Player Profile

Evergreen ‘Dai’ amassed a whopping 292 appearances for the Foxes before, during and after the First World War after arriving at the club from Clapton Orient in May 1933.

Born in Cardiff, the Welsh international started his career with Ely United and moved to Ebbw Vale before catching the eye of Charlton Athletic, where he had trials in 1929. A move to Millwall followed before his Orient switch.

Jones was a bargain for City at £200 and he formed part of a stubborn defensive line in City’s Championship campaign of 1937. He continued playing for the club during the war years but also pulled on the shirt of Notts County, West Ham, Mansfield and Wolves.

He stayed loyal to the Foxes cause when the war was over, spending a further year at the club in the first postwar season and scoring the first goal of that campaign. He was a veteran at 37 when he left City for Mansfield Town but continued at the club for over 70 matches before dropping down to non-league football.

He returned to the Leicester area to finish his footballing career as a player-manager of Hinckley United before becoming a shoe sales executive.
