“Proud of the lads and the progress we’ve made as a team this season.” Sheaf wrote on Instagram.
“Couldn’t have done it without the fantastic support of the SBA 👏🏻💙.
“Not an ideal ending for me personally but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and I’ll be ready for next season.
“Delighted to pick up @ccfcfamilyzone player of the season!
“Time to reflect and recharge so we can go again, better and stronger 💪🏻.”
Sheaf joined the Sky Blues permanently last summer after leaving Arsenal having previously been on loan with Coventry during the 2020/21 season.
Quiz: Which club did Coventry City sign these 24 players from in the 1990s?
Sheaf was a regular in his first permanent year as a Sky Blues player, with the midfielder featuring 35 times for the club as Coventry achieved a 12th place finish in the Championship.
The 24-year-old scored twice and registered two assists in those matches, too.
Ben Sheaf is right to be proud of his teammates after the season he and they both had.
Coventry were right up there all season, and it was only in the final few weeks of the season that their play-off hopes faded away.
They can come back stronger next campaign, but that will depend on keeping hold of a number of key players this summer.
All things considered though, 2021/22 was a solid year for the Sky Blues and they will certainly hope they can remain in the Championship’s top half in 22/23.
