Ashley Cain is the latest 12th Man signing
Oxford United's 12th Man once again made its mark today when it contributed to the short-term emergency loan signing of Coventry City winger, Ashley Cain.
The 19 year old has immense speed and can play on either flank. Whilst only making a handful of senior appearances for the Sky Blues he is a product of the Coventry City Youth set-up. He joins in time to face Kidderminster Harriers in the FA Trophy Quarter-Final and will play a part in a hectic League programme.
Chairman Kelvin Thomas said: “Once again the 12th Man has come to the clubs help. At this stage of the season we have to make sure that we have enough quality players at the club to get us through a probable 20 games in nine weeks. Having the 12th Man Fund has given us the ability to do that, so well done to the fans once again!”
