Bulls defender joins Shots

Published Add your comment

Defender Darren Jones has rejected a new and improved contract at Hereford in favour of a move to League Two rivals Aldershot.

The 26-year-old, who made 43 appearances last term, had looked likely to pen a new deal at Edgar Street having enjoyed a successful debut campaign following his arrival from Forest Green last summer.

Earlier this month, the Welshman said: "I've had a few messages from the new chairman and while I'm away (on holiday) my agent is in talks. I'll contact the club as soon as I get back, I'm happy to sign a deal as long as it's right for me and my family."

But despite lengthy negotiations over another year with the Bulls it appears a deal could not be reached and chairman David Keyte has revealed Jones has opted to complete a switch to play-off semi-finalists Aldershot.

Keyte told the club's official website: "I think we made a very good offer, a very fair one, but Darren has decided to leave. We wish him the very best of luck for the future."
