At the second event he beat Anthony Hamilton 4–3, James Wattana 4–2 and Sam Craigie 4–1 to reach the last 16, where he was edged out 3–4 by Rory McLeod. Two other last 32 defeats saw Jones finish 75th on the PTC Order of Merit.
Jones played in seven out of twelve PTC events during the 2012/2013 season and could only win a total of three matches to be ranked 106th on the Order of Merit. He earned a place in the EBSA Qualifying Tour Play-Offs by finishing number 2 in the rankings and winning the Scottish Amateur Open and beat Elliot Slessor 4–2 and John Parkin 4–0 to claim a place back on the snooker tour for the 2013/2014 season.
