City Start Squad Clear Out

Andy Ducros, Coventry City FCThe Sky Blues have transfer-listed a trio of young international players – and freed six others.

Willie Boland, who has played more than 50 Premiership games for the club which he joined six years ago, England under-18 international Andrew Ducros [pictured right] and Republic of Ireland international Barry Prenderville are now available for sale.

Irishman Boland has been unable to claim a first team place this season while Ducros has failed to live up to the early promise that saw him earn a place at the FA School of Excellence at Lilleshall.

Manager Gordon Strachan also said that six first year professionals were being freed as well but declined to name them.

The moved follows chairman Bryan Richardson’s pledge that the squad would be cut from over 40 to around 25.

Meanwhile Paul Telfer is just one booking away from a trip to FA headquarters. The dogged Scotsman reached double figures for a foul on Everton’s Nick Barmby during the 2-1 FA Cup defeat at Goodison Park on Saturday.

If he transgresses once more he will be banned for the third time this season and have to explain his conduct.

The club’s two youth teams had a mixed weekend. The under-17s beat Watford 3-0 thanks to goals from Gary McSheffrey, Thomas Cudworth and schoolboy Peter McConnell, but the under-19s lost 2-1 away from home against the same opposition. Steve McPhee scored the goal.
