All of us at the Sky Blue Trust are delighted at todays news that James Maddison has been called up to the England squad for the matches against Spain and Croatia.
Anyone who has watched his development from a young lad at the Sky Blues Academy through to his first team debut just 4 short years ago will have seen for themselves what a dedicated and talented player he was always going to be.
James Maddison is a very special talent as he has demonstrated, albeit far too briefly, for the Sky Blues, then at Norwich City and currently at Leicester City.
We've no doubt that he will now go on to do the same as an England player and we wish him every success.
We'd also like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone at the Academy who has helped play a part in his development, in particular Gregor Rioch and Rich Stevens.
However far James goes in the game, we believe it will be the very top, he is and always will be a Coventry kid.
He's one of our own and we couldn't be prouder.
Good luck James.
