INTERVIEW: Luke Bell says it was a 'no-brainer' after extending his stay at Coventry City

Sky Blues shot-stopper, Luke Bell, was delighted to have agreed new terms with Coventry City.

The 20-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a contract extension, which will see him extend his stay until the summer of 2025.

Bell said it was an easy decision to make and that he is looking to build on his development so far ahead of the upcoming 2024/25 campaign.

 

Was it an easy decision to make, committing your future to the football club?

“Yeah, it was a very easy decision. This club has been fantastic for me for the past four years, and it was just a no brainer, really.”

 

How has the last year been for you?

“It’s been very good. I’ve been developing loads with getting experience more this season and training with the first team off Ben, Si and Brad and my development is going very well.”

 

What is it like, training with the first team every day?

“It is nerve wracking at the start, but then, you get used to it, but the pressure is always there and to be fair, with pressure, I think I play better and train better.”

 

Testing yourself against those attackers help you to improve?

“Sometimes it can be a very long day. Godders as well just can bury me sometimes in the goal, but other days I can be on my game, and, save loads of shots.”

 

You featured regularly for the Under-21s, as well as captaining the side, how was that experience?

“The 21s are a very good side, to be fair, we’ve struggled this season a bit, but I’ve had loads of shots and for my personal development, it’s been very good.

 (On captaining the side) Very, very strange. I’m not used to being, captain, but it does feel good to captain the team.”

 

What are your targets for the new season?

“Hoping to go out on loan. But, at this moment, I’m ready for the preseason and excited to get back.

Playing against men would be very good, very challenging because they’re more physical.

I’ve been training loads, to be fair, and just, give myself the best opportunity when I get back.”
