David Jones

Norwich Career: 1975-1980 (132 appearances, 5 goals)
Current Club: Bashley (Dr Martens League (Manager)
Date of Birth: 11/02/1952
Nationality: Welsh


The inclusion of David Jones in this database of former Canaries was questionable. Although no-one can deny his contribution to the Norwich cause (132 games as centre-back from September 1975 to April 1980), his playing career ended before 1980 which is my cut-off point. As he was on the Norwich books through to April 1980, I have included him.

A Welsh international (8 caps), David's career came to a premature end in May 1978 whilst representing Wales against England. Ligament damage to his knee resulted in numerous operations and eventually his early retirement. David had begun his professional career eight years earlier joining Bournemouth from non-league Fareham Town in 1970. 134 games for the Cherries led to a transfer to Nottingham Forest in 1974 but Brian Clough only gave him 36 games in which to prove himself. Hence his move to Norwich in September 1975. After his retirement, he moved into amateur football with Wroxham before moving to the South Coast where he coached Bournemouth's youth team.

David coached Lymington and New Milton who won the Jewson Wessex League in 1998/99. His side beat Wroxham 2-1 to win the Jewson Challenge Shield in September 1999. David moved onto Bashley in June 2001.
