Surely nobody can call Jarred's loyalty and integrity to the club into question. Since his arrival he has been nothing but fantastic for Town on and off the pitch. He has put his hand up and played while injured and stuck by us when he has had other offers elsewhere.
It's time to cut the lad some slack, he is fairly newly married and will probably want to start a family. Trying to plan for the future when the main source of income is a professional sportsmans wage must be a nightmare when at any given moment an injury could mean career over, then who pays the mortgage? I think it's even hard to get credit if your main source of income is as a sportsman.
It is great news for the club if he has got a well paid local job and signed a long term contract, and if the lad has to miss a couple off matches then it's not the end of the world once you look at the bigger picture.
He won't be one of our development employees anymore so it also opens the door to get another top class player in that might otherwise be out of our reach.
Going by others who I know who have the same job as Jarred I don't think it's too difficult to get a shift swap as they never seem to be at work!
