Jones started his professional career with Manchester City in May 1964. Though he played regularly in the reserves, finishing top scorer for three seasons running, he did not make his league debut until December 1966, when he deputised for Mike Summerbee in a match against Nottingham Forest. A week later he scored his first senior goal, against West Bromwich Albion. The following season, he made two appearances in Manchester City's 1967–68 League Championship winning side, though his contribution was insufficient to gain a winners' medal. He later had a career with York City scoring 33 goals in 95 games. 
Despite shake ups to Radio York's York City commentary team for the 2014/5 season, he retains his long running role as match summariser.
