Harrogate Town boss Simon Weaver is hoping that Sam Jones “proves a point” during his loan spell at York City.
The 28-year-old attacker has made just two starts for the Wetherby Road outfit since arriving from Shrewsbury last summer and will see out the rest of 2019/20 in National League North with the Minstermen.
Jones has already been out on loan to Town’s National League rivals Solihull Moors this term, but is yet to even be selected by Weaver in a match-day squad since his return in early January.
And, with a re-call seemingly not on the cards, the Harrogare boss was keen for his player to go out and get games elsewhere.
“It’s a good move for Sam because he needs games of football and the chance to prove himself,” Weaver said.
“He’s got great ability and pedigree and he is hungry to play.”
