Birthplace: Llandudno, Wales

Position: Left-back

Biography: Joined a struggling Chelsea team for £34,500 and helped restore morale with his performances on the pitch and his dressing room banter. Became a crowd favourite after an initial bad start when he was sent off on his debut at Carlisle. A close pal of Mickey Thomas, he spent much of his time in SW6 living in Wrexham but he was still able to play a vital role in the club's march to the Second Division title in 1984. His reluctance to relocate to the capital and absence from training saw John Hollins bring in Doug Rougvie. Jones was relegated to the role of understudy but still managed to play 21 games as a utility man. Hung around at the club for another year but was sold for £35,000 to Huddersfield in 1985. A Wrexham legend, has coached the reserves, youth team and is now first team coach.
