Philip Lee Jones, known as Lee Jones (born 29 May 1973) is a Welsh footballer who plays as a centre-forward.

Born in Wrexham, he began his career with his hometown club, making his debut during the 1990/91 season. He showed much potential, which in March 1992, earned him a move to Liverpool, aged 18. He failed to break into Liverpool's first team though, and made just four appearances in 5 years, due in part to suffering two broken legs. He was loaned out to Crewe, twice back to Wrexham, and in March 1997, to Tranmere Rovers. It was this loan spell that led to a permanent transfer, for £100,000 in May of the same year. He spent three years with Tranmere. In July 2000 he moved onto Barnsley but in March 2002, he returned to Wrexham for a fourth spell. His third game back saw him put five past Cambridge United, but his next few years were marred by injury.

In the summer of 2004 he was released, subsequently joining League of Wales side Caernarfon Town. After a brief spell as joint-caretaker manager at Caernarfon (with Kenny Irons), he signed for the NEWI Cefn Druids in November 2006.

Jones has represented Wales at Youth, Under-21 and B level, and he also won two caps for the senior side.
