Todd Kane surprises by joining Gibraltar club months after playing in the Championship

Todd Kane surprises by joining Gibraltar club Manchester 1962 FC just months after playing in the EFL Championship with Coventry City.

The 30 year old was released by the Sky Blues this summer after they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Todd Kane made the move to Coventry in August 2021 and played 41 games for the club, scoring 1 goal, while also featuring for Charlton Athletic on loan last season.


Less Than 48 hours after the club announced their historic partnership with The Concussion Legacy Foundation Manchester 62 has today announced the signing of former Chelsea wonder kid, and English Championship standout Todd Kane, to a club record deal in a continued effort to build a formidable squad around newly appointed former Cymru League Manager of the Year, Anthony Limbrick.

The former Nottingham Forrest, QPR, and Coventry City, right back made the decision to sign with Manchester 62 after discussions with Limbrick and club owner Michael Anton Monsour regarding the importance of adding Todd’s experience and leadership to the squad both on and off the pitch as the club fights for a spot in European competition this season, while continuing their historic stance on promoting concussion safety and awareness across the footballing world.

“ I’m really excited to join Manchester 62, not only to be a part of their journey to win trophies, and push for Europe on the pitch, but to be a part of their journey to make a difference off the pitch, as I will be working with, club owner Michael Monsour to help spread awareness and support for an important issue that is very close to my heart.”   –  Todd Kane

“ Todd Kane is a fantastic player and a true professional. Having followed Todd’s career during my time coaching in England, I can say it is an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to work with a player of his caliber. The potential impact we feel that Todd’s experience and leadership can bring to Manchester 62 this season both on and off the pitch is unquestionable.”  –  Manchester 62 Manager Anthony Limbrick

The club who recently lost their first league match in nearly 9 months a streak that began in January of 2023, when the iconic Gibraltar football club, became the first top flight European football club to have all 10 outfield players wear protective headgear in a professional match, has revamped their squad with 10 summer signings including former Crusaders striker Dean Ebbe, former Inverness and Raith Rovers striker Immanuelson Duku, and former Hull City and Linfield Midfielder Ahmed Salam among others.
