Ex-Daggers winger Jones shines on first outing for Sky Blues

Jodi Jones only left Dagenham & Redbridge on Friday, but the teenager is already making an impact at new club Coventry City after sparkling on his debut for the Sky Blues’ under-21 side last night (Monday).

The winger has moved to City on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent move in the summer and started for the under-21s away to Bristol City in their Professional Development League Two North clash.

With eight minutes on the clock, Jones, who came through the academy at Daggers, endeared himself to his new fans with his first Coventry goal after latching on to a lovely, raking ball from defence.

The nippy youngster then grabbed an assist nine minutes into the second half when he weaved his way to the byline before cutting the ball back for team mate George Thomas to tap home.

Jones then scored for the second time in the 57th minute, receiving the ball on the edge of the area before turning his man and firing low into the corner, much to the approval of senior manager Tony Mowbray who was watching on.

The forward was replaced two minutes later by Bassala Sambou, who went on to score the final goal in a 4-0 rout for Coventry.

In his final weeks at Victoria Road, Jones struggled for game time, but after making an immediate impact for the Sky Blues, there will certainly be a few questions among Daggers fans.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
