William "Billy" Jones (born 24 March 1987) is an English footballer who plays for West Bromwich Albion. Jones started his career at Crewe Alexandra, who are known for their production of good young players, although a majority of them are attacking players.

Jones made his professional debut in October 2003, in Crewe's 3 0 win over Derby County. Since then, Jones had been a regular in Crewe's back-line and, for the 2005 06 season, he played a majority of games in midfield. He later became the club's top goalscorer during the same season. In his fourth year for Crewe, Jones made his 100th league appearance against Millwall.

One of Jones' notable abilities is his influence on the players around him. He is also considered to be a strong tackler and despite his lack of pace, the English defender makes up for it in his ability to read the game.
