Coventry City have signed goalkeeper Clayton Ince from Crewe Alexandra.Coventry City have followed the arrival of James Scowcroft with the signing of goalkeeper Clayton Ince from Crewe Alexandra.
The Trinidad & Tobago international has signed a two-year contract with The Sky Blues after rejecting the offer of a new deal with The Railwaymen.
The 32-year-old is sure to provide plenty of experience to Micky Adams's squad next season and contest the number one jersey with youngster Luke Steele.
The Caribbean stopper revealed that it was difficult to end his six-year spell with Dario Gradi's side, but felt a move to the Ricoh Arena was too good to pass up.
"It was a big upheaval to be leaving Gresty Road, but it's a bigger challenge and I want to test myself at a high level, so coming to Coventry is a good challenge for me and I hope I live up to it," Ince told Coventry's official website.
"I'm very excited to be here, it's a new challenge and I just can't wait to get out there and do the business on the pitch."
Meanwhile, Adams's search for new faces has prompted him to hand trials to former Derby County midfielder Darryl Powell, former Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Chris Day and ex-Brighton & Hove Albion defender Paul Watson.
The only player left out of contract at the club is veteran defender Steve Staunton, who annoyed Adams by failing to show for the start of pre-season training.
The former Republic of Ireland international has been linked with a move to League One side Walsall, but Adams is keen to keep the 36-year-old with The Sky Blues.
"I am very disappointed Stan has not turned in and I would like to find out the reason why," Adams said.
"I will be talking to him as soon as possible to make my feelings known in strong terms."
