Coventry United defender Anna Wilcox has signed her first professional deal with the club.
The 25-year-old returned to the Warwickshire club in March 2020 following a spell with third tier side West Bromwich Albion and she has impressed manager Jay Bradford enough to be offered a professional deal.
The player joins young goalkeeper Olivia Clark in signing a new contract at the Butts Park Arena over the last few days.
Wilcox has been instrumental for Coventry United so far this season. The player has played every single minute of FA Women’s Championship football. She is the only player to do so. Attacker Amber Hughes has also made 11 appearances, however, three of those came as a substitute while she has been replaced herself on the same number of occasions.
The deal offered to Wilcox is a further example of Coventry United’s commitment to moving forward on the pitch. Fresh investment was recently secured from three local businessmen who have taken up an ownership stake in the club and The Red and Greens are now set to work towards becoming a full-time professional outfit in the long-term.
