Jones signed from Marine in April 1960 and turned professional on the day he completed his National Service with RAMC at Crookham, after playing as an amateur in United’s North Midlands Combination League side. He could play on either flank but most of his senior outings were at right-back. With Grenville Hair a fixture at left-back, he and Terry Caldwell occupied the right back position until Hair was moved to right back as John Kilford staked his claim for the left-back position. In the following season it was Hair, a fixture at right or left back, and Jones and Kilford fighting to be his partner. Cliff Mason was bought from Sheffield United in March 1962, as Leeds fought to stave off relegation. The young and fast improving Paul Reaney would make himself a fixtute at right back after his debut on 8th September 1962, which meant that Hair replaced Mason until Willie Bell, was transformed from a run-of-the-mill half-back into a Scottish International left-back. Jones had played his final game for Leeds on 3rd March 1962 and was fighting to merit a place in the Leeds Reserve team, against a host of experienced full-backs and also some promising Juniors such as Terry Cooper and Barrie Wright. Jones decided it was time to move and in June 1962 Lincoln City paid £4,000 to take him to Sincil Bank. He played his first game for the Imps on 18th August 1962, in a 4-2 victory over Tranmere Rovers in the Fourth Division encounter at Sincil Bank. His final game was another Fourth Division game at Sincil Bank in a 0-1 defeat to Barnsley on 6th May 1967 and in between, he gave them good service scoring three goals in one hundred and seventy-nine starts and one appearance from the bench in the League and he also started twenty other Cup games during his five year stay. He joined Non-League Wigan Athletic in the summer of 1967, moving on to Cheshire County League team Horwich RMI the following year, combining playing with working in a car factory.
