Former King’s Lynn Town loanee Jake Jones is determined to make his mark in the Skill Premier now he has returned to Tamworth.
The skilful wideman impressed during his three-month spell at The Walks raising hopes he could join the Linnets on a permanent basis.
But the 20-year-old insists he only wants to use the form gained from his time in Norfolk as a springboard to succeed at Conference level.
Jones said: “The loan move was good to be fair and I have been enjoying it.
“King’s Lynn are a great club and the staff there have really looked after me – they treated me superbly. They play good football and they have quality players. The fans were fantastic too.
“I just want to play football and got to do that at King’s Lynn. I really can’t speak highly enough of them as a club.”
However, he also told the Tamworth Herald: “But now I am hoping to break back into the starting line-up at Tamworth. I want to test myself at Conference level. That’s why I joined Tamworth.”
The former Walsall youngster scored three goals during his 14 appearances in the Evo-Stik Premier Division – two levels below where his parent club the Lambs ply their trade – to leave Gary Setchell wishing he could bring him back to the Linnets.
Lynn’s boss said: “I’d love to get Jonah back, it’s no secret. He’s obviously going to be involved with Tamworth for the forseeable but if that doesn’t go right for him – I know the lad wants to play every week – maybe we’ll have a chance.”
