James "Jimmy" Jones (9 July 1889 - unknown) was a footballer who played as a defender in The Football League in the 1910s and 1920s.

Born in Newburn-on-Tyne, Jones began his career with local side Gateshead. In 1912, he signed for Blackpool, then in Division Two. He made his debut on September 28, 1912, in a 2 0 victory over Fulham at Bloomfield Road. He went on to make a further 31 league appearances during the 1912 13 campaign.

Jones was an ever-present during the 1913 14 season, only to see his place come under pressure from Bert Tulloch in 1914 15.

After four seasons of inter-war football, Jones split starting appearances in the left-back position with Horace Fairhurst in 1919 20. Jones left Blackpool at the end of the season, but Fairhurst died during the following campaign, 1920 21, from a head injury suffered during a game.

Jones joined Bolton Wanderers in the summer of 1920, and went on to make 70 league appearances for the Trotters in his two years with the club.

Jones finished his career with New Brighton in 1927, after five years with the Merseyside club.
