Dennis Greene: I would not have let Mark Jones leave Boston United
Boston United boss Dennis Greene has confirmed he tried to bring Mark Jones back to the club before his switch from Gainsborough Trinity to Spalding United.
Jones starred for the Pilgrims last season with 14 goals before his controversial transfer to Trinity in January.
The former Corby striker was wooed by the offer of an 18-month contract by the Blues, then being bankrolled by former chairman Peter Swann.
However, Jones has found goals hard to come by at the Northolme and following the departure of Swann, Trinity were content to let one of their top earners leave.

Jones was linked with a move to League Two high-flyers Mansfield, but has joined big-spending Spalding of the United Counties League.
However, had Greene had his way, Jones would have returned to Boston.
“He’s a player I’ve always rated highly,” said Greene.
“If I’d been at the club at the time, I wouldn’t have let him leave in the first place.
“I did try and sign him, but he had already agreed to go to Spalding so that was that.”
