Paul Jones signs for Wednesday

6 August 2019

The Owls have signed experienced goalkeeper Paul Jones on a free transfer.

Jones has been handed squad number 36 and is eligible for Saturday’s Championship clash with Barnsley at Hillsborough.

The 33-year-old has posted over 350 appearances for a raft of clubs in a near 15-year career to date.

Jones has represented Leyton Orient, Exeter, Peterborough, Crawley, Portsmouth, Norwich and more recently Fleetwood.

The shot-stopper has the distinction of being the first goalkeeper to save a penalty at the new Wembley Stadium whilst playing for Exeter in the Conference play-off final of 2007.

The Maidstone product told swfc.co.uk: “This is a huge football club and I am really pleased to sign.

“I’ve come in as number three with Joe picking up an injury in pre-season and I know there’s a huge amount of hard work ahead.

“I’ve been here for a few days training with the club. It seems a great place to be with a really positive group so I’m really looking forward to being here.

“I’ve got a lot of experience but I’m still reasonably young in goalkeeping terms.

“Things can change very quickly in football, we’ve seen that with Westy’s red card at the weekend and Joe’s injury so you have to be fit, sharp and focused and ready to step up.”
