Pen Pic

Coventry City's first summer signing of 2015 was unveiled in early July with 33-year-old Sam Ricketts putting pen to paper on a one-year deal at the Ricoh Arena.

Tony Mowbray was delighted to land a player who he felt could be a 'leader' for a relatively youthful Sky Blues side and the stats from Ricketts' career back that up.

He has played over 500 senior games and the headlines of that are obviously his spells in the Premier League with Hull City and Bolton Wanderers.

That in itself is no guarantee of success at a lower level but, from his early days in the Conference with Telford, through promotion campaigns with Swansea and 44 league appearances for Wolves when they won League One in 2013/14, Ricketts knows what the game is about at all levels and his calming presence has been an important factor so far this season in a youthful Sky Blues side.

Able to play in the centre or at right-back, Mowbray seems to prefer Ricketts in the latter position where he provides a solid barrier to opposing full-backs but also a surprisingly effective attacking presence.
