Jones made his Grecians debut as substitute at Dagenham & Redbridge in December 2004 and the first thing he did was save a penalty!

An England National Game XI international, Jones signed a new three-year deal with the club in January 2008, and moved to Peterborough United on loan for the rest of the season in January 2011.
