Kenwyne Jones is the cover star of Matchday for the penultimate home game of the 2014/15 season.

As well as discussing his career to date, the targetman discusses his plans for the future.

“I had trials at Middlesbrough and Glasgow Rangers a couple of times before I got a move to England, but the time wasn’t right for anything to be done,” he tells Matchday.

“In 2004 Paul Sturrock signed me at Southampton, which is where the story continued.

“When he left and went to Sheffield Wednesday, I went there on loan and scored seven in seven.

“At the time I was 19 and a bit scrawnier, but it was my first experience in league football, and I have fond memories of it because that’s where I first went and did well.

“It pushed them in the right direction and it was special to be part of such a big club even for a short time.

“Sometimes I think of it as my life going in full circle because I started on the south coast and now at this point 11 years later I am back here.

“I also went to Stoke on loan and I ended up signing for them a few years after, so it’s a bit funny but that’s the way life goes and that’s the way this football game goes, so you have to sit and wait and see what’s going to unfold.”

As always, the 100 page issue also includes lots more, including notes from Tommy Elphick, Eddie Howe and Jeff Mostyn.

Adam Smith reminisces on his school days, senior analyst Garvan Stewart speaks in the final word and there are also action images from Ipswich Town, Brighton & Hove Albion and Reading.
