Conor Coventry is a deep-lying midfielder who won West Ham United's Dylan Tombides Award at the end of the 2017/18 season.
A Republic of Ireland U19 international, Coventry has an all-round game which enables him to both recover possession and put his team on the front foot with his accurate passing.
The teenager made his senior Hammers debut in the 8-0 EFL Cup third-round win over Macclesfield Town at London Stadium in September 2018.
The following season, Coventry was appointed captain of West Ham's U23s by new lead coach Dmitri Halajko, making 14 appearances during the first half of the season in their unbeaten run to the 2019/20 Premier League 2 Division 2 title.
After putting pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half year deal with West Ham United in January 2020, Coventry spent the second half of the campaign developing at League One team Lincoln City, making seven appearances as they narrowly fell short of promotion.
In 2020/21, the young midfielder captained the Hammers’ U23 side to Premier League 2 Division 1 safety last season, putting in numerous influential appearances as he netted seven goals in 20 appearances, also earning his first senior Republic of Ireland call-up in March 2021. He also made his third senior appearance for the Hammers against Charlton Athletic in the Carabao Cup.
Coventry also became a regular selection for Republic of Ireland U21s, a pivotal figure during their two spirited – if ultimately unsuccessful – European U21 Championship qualification campaigns.
After scoring twice in pre-season for the West Ham United first-team to kick off 2021/22, Coventry was named amongst David Moyes' substitutes for the season-opening 4-2 win over Newcastle United.
