We’ve got two wings and a prayer, says Boston United striker Jones

Mark Jones admits he is enjoying Boston United’s recruitment policy.

Manager Dennis Greene began the summer looking for a left-sided winger who could complement the pace and guile of Kaine Felix on the opposite flank.

And after bringing Jay Rollins into the squad the Pilgrims now have those two, as well as Jamie McGhee and Jake Sheridan, who can offer strong service to the strikers.

“It makes my life a hell of a lot easier when you’ve got quick wingers who can get past the full back,” Jones said.

“It’s just that little bit of movement that we’ve got to make and I’m sure one of us will put the ball away if it comes to us.

“We all have faith in what the gaffer’s doing and who he brings in.

“Jay’s looking sharp and he’s getting crosses in the box.”

Jones was speaking after last Wednesday’s 4-1 pre-season victory over a young Nottingham Forest side.

It took just 38 seconds for the forward to get off the mark, meeting Felix’s low cross and forcing his effort beyond Tim Erlandsson.

“I’m happy to get back on the scoresheet,” the forward continued.

“Obviously, it’s a good to get the goals in pre-season and get started early.

“The sharpness is getting there and I’m being put through my paces in pre-season.”
