Corcoran Contract Offer From New Boss

Corcoran Contract Offer From New Boss

Sam Corcoran is could be back with Colchester United today following his initial release under now Coventry manager Aidy Boothroyd.

Boothroyd`s successor John Ward offered the 19-year-old midfielder a new year-long contract after discussions with Robbie Cowling yesterday ahead of his confirmed arrival as manager.

"I`ve rung him this morning and offered him another year`s contract, because I think he`s got an opportunity to progress," Ward said, echoing the thoughts of former boss Paul Lambert, who gave the player a second-team taster as a substitute before leaving at the start of the season just ended to coach Norwich.

Corcoran was then loaned to Wealdstone for a period under Boothroyd before being released.

Ward, though, described the player`s recall as a matter of "differing opinions" between himself and Boothroyd.

He added: "He`s only a first-year boy and we think another year is important for him."

God stuff, has look pretty impressive in the glimpses I've seen from him - was disappointed when he left a few weeks ago. Although he's only been offered a new deal - nothings signed quite yet!
