Experienced centre back added to squad!
Central defender Luke Jones has joined the club, extending the defensive options available to Andy Morrell ahead of this weekends home clash with FC United of Manchester.
Jones, who has been training with the club for a few weeks, completed the full 90 minutes for our U21 side last Saturday, proving his fitness after an unfortunate time with injuries over the past 2 years.
Originally a youth player at Blackburn Rovers, 29 year old Jones can count the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Mansfield Town, Kidderminster Harriers, and Stevenage as former clubs.
Commenting on Jones, Andy Morrell said ""We've been looking to get Luke in for a while, as he is something different to what we have got. He'll be good in terms of his experience at the back, he is a leader and a talker."
