Charles-Cook sets new post-war record.

CHARLES-Cook, ReiceCoventry City goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook this afternoon set a new post-war Club record in the 2-2 draw at Swindon Town.

Going into the game with five consecutive clean sheets since replacing an ill Lee Burge (four league, one JPT,) the former Arsenal academy star was closing in on a post-war record clean sheet record held by Steve Ogrizovic.

Needing to avoid conceding before the 78th minute, Charles-Cook achieved the record with his goal finally being breached by Ben Gladwin in the 85th minute of the match, setting the new record at 580 minutes.

Despite now being the holder of the post-war record, Charles-Cook could not claim the Club record held by Horace Pearson, set in 1934 at 608 minutes. (Courtesy of Club historian Jim Brown.)

Congratulations Reice!
