Joe Coveney

Intelligent footballer who reads the game with aplomb

Another Manchester boy in Lee Carsley’s squad, Joe impressed Academy staff to be offered a two year scholarship signed in July 2015.

Centre-back Joe is an intelligent footballer who reads the game with aplomb, is quick with an interception and distributes the ball well – perfect for City’s attractive ball-playing philosophy and building from the back.

He suffered a frustrating start to life as a scholar after injury ruled him out of the first few pre-season fixtures in Spain, but he came on as a sub against Rhyl and will be hoping to slot into City’s defence on a regular basis as his scholarship progresses.
