Norwich Career: 2016-18  (1 appearance)
Current Club: Kings Lynn Town (National League)
Date of Birth: 28/6/1986 (Maidstone) 
Nationality: English


Goalkeeper Paul Jones joined Norwich on 4th August 2016 as the club's third choice keeper competing for a place against John Ruddy and Michael McGovern

Born in Maidstone, Kent, Jones began his career with the youth system of Charlton Athletic in 2001 before signing for Leyton Orient's youth system in 2002. Despite never breaking into their first team, Jones was thought highly of by then youth coach Alex Inglethorpe.

When Alex Inglethorpe was appointed manager of Conference side  Exeter City in Autumn 2004, one of his first moves was to bring Paul Jones in on loan. Jones quickly established himself as City's first choice keeper, making 23 appearances. On 1st July 2005, Inglethorpe acquired Jones from Orient, and signed him to a permanent dea

Jones went on to make 158 appearances for Exeter.

On 31 January 2011 Jones joined Peterborough United on loan until the end of the 2010–11.season. He made the move permanent by signing an initial one-year contract on 24 June 2011 to join on a free transfer. He found himself picked as first choice keeper for the majority of the season, as a result Peterborough offered him a new contract but he rejected it

On 26 May 2012, it was confirmed that Jones had signed for newly promoted League One side Crawley Town. He made 92 appearances before joining Portsmouth in June 2014. He made 55 appearances for Pompey but was loaned back to Crawley in February 2016.

Jones made his Norwich debut on 23rd August 2016 in the 6-1 win over Coventry at Carrow Road in the Football League Cup.

Jones returned to Exeter on 4th January 2018 on loan for the remainder of the 2017/18 season. Jones said "It feels good to be back. I haven't had much game time at Norwich, so it was the right thing for me to do. I asked the question to Norwich if I could go out on loan and they said 'yes'. As soon as I found out Exeter wanted me it was a no-brainer for me."

Released at the end of his contract at the end of the 2017/18 season, Jones joined Kilmarnock on trial before signing for Fleetwood on a one year contract on 2nd August 2018. He left the club in May 2019 having made 3 appearances.

On 6th August 2019, Jones joined Sheffield Wednesday. He didn't play for them.

On 1st June 2021 he signed for Kings Lynn having had kept his home in Norwich. “I have got a young family and with all of the circumstances going on the offers I was having were a long way from home and I didn’t want to do that. That is why King’s Lynn ticked a lot of boxes for me, where I am at age-wise, family-wise, location so, yes, it just suits everything for me and hopefully it suits the club as well. Lynn manager Ian Culverhouse was Jones' youth team manager at Leyton Orient.
