Former Reading trialist Jodi Jones has penned a permanent two-year contract with newly-promoted Notts County.

The winger spent last summer with Paul Ince's side at St George's Park but was not signed on, joining Oxford United instead.

Struggling for game time at the Kassam Stadium, the 25-year-old spent the second half of the season at Meadow Lane.

Playing 18 times, he famously scored a stoppage-time winner to squeeze past Boreham Wood and into the National League play-off final.

Beating Chesterfield on penalties after a thrilling 2-2 draw, the oldest professional football club in the country have returned to the Football League after four years out.

A statement reads: “We, along with our head coach Luke Williams, share our supporters’ appreciation of Jodi’s obvious talent and love for the game.

“His football fanaticism is so apparent in his distinctive playing style and how hard he works for the team. He embodies the type of player and person we want to have at the club and we’re really excited to see him at the peak of his powers once he’s had a full pre-season under his belt.

“After everything Jodi has been through, we’re so pleased we were able to give him the platform to perform last season and the memories of him celebrating against Boreham Wood will live long in everyone’s memory.

“We know how determined Jodi is to progress from here, not only for himself but also his incredibly supportive family, and we’re behind him all the way.”
