James Jones Signs Pro

21 May 2014

Creative midfielder latest youngster to sign professional terms

Crewe Alexandra is delighted to announce that scholar James Jones has signed his first professional contract with the club. The 18-year-old from Winsford has followed his fellow Academy graduates Perry Ng, Fraser Murdoch and first year scholar George Cooper by signing professional terms with the club.

James has signed a two-year contract with an option for a third.

Jones, who has been at the Football Club from the age of seven, became a key figure for the Under-18s, the Youth Team and the Under-21s last season. He featured in the Development squad’s 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road as Crewe lifted the U-21 Professional Development League Two Cup for the first time.

He also appeared in the Under-18 final as Crewe sadly lost on a penalty shoot-out to Huddersfield Town after a thrilling 3-3 draw. He also appeared in pre-season for the first-team.

The skilful midfielder has also shown his leadership qualities when captaining the Youth Team and Under-18s. The creative playmaker has an outstanding range of passing and an eye for goal. He is also a dead-ball specialist at both free-kicks and penalties.

Like his young team-mates, James has continued his conditioning work at the Training Ground in readiness for the pre-season and training with the first-team squad.
