Claremont's most recent Sandover Medallist commenced his league career with the club in 1994. Between 1995 and 2003 he alternated between the Tigers and AFL club Fremantle, but his appearances were limited owing to a succession of debilitating injuries. A defender for much of his career, he won the Sandover in 2007 while playing mainly at centre half forward. Almost 33 years of age at the time of his win, Jones entered the record books as the second oldest Medal recipient of all time, behind East Perth's 1923 winner, William 'Digger' Thomas.
