COVENTRY have snapped up Gavin Ward on a free transfer after he impressed on trial at Highfield Road.

Ward has been looking for a new club after turning down a new deal at Walsall.

Sky Blues boss Gary McAllister was keen to bring in an experienced goalkeeper to act as cover for new number one Scott Shearer and he has brought in Ward on a one-year deal.

"We're delighted to get somebody with Gavin's experience in. Scott Shearer will be our first choice this season but Gavin will certainly push him hard for the jersey," McAllister told the club's official website.

"He comes with vast experience and has played for many clubs at this level."
