Career Biography

The experienced centre-back joined Pools on short-term contract at the beginning of March 2016 and made his debut in the 3-1 win at Barnet.

The Stockton-born defender was released by Doncaster Rovers and spent a fortnight training with Pools, during which time he impressed Craig Hignett who made him his first signing as boss.

Standing at 6ft 7ins, Jones began his career with York City but has also had spells with Stockport County, Grimsby Town, Hibernian, Scunthorpe United, Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster during which he amassed almost 400 senior appearances.

Jones – who scored a last-minute equaliser for Doncaster against Pools at The Vic in 2012 – signed a new deal during the summer to stay with the Club for the current campaign.
