AFC Telford: Midfield trio weighing up options ahead of new season

Vanarama National League North side AFC Telford may need to look for a new set of midfield players after a trio are considering their options, according to the Shropshire Star.

Jack Rea, Eddie Jones and Jon Royle are all considering whether to stay at the Shropshire side after escaping relegation by seven points last season.

Rea joined the Bucks in January 2015 but the longest-serving member of Rob Smith’s side could be departing after a two-and-a-half year spell with the Club.

The midfielder made 33 appearances last season and has been a key player since signing under former boss Steve Kittrick.

Jones is another who is unsure whether his future remains with Telford, with his early impressive performances catching a number of eyes. The 25-year-old scored twice from midfield in his spell with the Bucks, and both Rea and Jones have begun talks with the Club’s management.

Former Wrexham midfielder Royle is the third musketeer in the midfield trio, with his contract negotiations being held-up due to his holiday.

Assistant Manager Larry Chambers has admitted, however, that the Bucks are hopeful of adding a few new players to the squad roster soon.

“It’s been a hard slog so far and I can see it continuing,” he said to the Shropshire Star.

“We’ve met a lot of players and there are still players to meet with. It’s tough because teams are after the same players.”
