Ainsley Offered New Deal
Ainsley Offered New Deal
Friday, 25th Nov 2011 10:30

Blues boss Paul Jewell has revealed that defender Jack Ainsley has been offered a new contract taking him up to the end of the 2012/13 season. The 21-year-old, whose current terms are up at the end of the year, has made two starts for the Blues this season, the most recent in the 7-1 hammering at Peterborough.

Jewell confirmed that there is an extension on the table for the Felixstowe-based youngster: “We’ve offered Jack a new contract until the end of the following season.”

Meanwhile, midfielder Jamie Griffiths is set to meet with Jewell regarding his Town future, having recently returned from a two-month loan spell at Plymouth: “I’ve told Jamie I’ll have a chat with him.

“He got sent off [in his final game for Plymouth] and they sent him back. I’m going to speak to him later in the week because his contract is up at Christmas time and we’ll see where we’ll go.”

That is an odd one, he looks well short of the required standard and at 21 should really have pushed on by now.

Clutching at straws?!?!

Ainsley is no centre back, so I guess Jewell must consider him a right back. But then why bring in teenager Wabara to cover Edwards in that position? If Ainsley is not up to being backup at the age of 21, when will he be? Bizarre.

Maybe interest from other clubs so would increase potential value??? Not sure about this one, much preferred Troy Brown has to be said!

I agree with most people that Ainsley falls short, so surprised at this.

As for Griffiths, he'll be gone surely?

Another great decision by P.J not lets hope he enjoys playing for the next manager.

To be fair he's mainly being judged based on the 7-1 game, and everyone played a shocker in that. Perhaps he's done well in training? Who knows.

Maybe comes under the.. Still has potential category.. And longer contract, more cash when sold.. Gotta be better than goin on a free.... Or maybe PJ can see he's gonna play a part at some stage soon.

I agree with the commetn "he's mainly being judged on the 7-1 game". Prior to that, Jack had played in a handful of Carling cup games, and by all accounts acquitted himself very well, being one of the better players on the pitch according to many reports.
I think half the trouble has been his adaptability, as although he is 21, he's played only a couple of seasons in any one position, (striker, winger, full back, centre back) so is perhaps immature when it comes to the tactical knowledge required for any particular position?
I would think a few months out on loan are in store.

Maybe Jewell is actually looking towards the future as he's stated....because I think the lad would do alright in League One ;)...........just kidding, well, hopefully..
