Jones contract confirmed

20 June 2013

City skipper Gary Jones was at the Coral Windows Stadium this Thursday (20 June 2013) to put the finishing touches to his new one-year deal with the Bantams.


Bantams boss Phil Parkinson had revealed last month that Jones was to be offered a new contract with the football club, with the 36 year-old now putting pen to paper on the deal today to complete all the formalities.


After helping to clinch City's promotion into League 1 in May, Jones was offered a new deal by Parkinson along with Jon McLaughlin, Garry Thompson and Kyel Reid in line with the terms of their previous contracts with the club.


The extension options within the contracts of McLaughlin, Thompson and Reid were all in the club's favour, meaning the trio's deals were extended automatically. 


Jones' option in his own contract was in the favour of the player, however, although the midfield maestro has always expressed his desire to stay at the Coral Windows Stadium.


Jones said: "I am raring to go, the manager is raring to go, I think we all can't wait to get started again.


"There are a lot of big clubs in League 1 now and hopefully we can get Valley Parade rocking again next season as it was this year. 


"I have absolutely loved playing my football here, this is a great club with great fans, and I am really looking to the season ahead."


The news of Jones putting pen to paper on his fresh deal comes after team-mate Andrew Davies' decision to do likewise with his own contract extension earlier this month.
