Notts County Manager Luke Williams Praises Jodi Jones as Permanent Contract Offered


Notts County has announced that they have offered a permanent contract to winger Jodi Jones, who was on loan from Oxford United last season. Jones played a key role in the Magpies’ promotion back to the English Football League via the National League play-offs.

He scored a dramatic winner in the semi-final against Boreham Wood and converted a penalty in the shoot-out victory over Chesterfield at Wembley.

Jones, 25, joined Oxford United last summer after leaving Coventry City. He had suffered three consecutive ACL injuries that hampered his progress while at Coventry City. 

He made only a few appearances for Oxford United before joining Notts County on loan in January. He quickly became a fan favourite at Meadow Lane, making 18 appearances and scoring three goals.

Notts County manager Luke Williams praised Jones for his contribution and expressed his desire to keep him at the club. “We would love to keep Jodi, who has experienced five seasons’ worth of drama in the space of one campaign,” he told the official club website. 

“He became a Notts County hero by scoring a play-off winner and showed great composure to slot home his penalty at Wembley.”

Jones is one of seven players who have been offered new contracts by Notts County. The others are Sam Slocombe, Connell Rawlinson, Jim O’Brien, Kyle Cameron, Aaron Nemane and Ruben Rodrigues. The club has released Ed Francis, Frank Vincent and Kairo Mitchell.

Notts County is looking forward to their return to the Football League after a four-year absence. They finished second in the National League behind Wrexham and secured their promotion through the play-offs.

They will be hoping to build on their success next season and challenge for higher places in League Two.

Jodi Jones is a class act and a player who, in the right team, can make them promotion worthy. He’s direct, skillful and the type of player that fans naturally get behind because he’s a good player. I really hope he stays at Notts.

Jodi Jones has shown time and time again that he’s a class act on the pitch. His directness and skill make him a real asset to any team, and in the right setup he could be the key to promotion. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he stays at Notts.

Jodi Jones is an intelligent footballer who seems to be very switched on whenever he's on the pitch. I had the pleasure of watching him play in the playoff final on TV, and he was nothing short of a game-changer. He's very confident in his ability and natural on the ball, traits that make him stand out from other attackers. Jones has a habit of taking on defenders and making things happen, and his ability to create chances out of nothing is a testament to his footballing intelligence. When he gets going, he's very exciting to watch and has a knack for lighting up the pitch. It's clear to see why he's rated as one of the brightest talents in the game today. Jones has a bright future ahead of him, and I'm looking forward to seeing him continue to shine in the years to come.
