Jones was a good shot stopper but shocking on crosses and also never seemed to deal well with looping balls
Jones was decent keeper when he left us, went to Peterborough and became first choice for them, and made 92 appearances for Crawley in 2 seasons, doesn't sound like 'they couldn't wait to move him on', he went on to a bigger club after them in Portsmouth.
No doubt his agent has earned his money with some of the moves he got in recent years, but he obviously had something about him to get a contract from all these decent clubs.
Believe me, they did! My mates were chuffed when they signed him at Crawley but like us, he was soon found out and hanging on for ages. They wondered why he still got being picked. I think I remember his last at SJP or one of his last possibly against Brentford for City when we lost 4-1. As a goalkeeper myself, he was truly dreadful! My mates at Crawley were howling out for a new replacement and now they've got Glenn Morris, possibly the best keeper in League 2.
