Gary Kenneth Jones (born 5 January 1951) is an English former footballer who played as a winger.

Born in Prescot, which was then in Lancashire, Jones joined Everton from school, and remained with the club for ten years, but played relatively infrequently; only in his last two seasons did he play more than 13 games a season for the first team.[1] He joined Birmingham City in 1976, spending two seasons with the club before finishing his playing career with Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the North American Soccer League.[2][3]

Following his retirement he bought a local public house, The Albert in Lark Lane, Liverpool.[4]
