Wales C talisman Henry Jones discusses quality of Welsh Premier League
Wales C talisman Henry Jones says spoken of the standard between the National League and Premier League ahead of today’s C clash with England.
The 25-year-old is in the squad this time round after returning to the Welsh Premier League with Bala this season.
Jones played a season with English side AFC Fylde after winning the Player of the Year Award with Bangor City in the previous season.
The former Swansea City academy product said: “There isn’t a lot in the two leagues if I’m overly honest.
“The National League is more direct more physical ball doesn’t hit the floor much but I think the England C side play a different style, they like to play football.
“I would say maybe I know more so what to expect as I played in that league last season but I think the players we have in the team are more than capable of competing against an England side.”
This season, Henry Jones has been on form, with the most assists for a player in the Welsh Premier League. He’s also managed to reach double figures for the Lakesiders upon his return to the top flight of Welsh football.
Club manager Colin Caton has earned credit from Jones for his reintroduction to the league after admiring the player for so long.
His decision making on Henry has allowed Jones to showcase his talent, which has earned him a Wales C call-up.
“I owe a lot of that to Colin Caton he knows what I need as a player he gives me the freedom to go and hurt teams.
“He doesn’t put any restrictions on me defensively which has helped me massively in the attacking sense with goals and assists and chances created.”
Jones was a late arrival having played in Bala’s 2-0 win over Barry Town United on Saturday afternoon.
The creative midfielder is raring to go ahead of the eagerly anticipated match, in a showpiece that celebrates the good of Welsh football.
“I’m very pleased to be called up to the squad and I’m looking forward to getting the job done.
“Representing your country is a big honour and it ranks highly for me.
“It will be special to put Wales shirt on but we need to get the job done putting the shirt on is just the start we are here to beat England.”
