Steve 'the divine ponytail' Jones has signed for Hornchurch. Bit of a far cry from Bristol City. Was hoping we might of signed him up!

Why would we want someone of his age?

I thought the new season we would go for young talent that we would be able to build into a strong, talented team with a future.... Hang on, I'm looking at last seasons resume...Bugger!!!

But seriously, I thought that is what all the changes were about last season. Start building a team for the future.

I think you'll find the word 'money' relevant here, and also the chance to gain his coaching badges.

By his own admission he was one of the higher paid players at Bristol City so I reckon Hornchurch must be paying him a fair whack. Had a few problems with fitness last season as well. I think it was the offer of the coaching position that swung it for him - he probably feels that he only has a few more years left playing.
