Career

Jones started playing snooker aged twelve, joining his local snooker club and playing on full sized tables after being impressed at how easy Jimmy White made the game look on television. He later became Welsh under-16 captain and the youngest player to win the singles in the Aberdare Valley Snooker League.

During the 2010/2011 season, Jones started to feature in Players Tour Championship events, as well as Q School and ranking events as a top up player.In the 2013 Welsh Open, Jones beat former World Championship semi-finalist Andy Hicks in the opening round of qualifying 4–3, before a narrow 4–3 defeat to former world champion Neil Robertson in the following round.Jones, lost at the final stage of Q School in 2013 (to Lee Spick) and 2014 (to Chris Melling),however these performance did earn him the chance to compete in more ranking events as a top up amateur player.The most notable result he recorded being a 5–2 win over top 16 player Joe Perry with breaks of 141, 137, 75 and 74 to qualify for the 2014 China Open, where he lost 5–3 to Yu Delu in the first round.

Jones qualified for the 2016 Indian Open with a 4–2 victory over Yu Delu and narrowly beat Liam Highfield 4–3 in the first round to reach the last 32 of a ranking event for the first time, where he lost 4–1 to Peter Ebdon. He got to the second round in three of the four Home Nations tournaments, but was knocked out each time. He has finished the year outside the top 64 in the world rankings and is therefore set to play in Q School in an effort to remain.
