Tommy "TG" Jones



TG Jones was perhaps the finest centre-half of his era and graced Goodison Park with his presence for thirteen years after signing from Wrexham in March 1936.

He picked up a League Champions winners medal in 1938/39 but then after the War suffered with the rest of the squad as Everton toiled through the 1940's.

Described as a "footballing scientist" and brilliant in the air, Jones was, unusually for his era, not an overly physical type of defender.
He was more of a thinker and would read what opponents were about to do before making his move.

Jones wasn't afraid to speak his mind and upset the Everton hierarchy during 1947 when publicly criticising the way the club was run and asking for a transfer.

Later, in 1948, his style brought him to the attention of Italian giants AS Roma and a deal to take him abroad failed only at the last moment over currency issues.
The writing was on the wall though and by 1949 Jones, having started the season as the club captain, had been dropped and could hardly even get a game for the reserves.

In January 1950 he was released after gaining 17 Welsh caps and making 175 appearances for Everton.
