Jones debuted in League football with a solid performance as a ruckman in the opening round of the 1935 VFL season when Melbourne lost to Essendon 15.9 (99) to 24.15 (159). He was primarily a follower during his career but also played at centre half back, the position in which he was a member of Melbourne's 1939 and 1940 premiership teams. A Maryborough recruit, he had a strong year in 1938 when he gathered 12 Brownlow Medal votes to finish as the best placed Melbourne player and equal ninth overall.
