Former Crewe & Exeter Defender Billy Jones Is Set To Sign Later Today
Former Crewe and Exeter left back Billy Jones is set to sign for Cheltenham Town later today.
Billy, 29, is due at the Abbey Business Stadium this morning to meet Mark Yates and put pen to paper on a deal which will see him become the club's second signing of the summer.
The experienced left back started his career with Leyton Orient's youth system and went on to make his debut in the 2000-01 campaign. He signed a full contract in the summer of 2001 and went on to make over 90 appearances for the club before moving on to Kidderminster Harriers.
He made just a handful of appearances before joining Exeter City and making nearly 100 appearances during his two seasons with the club. He then moved to Crewe for a reported £65,000 deal on a three year contract. He made over 80 appearances for the Railwaymen before moving back to Exeter City for a second spell in npower League One. Over 50 appearances in two seasons for the Grecians finally led to the defender leaving St. James' Park this summer.
Billy should sign a contract later today and an interview with the left back will be available here on www.ctfc.com with the extended video interview on Robins Player.
