NO player is safe and every member of the squad has to fight for their place. That is the stark warning of Haverfordwest County manager Wayne Jones as the side begin to build momentum with three wins on the trot.

The Bluebirds followed up a must-win league encounter against high-flying Flint Town United in the Cymru Premier with a win over Undy Athletic in the MG Nathaniel Cup and most recently Jones’ men defeated Cymru North outfit Airbus UK Broughton in the third round of the Welsh Cup.

The trio of wins come after a torrid start to the season for Haverfordwest with the Bluebirds having only won one in six.

Now that momentum is building, manager Jones wants to hammer home the fact that good performances will be rewarded.

“It is really important that the players that come in they keep their shirts,” said Jones.

“I have always been fair and honest with them and if you earned the right and you have done it well you keep your shirt.

“No player is any different whether that be goalkeeper or striker.”

One of the players working to earn a right for the shirt is Mason Jones-Thomas, who was left out of the starting-11 versus Flint, however turned in a man-of-match performance the following game against Undy.

Jones praised Thomas and the rest of the players that filled in versus JD Cymru South side Undy Athletic, but said in order for them to get in the team regularly they need to produce over ninety minutes.

“It is all good coming on as a sub and doing it for 20, 30 minutes,” continued Jones, “but doing it for 90 minutes that is the challenge we give them.

“I think if they keep doing that then they will get recognised but it is about doing it constantly.

“There is no point doing it one in two or one in three and periods when they are on the pitch for half an hour and then go missing for ten minutes and coming back and showing glimpses. You want them to be a constant thorn in the opposition side and I felt they done that really well against Undy.”

After the departure of Corey Shepherd and a knee injury sustained to Henry Jones against Flint, Wayne Jones has said there is a potential for more signings in the upcoming weeks.

“With the small squad we have and the injuries we sustained from the Flint game it is a case of utilising the squad and it (the cups) have come at the right time,” said Jones.

“It gives extra recovery time for those guys to get over their injuries and it has given boys that need game time.

“Trust me when I say we have a really really bare squad right now. We have players playing through injuries. Scotcher came back a little earlier than we would have liked. Some of them are walking wounded and they are really putting their bodies on the line at the moment.

“Me and the chairman are having nightly meetings to try get players in over the coming weeks. That is work in progress. Here and now we have what we have and we are working well.”
