Walters has no regrets
Former Coventry winger Dexter Walters says he does not regret his move to the Sky Blues and says the experience was a great “learning curve”.
Walters was released by the Championship club at the end of last season, just two years after he joined them from Tamworth.
Walters made just one appearance for Coventry, but has now rejoined the Lambs again following his exit from the Sky Blues.
And speaking about his time at the club, the flying winger only has good memories.
“Coventry was 100 per cent a great experience,” he said.
“I certainly don’t have anything negative to say about them.”

Panzo a wanted man
Dijon are closing in on Coventry City -linked defender Jonathan Panzo.
The Sky Blues were linked with a move for the Monaco centre-back early in the transfer window with Mark Robins reportedly enquiring about his availability.
Talks never progressed, but it seems 19-year-old Panzo could indeed be on the move this summer.
According to RMC Sport, Dijon are eyeing a move, entering negotiations for Panzo to replace the outgoing Nayef Aguerd, who joined Rennes.
Dijon can offer the English defender the chance to continue playing top-flight football in France, though they will be charged €2m, according to the report.

Rivals to appeal deduction
Coventry City ‘s Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed plans to appeal a 12-point deduction after being found guilty of breaching the EFL’s Profitability and Sustainability rules.
The Owls were hit with the sanction over the sale of Hillsborough to owner Dejphon Chansiri in an attempt to stay within FFP rules.
The sale helped Wednesday record a pre-tax profit of £2.5m for 2017/18 and was included in 2018 accounts.
But the equity was not transferred until a year later, which led to the charge in November 2019, with the EFL recently confirming the Owls will start the 2020/21 Championship season on -12 points after being found guilty by an independent disciplinary commission (IDC).
