Aaron Phillips signs new two-and-a-half year contract.

PHILLIPS, Aaron 1

Ahead of this afternoon’s League One fixture away at Rotherham United, right-back Aaron Phillips has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with Coventry City.

Phillips, who starts the game at The New York Stadium on the substitutes bench has made 12 appearances for The Sky Blues this season after making his senior debut in the opening game of the season in the 3-2 loss at Crawley Town.

Phillips, 20, came off the substitute’s bench at Molineux in October to score the equaliser with his first professional goal in a 1-1 draw with League One title favourites Wolves.

Phillips will now remain with the club until June 2016.

Manager Steven Pressley said: “Aaron is another young player that we think very highly of and we’re delighted to extend his stay.

“He’s grabbed his opportunity with both hands and on a number of occasions this season he has shown what he is capable of and also the level of potential he has to become even better.

“He has great energy and enthusiasm and has shown tremendous maturity and attitude for somebody of his age. Despite only making his debut this season he has displayed his ability and desire to come on and make an impact on games in both his tackling and his ambition to get high up the pitch – something which led to his first goal.

“I’m really happy for the kid, he’s the kind of young player that we want coming through our system and he fully deserves his new deal.”
