Clifford William Jones (born Swansea 7 February 1935) was capped 59 times for Wales national team and was part of Tottenham Hotspur's 1960–61 double-winning side.
He scored 159 goals in 378 games for Spurs and moved on to Fulham in 1968 and two years later joined Lynn having been signed by Reg Davies, a fellow Welsh international.
Cliff Jones made his Lynn debut on 15 August 1970 against Romford and went on to make 27 appearances.
Jones' last appearance was on 9 January 1971 against Dover. By that time Davies had left the club and Lynn had appointed former Tottenham and Arsenal defender Laurie Brown as manager in November 1970.
He controversially dropped Jones for an FA Trophy match against Bedford Town the week after the Dover defeat despite him being Lynn's leading scorer at the time with 13 goals (including three penalties).
Brown claimed that Jones was not making a big enough effort - particularly in away games. Lynn lost the tie 1-0.
Jones went on to join Bedford Town and scored the only goal when Lynn played there in a Southern League fixture on 27 March 1970.
