Gainsborough Trinity manager Steve Housham has responded to comments made by Boston United boss Graham Drury over his approach for Pilgrims striker Mark Jones.
The Blues boss is able to speak with Jones from tomorrow, following a seven-day approach, but Drury is keen to keep hold of the striker, who has scored 14 goals for the Pilgrims this season.
"If it's about money he'll go, there's no doubt about that because they'll (Gainsborough) double his wages," said Drury.
"The decision is Mark's, but I'll try and keep him at the

football club. It's going to be down to what Mark Jones wants at the end

of the day.
"Just look around the place (Boston). When you walk into the car

park you can see it's a proper football club, at Gainsborough there are

300 or 400 (fans). We double that, or can treble it if we're on a

winning run."
Housham, though, has hit back, claiming that if Jones does end up at the Northolme it will be for footballing reasons.
"It has been said that if he decided to join Trinity it would not be for footballing reasons," said Housham.

"But I think it would be for footballing reasons. He would be coming to a

very ambitious football club who have plans to progress.
"We are always looking to strengthen, but we will not break any budget

barriers. So any move to Gainsborough would not just be about money,

it would be about coming to a club who's ambitions are high."
