Who was Abe Jones, Jr.?

Abraham Jones was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Birmingham, Reading, Brighton & Hove Albion and Merthyr Town.

Jones was born in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, the son of West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough player Abe Jones. A forward, he played local football for West Bromwich Sandwell before joining Birmingham in 1919. He made his debut in the Second Division deputising for Harry Hampton in a home game against Fulham on 6 April 1920, scoring both goals in a 2–0 win. Though Jones retained his place for the next two games, Hampton kept him out of the side thereafter, and in August 1921 he moved on to Reading. A season later he joined Brighton & Hove Albion, after another year went to Merthyr Town, and then to Stoke.
