Devils snatch Jones from Owls

Crawley have signed midfielder Mike Jones from Sheffield

Wednesday for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract.

The 25-year-old links up again with Town boss Richie Barker, who

he also played under at Bury.

Jones told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted to be

here. Crawley are a progressive club who have got used to success

over the past couple of years and this is a great challenge for me

at this stage of my career.

“I know Richie well, the way he works and the way he likes his

teams to play and I’m looking forward to showing the Crawley fans

what I can do.”

Barker added: “Mike is a player I know extremely well and I’m

delighted to have him on board.

“He’s versatile in so much that he can play in central midfield

or on the right-hand side so he will bring competition for places

in an important area of the pitch. He is a fantastic pro and a very

skillful individual and I’m sure he is going to be very popular

with our supporters.”
