Cranie could give us a lift - Thorn

Wed, 02 May 14:25:50 2012

Coventry boss Andy Thorn has appealed to the club's board to offer a new contract to Martin Cranie.

The defender's contract expires in the summer and Thorn is urging them to take action with the 25-year-old open minded about his future.

Cranie has made over 100 appearances for the Sky Blues but is reportedly assessing his options following their relegation from the npower Championship.

"I've asked the club to speak to him regarding re-signing and we'll see where we go with that," Thorn told the Coventry Telegraph.

"I'd like to keep Martin because he's been terrific and he's formed a decent partnership with Richard Keogh and they are the right age for us as well.

"None of the lads want to play in League One but it's something we have to do and if we can do what Southampton did by keeping hold of a lot of their players we can hopefully achieve what they have."

  7. Well, does it matter who leaves? Mr, Thorn has said­ that he has been asked to stay and rebuild! SISU are­ backing him. Well Mr Thorn rebuild man rebuild.I cant­ wait to see how much they will give you. Remembering­ that the rent is 100k a month. I reckon you will be­ doing a Cranie and moving out.

  8. If, as a poster has written...Crainie has "Given­ notice to quit" on his rented property....I think­ we can all assume he's going.
