Deep­ing striker is go­ing back to Crewe

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sports -

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.
