Teenage midfielder leaves Coventry United

Former Liverpool academy graduate Simran Jhamat has parted ways with Coventry United after joining the club from fellow FA Women’s Championship side Leicester City in January of this year.

The 19-year-old midfielder made four appearances in a red and green shirt prior to the early conclusion of the FA Women’s Championship season but it has today been confirmed that she will not be staying with Jay Bradford’s team in 2020/2021.

Coventry United confirmed the player’s departure via their official Twitter account.


During her time at Leicester City, Jhamat made 12 appearences for The Vixens in the FA Women’s Championship while she scored one goal which came in the club’s 3-1 defeat at London City Lionesses back in September last year.

Jhamat has also represented England at various youth levels but she now finds herself on the hunt for her third club a little over six months after leaving Coventry United. She joins midfield compatriot Ffion Morgan in leaving Coventry United during this transfer window.

It has thus far been a busy window for Coventry United, not only in terms of departures but they have also tied down top scorers Amber Hughes and Shannon O’Brien to new deals for the 2020/2021 season. On top of this, Katy Morris and Helen Dermody have also committed themselves to play at the Butts Park Arena once again next season so despite the two departures, Coventry United may already have the makings a decent side next campaign if they are able to add further strength to their roster.
