Thomas Edwin Jones (11 April 1930 – 5 June 2010), known as Tommy E Jones or T. E. Jones to distinguish him from T. G. Jones, was an English former footballer who played for Everton from 1950 until 1961.
Jones signed for Everton straight from school and turned professional in 1948. He began his Everton career as a full back, but moved to centre half to replace T. G. Jones in the 1950–51 season, making his debut against Arsenal on 6 September 1950. Jones established himself as a "model of consistency", a "most reliable and unruffled" defender, and in 1957 he took over the Goodison captaincy, succeeding Peter Farrell who had left the club. He returned to left-back towards the end of his career, replaced at centre-half by a young Brian Labone. He was forced to retire due to a shattered kneecap, having scored 14 goals from 411 appearances during an 11-year senior career with Everton.
Jones never played full international football, but was part of the Football Association's team that toured Nigeria and Ghana in 1958. He was a member of the England Youth team that beat Scotland Youth 4-2 in October 1947 in a match played at Belle Vue, Doncaster.
