JONES: I’M A FAN OF THOMAS
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.”
