Lee Knibbs has strengthened his Coventry Sphinx squad with the addition of defender Liam Kay.
The 29-year-old returns to the club where he started his football career in the junior ranks. Kay progressed through to the Coventry Sphinx first team as a teenager.
He reunites with Callum Woodward who was a Sphinx teammate of his in their younger days at the club.
Kay joined Coalville Town, where he made over 100 appearances before having a brief spell at Grantham Town.
He then moved onto Barwell in 2015 where he has successfully played for the last three years. While at Barwell, he had a brief loan spell at Coventry Sphinx in 2016 before returning to Barwell to continue his career.
Kay now reunites with manager Lee Knibbs, who also managed him as teenager at Coventry Sphinx. Knibbs is delighted to get the services of a long-term target and said:
“My main objective is to build a core of players who have a strong connection with Coventry Sphinx. Liam epitomises everything I’m looking for in a player. He’s experienced, he’s a winner and he’s a Sphinx man.”
