Thorn: Pleased with Burge's progress
Coventry City have handed young goalkeeper Lee Burge a long-term contract.
The 18-year-old is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Championship outfit although manager Andy Thorn has named him on the bench.
Burge had signed a one-year deal at the Ricoh Arena earlier this summer but has already been rewarded with an extension, committing himself to the Sky Blues until 2014.
He is the latest of several Academy graduates to pledge their long-term future to the club with the likes of Gael Bigirimana, Nathan Cameron, Callum Wilson, Shaun Jeffers and Jordan Clarke having recently signed new deals too.
