Career[edit]

Born in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear,[2] Jones played for the Hartlepool United youth system in their under-11 to under-16 teams.[3] After being released by the club he joined Chester-le-Street Town during the 2002–03 season before returning to Hartlepool in July 2005.[3][4] He made his first team debut after starting in a 1–0 defeat to Yeovil Town on 2 September and in a 1–0 defeat at Scunthorpe United in the Football League Trophy on 18 October he conceded a penalty kick that was scored after being adjudged to have handled the ball, before being substituted in the 84th minute with a suspected calf injury.[5][6] He finished the 2005–06 season with two appearances and was rewarded with a new contract in June 2006.[3][7] Jones failed to make any appearances during the 2006–07 season and the club announced that he would be released when his contract expired on 30 June 2007.[8][9]

He went on trial with Conference Premier team York City in July 2007 and after impressing he signed for the club on a one-year contract on 7 August.[10][11] Jones made his debut in York's opening game of the 2007–08 season, a 2–1 defeat to Cambridge United on 11 August.[12] He was described by Steve Carroll of The Press as looking "out of depth" in the team's next game, a 4–3 defeat at Burton Albion on 14 August,[13][14] which was to be his final appearance for York.[15] He suffered a suspected fractured cheekbone after accidentally clashing with Chris Beardsley during a training session in September.[16]

He joined Northern Premier League Premier Division team Gateshead on an initial one month loan in November 2007.[17] The loan was extended in January 2008 and after being released by York on 31 January he joined Gateshead permanently.[18][19][20] Jones made a total of 95 appearances in all competitions for Gateshead, scoring 5 goals, before his release on 4 May 2011.[21]

Jones signed for Blyth Spartans on 29 June 2011,[22] making his competitive debut on 27 August in a 0–2 defeat at Gainsborough Trinity.[23] Jones left Blyth on 4 November 2011[24] and subsequently signed for Darlington 1883. After less than a month at Darlington, Jones signed for fellow Northern League side Shildon on 29 November 2012.[25]
