West Brom fullback Jones proud of Crewe grounding

West Bromwich Albion fullback Billy Jones is proud of his Crewe Alexandra background.

Jones has been reflecting on his time at Gresty Road.

"One of the reasons why you stay loyal to Crewe is because of their history," Jones told the Birmingham Mail.

"I had chances to move on," he revealed. "So did other lads who had offers from Premier League clubs to do their Youth Training Schemes and so on.

"But the appeal with Crewe was that you believed that if you stayed there you would play first-team football early, which is great because it's better than reserve football."
