Coventry City have further strengthened the club’s development squad with the arrival of 18-year old striker David Bremang.
The youngster is a product of the Conquest Academy, who have a reputation for developing youth footballers in the south of England. He joins on a two-year deal and goes straight into their Under 23 squad.
“David is a tall, athletic and raw striker who will be joining us in the development squad as we continue to add to the side,” said development manager Jason Farndon. “He has been with us for a few weeks and he is a quiet individual and will take some time to adjust, having joined us from Conquest Academy. Conquest are renowned for bringing through players in London and we are looking forward to working with David and continuing his development.”
The Conquest Academy started out in 2012 and has seen a swift and wide-reaching growth that according to their website has ‘completely transformed youth football in the Southern half of England’.
There players are technically free agents and as such are able to sign for clubs outside of the window.
These academies and projects are a great way for young players to enter the game, as Bremang has proven by moving to Coventry.
He might not be in their first team this week or next, but over the next two years be prepared to hear of his development.
