Jones Recalled By Birmingham

12 December 2015

ALEX Jones has played his last game for the Mariners and will return to his parent club Birmingham City after today's FA Trophy tie against Solihull Moors.

Town boss Paul Hurst was keen to extend the loan of the 21-year old, but City have said that they would like the striker to return to St Andrews. 

Since his arrival, Alex has been a regular in the Town side, making six appearances for the club.  

Speaking at the post match press conference, Paul Hurst said: "I'd come to the conclusion that I would have liked Alex to have stopped here.

"But I think Gary's (Rowett) had some injuries over there. I'm not saying Alex is going to go into the first team, that's for them to look at, but it's certainly a busy period coming up.

"He's been a credit to himself, shown a really good attitude towards coming here, he's done a lot of extra work in the gym and on the training pitch, so I'm really thankful firstly to Birmingham for letting him come, and to Alex for coming and helping us."

This is what the player tweeted after the game.
