JS is OFF! COVENTRY UNITED F.C. | The Beard Is Back!

The Beard Is Back!

Date: 12 January 2018 at 21:13 by Liam Cook

Coventry United fans were gutted to see him go, but rejoice once more as the Best Beard In The Business is a Red and Green again!


We are pleased to confirm midfielder Kevin Thornton has agreed to return to the club. The former Coventry City, Brighton And Hove Albion and Northampton Town centre-mid left the United back in October of 2017 after long term injury halted his spell in the first team. In order to regain fitness, Kev moved to MFL Division One outfit Hinckley and made an immediate impression, scoring on his debut for the club. He would play for Hinckley 9 times, scoring on two occasions.


Now he has regained his fitness, Kev has decided to return to his adopted home city. A familiar face to many in the local area, the Irish Coventrian made the switch from Rugby Town to Coventry United in the summer of 2016. He would become a mainstay in the Red and Greens starting 11, playing 36 games and scoring 9 goals, leaving him 4th in the club’s top scorers chart for the 2016/17 season. Remembered fondly by the fans for his determined performances, top notch set pieces, and the beard of course, we’re all thrilled to have Kev back at the club and hope his second stint with Coventry United is even more successful than his first.
