Badlan and Chief Scout Stuart Benthom have left the Club to explore new opportunities.

Badlan arrived at the Sky Blues in May 2018 and he played an important role in bringing together the squad that would go on to win promotion in 2020 and then established themselves in the Championship, scouting a number of the current squad.

Meanwhile, Benthom joined the Club as Recruitment Analyst in the Summer of 2017 and became Chief Scout in 2022.

Chris Badlan said:

“I want to thank Coventry City FC, especially Mark Robins and David Boddy for the opportunity to be a head of recruitment for the first time and for a fantastic 5 years with lots of memories to take with me.

“I remember seeing the Sky Blue Army for the first time at the League 2 Play-Off final where 40,000 were singing and still get goosebumps hearing you all now, especially the away following

“I’ve loved working for your football club and like to think can walk away with head held high.

“I’ve made a number of close friends in my time working here and want to thank all the coaches, back room staff and players for the fantastic memories.

“I wish you all good luck for the season. #PUSB.”

Coventry City Manager Mark Robins said:

“I would like to put on record my thanks for the work that Chris has done over the time that he has been with the Club and wish him the best of luck the future.

“I would also like to extend that thanks to Stuart too, and also wish him the best for the future.”
