League Two Playoff champions Coventry City have made Junior Brown their third summer signing as they prepare for their first season back in the third tier.

Brown joins the Sky Blues on a two year deal from Shrewsbury, and will join up with the club when his contract expires with the Shrews at the end of the month.

The left back suffered a serious injury in October which ruled him out for the remainder of the season, so he was limited to just 15 appearances during Town’s impressive campaign.

Brown had been offered a new deal by Shrewsbury, but he rejected fresh terms at Greenhous Meadow.

He joined Shrewsbury from Mansfield in 2015 and has spent three years with the club.

In 89 appearances for the Shrews, Brown scored 6 goals and firmly established himself as the clubs first choice left back.

Coventry already have two left backs contracted to the club in Chris Stokes and Ryan Haynes, so it looks likely that one of them will depart with the arrival of Brown.

After winning promotion back to League One last season, Coventry manager Mark Robins as not hidden the fact that the Sky Blues will be aiming for back to back promotions next time out.

The former Scunthorpe boss has also said that Brown’s experience will be key in a youthful Coventry squad.

Speaking to the club website, Robins said: “I am very pleased to bring Junior to the club and that he has chosen to accept our offer, having also had other options on the table too.

“He is a player with much experience at this level and is strong both defensively and in attack too. We look forward to him joining us in July and adding further quality to our squad.”
