Evan Jones (born 20 October 1888 in Aberdare) was a Welsh international centre forward who played for Chelsea between September 1909 and December 1910, making 21 appearances, all in the league. He was the first Welshman to play for Chelsea. Jones made his debut early in the 1909-10 season at the age of 20, and was a regular in the side for the following two months, scoring goals in consecutive matches in October, before gaining another run in the side in the middle of the season. He only made one appearance after February however, as poor results led to Chelsea's relegation from the top flight. After appearing three times the following season he left to join Oldham Athletic. He later played for Bolton Wanderers.
