New No2 Jones excited working with Everton squad

New Everton assistant manager Graeme Jones is excited to be working with the current squad.

Jones' appointment was confirmed by manager Roberto Martinez this week.

"It's a fantastic group of players. That's there for everybody to see," Jones told evertontv.

"More than talent, you have to look behind that and you can see the character of the players.

"I won't forget the game at Wigan in October when they were 2-1 down with half an hour to go. The impression from being on the opposite management team was that this group of players aren't going to stop until they get something out of the game. It was such a positive statement.

"Then you come into the club and you hear about the quality of the people not just the quality of the players. That's what's exciting because it is a great platform to start work on."
