Darren Jones (born August 26, 1983 in Newport, Wales) is a Welsh professional footballer. A defender, he currently plays for Aldershot Town.

He began his career as a professional trainee for Bristol City, making one Football League appearance before joining Forest Green Rovers on loan in September 2002. He was then loaned to League Two side Cheltenham Town in 2003, where he made 14 league appearances.

He dropped down in to non league football and signed for Newport County on a free transfer in early 2004, before returning to Forest Green Rovers for a second spell in March 2006. Jones was a pivotal part in keeping Rovers in the Conference on his return to Forest Green and was a central part in the defence when Rovers recorded their highest ever finish in the 2007-08 season. He has also sometimes worn the captains armband because of his strong leadership skills and is regarded as a fans favourite at The New Lawn.

On 9 June 2009 it was confirmed that Darren had signed for recently relegated League Two side Hereford United for the 2009/10 season. In June 2010 Jones moved on again, joining fellow League Two side Aldershot Town.
