The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FOURTH ROUND -

NEW Hartle­pool man­ager Dave Jones says he tried to sign striker Nathan Thomas while in charge at Sh­effield Wed­nes­day.

Last week­end, Thomas, 22, made a wel­come re­turn af­ter be­ing side­lined for al­most three months with a groin in­jury. Jones is ex­cited about what he will bring to Pools.

“I tried to sign him at Wed­nes­day, but I left the week we were ready to sign him,” Jones said.

“He’s got good abil­ity and, while he was very raw, I saw some­thing I felt we could build on.

“He’s come here and scored goals and if I see that form, I’ll be more than happy.”
