Luke Joseph Jones (born 10 April 1987) is an English professional footballer, currently playing for Conference North side Tamworth, where he plays as a central defender, he can also operate at right back.
Jones started his career at Blackburn Rovers, playing regularly at youth and reserve level without making any first-team appearances. During his time with the Lancashire club, Jones was loaned out to Cercle Brugge of the Belgian First Division. He was released by Blackburn in the summer of 2006 and, after a brief spell at Ashton United, joined League Two side Shrewsbury Town in November 2006. He featured sporadically for Shrewsbury and spent time out on loan at Conference National club Kidderminster Harriers in February 2008. Jones signed for Kidderminster on a permanent basis ahead of the 2008–09 season and played regularly. After a year at Kidderminster, he spent one season at Mansfield Town, before becoming Forest Green Rovers’ club captain for the 2010–11 campaign. He returned to Kidderminster the following season, and then re-joined another of his former clubs, Mansfield Town, in June 2012. His second spell at Mansfield was a successful one, with the club winning the Conference National title. At the end of the season, in May 2013, Jones signed for League One side Stevenage on a free transfer before returning to Mansfield for a third time.
