Alan Jones was a full-back that later managed to make a career for himself at Brentford, playing 249 league matches.
Alan was a Welsh schoolboy international full-back who signed professional forms for Liverpool in May 1957 when he was 17 years old. Although he stayed at Anfield for over six years, he only played five times for the first-team.
When regular right-back John Molyneux was unavailable for the visit of Cardiff City a few days before Christmas 1959, Alan stepped in to replace him. The Welshmen won 4-0 but it was a significant day in the club's history, the first time Bill Shankly had been in charge of a Liverpool team. 'Shanks' only called on Alan on four more occasions, the only four games that Gerry Byrne missed during the club's return to the First Division in 1962-63.
