Biography

A second home, Edward Jones was probably the most dangerous attack player in the south of England in the early part of the 20th century. He was ambidextrous as a lacrosse player, and this gave him a big advantage, and made him a prolific goalscorer. He learnt his lacrosse during his time at Ley’s School, Cambridge, and after leaving in 1898, joined the West London Lacrosse Club, and the following year Jones played in the final of the English Club Championship for the Iroquois Cup against Stockport at Fallowfield, but was on the losing side. In 1900 he was first selected for the South in the annual match against the North, and that same year, made his international début for England against Ireland, and also represented Kent in the County Championship. He won many further county and international honours, and continued playing until the outbreak of World War I.
