Rovers Sign Striker Jonson Clarke-Harris

31 January 2019

The Club is delighted to announce the arrival of striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, who joins on a permanent deal.

The 24-year-old has experience of playing in both Sky Bet League One and in the Championship and signed on the dotted line ahead of the January transfer window slamming shut at 11pm.

A product of the Coventry City academy - the striker made his first-team debut at the age of just 16 back in 2010, becoming the youngest ever to do so for the club.

Following a stint at Peterborough United and loan spells at both Southend United and Bury, Clarke-Harris made a switch to join Oldham Athletic for the 2013/14 campaign, as a consistent run of games saw the striker contribute eight goals across the season.

Rotherham United acquired the services of the six-foot striker for a reported six-figure sum in 2014, where he made over 50 appearances in the Championship during a four-year stint at the New York Stadium.

The striker arrived at Coventry on loan in January 2017, scoring four goals to aid the Sky Blues promotion from SkyBet League Two and made his return permanent in the summer.

This season to date, the bustling forward has six goals to his name, with his most recent coming against Wycombe Wanderers on New Year's Day.

Manager Graham Coughlan said, "Jonson is a player that I have worked with before and someone who I believe is a top player at this level.

"He has a great amount of pace, he's strong, has a sweet left foot and is someone that can hold the ball up well.

"I believe that given the right amount of guidance, Jonson can be a real star at this football club."
