Key Players

Keiren Westwood: The Republic of Ireland international started his career at Manchester City but failed to make a single appearance for the Citizens. In 2004 shot-stopper Westwood joined Carlisle United and was first choice for four seasons before being snapped up by Coventry City in 2008. The talented keeper has been a virtual ever-present between the sticks for the Sky Blues and has a growing reputation amongst footballing circles. Westwood`s lighting fast reflexes have helped cement his place amongst the Championship`s Goalkeeping elite and it won`t be long before he surely makes the step up to the Premiership.
