Ernie Jones had a short-lived Spurs career, with his arrival coming just before the end of the 1946-47 season, before he was used in a part-exchange deal to bring Alf Ramsey to White hart Lane from Southampton.

Ernie had started his career at Bolton Wanderers in 1938 as an amateur, but didn't play a first team game in five years there, so he moved to his home-town club, Swansea Town and it was from the Welsh side that Tottenham signed Ernie up for 7,000.

A winger with an eye for goal, Ernie served Spurs well with a fair number of goals from his wing position, perhaps serving as a template for the next winger to join Spurs fro the South Wales club - Cliff Jones.  However, when the chance came to sign defender Alf |Ramsey from Southampton, Jones was part of the deal 

His last appointment in football was as player-manager at Rhyl Town.

After retiring from football, Ernie worked for the Hawker Siddeley company in Bolton.

Eric Jones died in November 2002.
