Boss: "There Are No Hard Feelings From My Side Over Jordan Departure"

18 June 2019

Boss on Bowery loss to the MK Dons.

Jordan Bowery goes with the club’s best wishes after recently completing a move to MK Dons. The former Aston Villa and Chesterfield forward has joined the newly promoted Dons after rejecting the chance to extend his stay at Gresty Road after two and half seasons.

The 27-year-old Nottingham-born forward scored 22 goal in 99 games for the Railwaymen in all competitions and boss David Artell was keen to keep him this summer.

Bowery wanted to test himself again in League One and has joined Paul Tisdale’s side following their promotion to League One.

Artell says there are no feelings from his side of things.

He told the club’s official website: “We wanted to keep him because he is a good player and that is why he has got a move to MK Dons.

“He has done terrific and I really do wish him all the best. I need to speak to him and his agent and I will do to reiterate that. There are certainly no hard feelings from my point of view.

“I have got no problem with a player who is out of contract aiming to play his trade at a higher level. Jordan did well for us when he was here.

“He is a good kid, has a good heart and I wish him every success there.”
