Newcastle loan star Jamie Sterry has penned an open letter to Coventry City fans.
The 21 year old right-back’s loan period has come to an end and he wanted to thank everybody at the club for their support whilst he was there.
Coventry City continue to struggle on and off the pitch but for the young Newcastle defender that move has been a personal success.
Whilst the team are in the League One relegation zone and off the pitch there are endless problems with finance and whether or not they will stay playing at the stadium, Jamie Sterry got his head down and played 20 times, emerging as one of Coventry’s few bright spots this season.
Like most young players at St James Park, Sterry has had little chance to show what he can do in recent seasons – his first team experience limited to six minutes at the end of the Spurs match on the final day of last season, then his first and only start so far in the League Cup win over Cheltenham at the beginning of this season.
With Yedlin and Anita fighting for right-back, it looks unlikely that Jamie Sterry will be getting any chances in the near future and looks destined for another loan spell somewhere.
Having played for Coventry in the FA Cup this season it also rules himself out of any involvement this Saturday at Birmingham.
Jamie Sterry via his Twitter account:
“I would like to say a big thank-you to everyone at Coventry City Football Club, the fans, players and staff for the support that you have game me and for all you have taught me!
“This is a special club with amazing fans and I will never forget my time here.
“I have really enjoyed my time at the club and would like to wish everyone involved all the best for the remainder of the season.”
