Chelmsford City Football Club are delighted to announce that Forward Callum Jones has penned a new deal to extend his stay with the Clarets into the 2023/24 Season!
The 23-Year-Old played an integral role in Robbie Simpson’s side last season scoring 9 goals in 35 Games. Since joining the Clarets in April 2021 having left Colchester United, Jones has made an impression on the squad and despite having a period sidelined he has proven himself to be a key member of this Clarets side.
Manager Robbie Simpson spoke on Callum Jones staying at the club “I thought it was going to be one of those seasons again for Jonesy where he picked up an injury and misses a large part. To come back the way that he did and have the impact that he did just shows what a great personality he has, the resilience that he has shown over the last two seasons has been truly remarkable.”
“His strength and athleticism, his all round game particularly towards the back end of the season, has been really impactful on how well we did and where we finished in the league. Considering it was his first full season, that wasn’t even a full season [because of the injury sustained earlier in the season] in mens football because of his injury the season before, there is still so much to come from him and I think he is a really really exciting player and there’s no doubt in my mind that he will be a top, top player at this level.”
“We are really looking forward to getting him back next season and helping him develop and reach his potential”
We look forward to seeing Callum Jones in a Claret shirt for the start of the 2023/24 Season!
