Coventry City are delighted to announce that captain Liam Kelly has signed a new contract with the Club.

Kelly has put pen to paper on a new one-year deal with the Sky Blues.

Already the Club’s longest-serving player, midfielder Kelly joined City in the Summer of 2017.

He was a key part of the side that won the League Two Play-Off final in 2018 and was named captain in the 2018/19 campaign. Kelly then lifted the League One title in the 2019/20 season as he led the Sky Blues to promotion.

Kelly has continued to be Coventry City captain as Mark Robins’ side has established itself in the Championship. Kelly figured prominently during the final months of the 2022/23 campaign the Sky Blues achieved a fifth place finish and he skippered the side in last season’s Play-Off Final.

The 33-year-old has now made a total of 161 appearances for the Sky Blues, scoring 3 goals, as he extends his six-year spell with the Sky Blues.

Manager Mark Robins said:

“I am delighted that Liam has signed a new contract with the Sky Blues.

“He has been an integral part of what has been achieved at this Football Club over the last six year and continues to make a key contribution both on and off the field.

“Having recovered from injury, his influence during the final few months of the season as we reached the Play-Off Final was clear to see and we look forward to continuing to work with him.”
