Jevons Move Not Footballing Decision!
By: Bill Osborne
PAUL Groves spoke out today about the move of Phil Jevons to Hull City and he made it clear that it was not a footballing decision, which puts paid to the rumours of a disagreement between them both.
"Graham Rodger and I had a meeting with the Chairman on Tuesday." Groves told Mariners Net. "And we stated that Phil was part of our plans, he was in the squad, and we wanted to keep him."
"With the long-term injury to Steve Livingstone and to a lesser extent, the one to Robert Taylor, we have become short in the striker department. Phil was on the bench at Millwall and came on late in the game."
"He always worked hard in training, and was part of our first team squad. That was our stance from the footballing angle."
"The decision was taken purely for financial reasons. Obviously we are disappointed, but we appreciate the logic behind the decision. At the end of the day, everyone has to appreciate that the books need to balance."
"Matters such as this are no longer footballing decisions alone."
