Alan Jones (born 6 October 1945 in Swansea) is a former Welsh footballer who played during the 1960s and 1970s as a central defender.

He started his career at hometown club Swansea City, then known as Swansea Town, and turned professional in October 1963. He went on to make 61 league appearances, scoring 6 goals, before joining Hereford United in 1968. He spent six seasons at Edgar Street and was a member of the team that famously knocked Newcastle United out of the FA Cup and gained election to The Football League in the same season.

He later played for Southport, in the United States for Los Angeles Aztecs and latterly in the Welsh leagues.

After retiring from football, he became a prison officer.
