Tudur Jones: 'Feels Good To Be Back'

Tudur Jones: 'Feels Good To Be Back'

Owain Tudur Jones has taken his first tentative steps on the road to earning a first team place in Roberto Martinez`s high flying Swansea squad.

Tudur Jones completed 60 minutes of the 1-0 win over AFC Bournemouth in the Reserves yesterday afternoon much to the delight of the player. Swansea took the lead with 10 minutes remaining after a Kristian O Leary shot was deflected into the Visitors goal.

Formerly of Bangor City Jones suffered Knee injury that looked set to threaten his career. In a bid to rescue the talented Welsh International`s career ; Richie Evans and Jones boarded a plane to Colorado in the United States to seek the help of world renowned surgeon Dr Richard Steadman.

Jones spoke after the match about finally securing much vital minutes on the pitch and was very positive and firmly wants to put the injuries that have plagued him over the last 1 and half years behind him.

Caution will be exercised as his last comeback bid last year and he felt no ill effects on his ankle injury.

Jones Told The Evening Post



I feel good. It's nice to be back on a football pitch and it's onwards and upwards from here.I hope this is the end of the road, but I said that last time. When you get a fractured ankle there's not much you can do about it."

Hopefully I can draw a line under it now, get back to enjoying my football and have a successful end of season with Swansea.I think there's another reserve match (at home to Bristol Rovers) next week so it'll be nice to move on and play a full game then."

I want to stop talking about all these injuries and start talking about football.'



Roberto Martinez will be further buoyed with the news that Darren Way also came through the fixture unscathed.
