King's Lynn Town agree a new deal with former Ipswich Town youth player

King's Lynn Town have the secured the services of another player for next season.

The Linnets have agreed a deal with defender Aaron Jones who has committed his future to the club for another campaign.

A delighted Jones, who was on the books of Ipswich Town as a youngster, said: "The club has been moving in the right direction for the last couple of years now and I just wanted to get it done.

"Since the Gaffer (Ian Culverhouse) came back it has just snowballed really and it was a no-brainer for me to sign again.

"They are a great bunch of lads at Lynn and I've loved every minute of my time at the club.

"There's some real talent in the squad and there's also a really good culture in the changing room."

Jones spent ten years at Portman Road, the last two as an apprentice with the Tractorboys, where he featured in their reserve team as a right-back.

The Yarmouth-born full back joined the Linnets in 2018 after a brief playing stint in the United States, where he represented Philidelphia Union in the MLS before being loaned out to Bethlehem Steel.

With a degree in economics behind him and, on his return to the UK, the 26-year-old played for Harlow Town before making the switch to The Walks.

Jones has made 71 appearances for the Linnets (13 as substitute), scoring two goals.

Lynn director of football Robbie Back said: "It goes without saying that Ian (Culverhouse), Paul (Bastock) and myself are delighted that Aaron has agreed to return to the football club.

"He is a great asset for us and we are all looking forward to working with him again when we can.

"As I said last week these are very unusual times for everyone, not least football clubs and in particular at The Walks, where we still find ourselves waiting for answers from the National League.

"However we are all of the opinion that we have to make plans for next season and that is why we felt it was important that we got Aaron on board and ready to go when the time arrives."
