Football round-up: Coventry City, Luton Town and Plymouth Argyle

Webster back training at Coventry

Former Hearts and Rangers defender Andy Webster has returned to Coventry City – but only for pre-season training.

The 33-year-old Scotland cap, who was linked with a return to Tynecastle earlier in the year, is out of contract this summer and has been told he does not have a future under Tony Mowbray at Coventry.

Mowbray, who also has former Dundee United midfielder Danny Swanson back at the club, told the Coventry Telegraph: “(Andy) asked if he could come and join in the pre-season, which is no problem to me. He’s a good lad and good pro so he’ll work with us until he’s ready to move on.”


McCourt brings winning mentality to Luton

Paddy McCourt hopes his experience of winning silverware with Celtic can rub off on new club Luton Town.

The 31-year-old Northern Ireland internationalist joined the League Two side on a two-year deal this week after leaving Brighton at the end of last season.

He told “This is a club that’s very ambitious and the thinking behind signing a two-year contract was there’s a belief that not only we can be successful this year, but we can carry that on again the following season.

“This club wants to go places and be challenging at the top end of the league, and that’s where I want to be myself.

“Hopefully I can bring the experience of winning things in the past but it’s not as easy as just signing players. Next season is going to be a lot of hard work.”


Adams simply Wylde about new signing

Derek Adams reckons new signing Gregg Wylde will fit the bill perfectly for his Plymouth Argyle side.

Wylde has joined the Pilgrims on a one-year deal after his contract was not renewed at St Mirren and new boss Adams is thrilled with his capture of the former Rangers and Aberdeen winger.

The former Ross County manager told “Gregg has good experience. He’s played for Rangers in the Premier League and Champions League. He’s played in England before with Bolton and Bury.

“He’s got a good pedigree – a winger, very quick and likes to get to the line and get the ball in the box.

“We’ll like to get the ball down and pass it, but we’ll also like to get the ball wide as well. We like to play with that entertaining style.”
