Pennington gets Coventry accolade

06/05/2015  Comments (13)  jump
Everton defender Matthew Pennington will sign off his season-long loan at Coventry City with the honour of being named the club's Young Player of the Year.

The 20-year-old has played 25 times for the League One side this season since joining them on a temporary basis last November and then having his loan spell extended until the end of the season.

"I was delighted to find out that I won Young Player of the Year as it is always nice to be recognised for your efforts and hard work," Pennington said on the Sky Blues' official website.

Another one out of contract this summer. Most likely Pennington will join Garbutt in finding a new club because they cannot get first team football at Everton. Roberto meanwhile will happily plan another season around his favourites like Baines, Alcaraz and Barry.

We seems to be having a lot of good young defenders coming out of the academy or playing for U-18s/U-21s - Galloway, Browning, Pennington. Now, if we could only find our own Â’Harry KaneÂ’, we should do well next season.

Dick, heÂ’s been playing in League One for a reason. Talk of a first-team place is way off the mark. DonÂ’t use it to have a pop at the club.

Just thinking the same thing myself Ajay. Why is it that we just donÂ’t seem to produce any good strikers?

We need to Sign Browning, Pennington, Garbutt and Ledson to new 5-year deals, get them into the squad ASAP and stop wasting money on players like Alcaraz. Sign Lennon, Austin and then get Cleverley on a free.

Maybe take a look at Obbi Oulare. Complete the Henen deal as well.

Pennington, Browning, Jagielka, Alcaraz and Stones are all right-footed CBs. Distin and Galloway are left-footed. LetÂ’s hope Galloway makes the grade.

Pete #3 , if heÂ’s playing League One football heÂ’s at least as good as Alcaraz.

Hi all IÂ’m new on here! I agree with your targets, Tony, except Austin will go elsewhere for big money! We have been linked with Claudio Beuvue, 24 goals so far, at Bordeaux!

For a decent keeper, Agosto in Spain, kept 10 clean sheets in a struggling team, centre back the Dutch guy at Celtic, scores goals too! Pennington btw has been excellent at Coventry!

HavenÂ’t seen anyone yet do the decent thing and congratulate the lad. HeÂ’s spent a while at Coventry but is still an Everton player and heÂ’s done himself and his club proud in winning their Young Player of the Year award. So guess IÂ’ll be the first to say, CONGRATULATIONS, MATTHEW, JOB WELL DONE.

Quite right, Brian.

Welcome Malc. Interesting names. Keep them coming. I love supporter scouting.

Unfortunately, with Martinez, without Premier League experience they usually sit on the bench.

Agreed Brian. Well done young Pennington. Great to read something positive about an Everton player. It might be lower League but there are some good lads down there and plenty of tough old pros to test his courage and ability.

I saw Mathew a few times for the youth teams and reserves. His energy and will to win always impressed me, whether at right back or centre back. I hope he gets a chance at Everton. As Harold points out, Martinez isnÂ’t prone to give young players many games.
