Vanarama National League North club Nuneaton Town secured the services of striker Joe Thomas and secured Coventry City under-23 skipper Devon Kelly-Evans on loan for the remainder of the season.

Highly-rated striker Thomas joins on a dual registration with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South side Chasetown.

The teenager was part of the Wolves academy until the age of 15, also representing England at under-16 level during this time and the England Colleges team over the past couple of years.

He spent time with Leicester City and Barnsley before serving Stafford Rangers and most recently the Scholars, for whom he has scored 5 goals in seven outings with some eye-catching displays.

“I am delighted to be able to bring Joe to the club to bolster our attacking options,” said manager, Tommy Wright. “I saw him score two and make two assists in a recent game against Basford, so I’ll be having a closer look at him between now and the end of the season.

“I am confident that he can make the step up; he is a very technical player with a keen eye for goal and I am looking forward to working closely with him.”

Twenty-year-old Kelly-Evans (below) made his senior debut for The Sky Blues earlier this season having signed a professional deal in May 2015.

He returns to The Coombe Abbey Arena, much to the delight of Wright.

“He’s a really talented lad, so it’s great to have him back here,” he said. “He has already showed us what he is capable of and his pace will be a real asset to us between now and the end of the season.

“The pleasing thing is that he wanted to return here and play for the club.

“I’d like to thank Nicky Eaden and Mark Robins at Coventry for making it happen. It gives us a real boost for the weekend”.
