Kenwyne Jones returns to the club who gave him his first taste of English club football on Saturday aiming to "put one over them again."


Paul Sturrock, former Saints boss and the then Sheffield Wednesday manager, took a 19-year-old Jones to Hillsborough for a brief loan spell in December 2004.

Luggy had been in charge at St Mary's when Jones arrived in the summer of that year.

And Jones seized his chance to shine in League One, with seven goals in as many games during a month-long loan spell.

Unsurprisingly, that helped him quickly establish himself as a firm favourite with the Yorkshire club's fans.

Tomorrow will be the third time Jones has faced his former club in Saints colours.

And having scored twice in his two previous appearances against them - Jones scored the first half winner in the league at Hillsborough last season and again in the return 3-0 success at St Marys - he is hoping to repeat the trick once again on Saturday.

Jones, now 22, remembered: "When I got there I did pretty well for them and helped set them on the road to promotion more or less.

"That was my first time playing in any football league over here and it went well because I had an eagerness to go out and prove myself.

"Hopefully I am still liked up there, I don't know, but it will be nice going back there, to see the stadium and to see the fans again.

"But I will be looking to put one over them again, as I did last season."
