Philip Lee Jones, known as Lee Jones (born 29 May 1973[1]) is a Welsh former footballer who played as a centre-forward and current football coach.

Born in Wrexham, he began his career with his hometown club. In March 1992 he moved to Liverpool, aged 18. However, he only managed four appearances in 5 years, in part due to suffering two broken legs. He was loaned out to Crewe, twice back to Wrexham, before transferring to Tranmere Rovers in 1996/97. He spent three years with Tranmere. In July 2000 he moved onto Barnsley but in 2002 he returned to Wrexham for a fourth spell.[2]

In the summer of 2004 he was released, subsequently joining League of Wales side Caernarfon Town. After a brief spell as joint-caretaker manager at Caernarfon (with Kenny Irons), he signed for the NEWI Cefn Druids in November 2006.

He had a brief spell as joint caretaker manager at Wrexham at the tail-end of the 2014/15 season alongside Carl Darlington following Kevin Wilkin's sacking.

He coached the Glyndŵr University Football Academy at Wrexham F.C before rejoining Tranmere Rovers in June 2016 as Academy Manager.[3]

Jones has represented Wales at Youth, Under-21 and B level,[4] and he also won two caps for the senior side.[1]
