Toby Jones misses end of season through ankle injury

By Geraint Roberts

Toby Jones will miss the rest of the season through injury after being forced off last Friday night.

Toby was substituted just before the first half whistle on Friday night against Cefn Druids due to injury, which has now been confirmed as a broken ankle.

Assistant manager Mark Cowan said it's a huge disappointment that we won't have Toby for the fight.

"It's a huge disappointment, and I feel for the lad, he's an important player for us and given the position we are in it's a huge blow."

"These lads are part-time, they work and need better protection from those that make the laws, and I think those tackles need to be reviewed."

Toby was replaced by January signing Sameron Dool against Cefn Druids, and Dool had a big impact on the game, scoring the equaliser in the second half.

“Sameron is adjusting to the step up from the Huws Gray Alliance very well. He was disappointed to have been left out of the starting line-up against Llanelli and Druids but hasn’t done his chances for starting against Aberystwyth next week any harm.”

“He’s a technically gifted player and he’s young and adapting to the physicality of the Welsh Premier League which he is doing well.” Said Mark Cowan

The management team will undoubtedly look at all options to deal with Toby’s injury, including looking at this month’s loan market.

“We are looking into it. The management team have been discussing it and weighing up our options with only 12/13 fit senior players available to us. We are having to look towards the U19s squad who Mark Orme obviously knows very well and Telor, Osian and Dafydd have stepped up and done well.”

“They just perhaps lack the experience we need going forward but again these are the variables we are looking at. Future injuries and suspensions are another factor we’re planning for so a loan move is certainly in our thoughts as a management team at the moment.”

The fight for safety continues on the 22nd of March as we host Aberystwyth at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, and Llandudno will be looking to continue their Welsh Premier League form at home.
