Jones began his career with his hometown club, Swansea Town. A highly skilled winger, he was a Welsh under-23 international and made his full international debut in October 1962, the first of fifteen caps. After six years with Swansea he was brought to Home Park by Malcolm Allison, for a then club-record £45,000, which was at the time also a British record fee for a winger. After almost three crowd-pleasing years at Home Park, during which time he helped the club reach the League Cup semi-final, he returned to Wales to play for Cardiff City.
A switch to a more central midfield role saw Jones virtually ever present for the next three years, during which time Cardiff won three Welsh Cups and had a memorable run to the semi-final of the European Cup Winners Cup. A broken leg suffered in October 1969 saw his professional career brought to a premature end, despite several comeback attempts, after which he had spells with non-league clubs Yeovil Town, Worcester City and Merthyr Tydfil.

Barrie Jones was a fantastic ball player, and very exciting to watch. He would usually warm up by going to one of the corner flags and dribbling around it.
I remember him playing against Coventry in what might have been the first home game of that season (early 60s). We were attacking the Barn Park End and he received the ball for the first time about 40 yards out. There was an immediate buzz sounding throughout the stadium that sent a shiver down the spine. He went forward a few yards before unleashing a terrific shot that either just missed the goal or was saved. ... More
