Deeping striker is going back to Crewe
DEEPING striker Mark Jones has been offered the chance to return to Crewe Alexandra.
The Leaguetwo club want Jones to appear in a reserve team game before they consider whether to make a move for him.
The 24-goal Rangers hitman spent a week on trial with ‘The Alex’ earlier in the season. he is also attracting plenty of other interest with UCL Premier Division rivals King’s Lynn slapping in a seven-day approach.
Deeping bosstuncay Korkmaz said: “Mark has got the opportunity to go back up to Crewe and have a game in their reserves.
“We wish him every success and would love to see him move on to such a high level.
“There is lots of other interest too but Mark is obviously focusing on the chance at Crewe first and foremost.”
Jones will play for Deeping tomorrow when they visit Long Buckby in the second round of the UCL League Cup.
Buckby’s only defeats this season have come in the FA Cup and FA Vase and Rangers have twice come up just short against them in Premier Division clashes
Korkmaz added: “I felt we could have got something out of both games so hopefully we can put in another good performance in the cup and make it through.”
A GOOD afternoon and an even better night is in store for Holbeach tomorrow.
Thetigers should have no trouble in seeing off struggling Irchester before heading to Leeds for what boss John Chand has dubbed a ‘lavish’ Christmas party.
Any sort of positive result over at Alfred Street will ensure Holbeach tuck into their turkey in second place in the UCL Premier Division standings.
Chand said: “The lads deserve a good night out because they’ve been so great to work with and have exceeded everybody’s expectations so far,” Arguably an even bigger achievement is that Blackstones - a club who reportedly possess the tiniest of budgets - will spend Christmas in a minimum of fifth place. They go to Newport Pagnell tomorrow.
Both local teams are on the road in Division One. Bourne go to Buckingham while Huntingdon head for Wellingborough to take on Whitworth.
