CRAIG Jones has completed his move from Westfields to Hereford United.

The attacking midfielder, who made 11 appearances at Edgar Street during his first stint at the club, including an appearance at Portsmouth in the League Cup, will be joining the Bulls until the end of the season.

The Hereford Times first broke the news about the move last night and Hereford United have confirmed today that the deal has gone through.

“There's a few people who might think I wasn't good enough last time round, but it would be great to prove them wrong," Jones told the club’s official website.

"I've put my head down since being released, it was disappointing, but I made the decision to work hard and I've had three good season's at Westfields."

Hereford United manager Martin Foyle added that Jones will not be just warming the bench.

"We've had an eye on Craig for a while, and his name was mentioned a lot by supporters who have been recommending players to us,” said Foyle.

"The feedback from the fans helped us make up our minds to give him a chance again.

"I've bought him in now until the end of the season to give him a chance to prove himself in competitive football.

“He won't just be sat on the bench, I don't want to just look at him in training, I need to see how he can compete in this league.

"Some people say he didn't get a decent chance last time around, now it's his chance to prove some people wrong.

"We've had a look at him in training, he's got a good left foot, a good footballing brain.

“It's up to him now to show he's good enough."

Jones will be wearing the number 20 shirt at Hereford.

The Hereford Times understands that the Bulls are also looking at Westfields defender Joel Edwards.

The full back is currently injured but will also be invited to train with United once fit.
