Jones Goes On Loan To Cambridge United

Jones Goes On Loan To Cambridge United

Swansea City youngster Chris Jones has gone on loan to Blue Square Premier side Cambridge United until the new year.

Jones last season plyed his trade in the reserve side but was outshone by fellow striker Kerry Morgan. It is not the first time the youngster has gone out on loan, in 2007 the striker went on loan to then Scottish first division side Hamilton Academical only to be recalled soon after linking up with the club. United manager Gary Brabin has welcomed the arrival of the youngster and has indicated he believes that the change of club at this stage of his career will do him the world of good.

Brabin Spoke on the U's official site:

"He's an exciting young forward prospect and he's someone I've watched. I have a good relationship with the management at Swansea and I know they have high expectations of him, and we're lucky enough to get him here on loan until the New Year. He's quick with good feet, he scores goals and he can play as a centre forward or out wide on either flank. Swansea have a real asset on their hands and if he comes here and fulfils his potential, which me and Paul (Carden) will be helping him to do 100%, it will do his career a world of good."


Meanwhile reports from Holland suggest that Dutch trialist Micheal Van Der Heijden has signed a deal with the club.

Playing competitive Blue Square games will be good for his development. He showed promise 2 seasons ago. But sbrjack stated that he did not show his ability last season in the reserves. Has another chance so Good luck to him.

Experience is all that matters at this stage of his career! It will do him better to be out playing competitive games than having a run around in the reserves.

We should loan more of our players to L2 and Blue Square \premier sides instead of team in the Welsh Premier.
