Coventry Editorial 29th Apr, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

EXPERIENCED duo Wayne Evans and Cliffie Hodgson have pledged their future to Coventry after putting pen-to-paper on new deals.

Coventry will be looking to build on what has been a record breaking campaign so far as they prepare to launch an ambitious assault on the National League One title.

And those plans include holding onto Evans and Hodgson who will remain remain at the Butts Park Arena for another season.

Evans joined Coventry at the beginning of the current season and has been an ever present for Scott Morgan’s side having made 29 appearances.

The 30-year-old has been a calming influence to the squad and his experience was a key ingredient during Coventry’s record breaking 18-match unbeaten run.

Hodgson, 25, will remain at the Butts Park Arena for a fifth successive season and his kicking exploits have already made him something of a Coventry legend after amassing no fewer than 252 points so far, which has included eight tries from 22 starts.

The South African, who is studying law, is currently out with a shoulder injury but is hoping to return back to full fitness in time for the start of the 2015/16 season.
