Notts County Football Club are delighted to announce that former player Mick Jones has rejoined the club as Chris Kiwomya’s Assistant Manager.
Jones, who made over 100 appearances for the Magpies, will be familiar to Notts supporters beyond his playing days, as he was Neil Warnock’s assistant during the double play-off success in the early 90s.
He brings a wealth of experience, not just within the Premier League and Football League, where he most recently applied his knowledge at Leeds United, but also internationally, as he managed the Brunei national team and won the Malaysian Cup.
The accomplished coach has previously had spells with a number of clubs including Mansfield Town, Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Peterborough United, before arriving at Meadow Lane with Warnock as coach in 1989 and then being promoted to Assistant Manager a year later.
The Magpies gained back-to-back promotions and reached the top flight through successive victories in the play-offs, beating Tranmere Rovers and Brighton & Hove Albion in the finals at Wembley.
That’s not his only triumph for the club, as he was also successful during his playing days at Meadow Lane as part of the 1970.71 squad that were crowned the Champions of Division Four, playing 37 times and scoring one goal, in a 4-1 thrashing of Cambridge United.
Two years later he played 13 games in another promotion campaign, before leaving to join Peteborough.
Incidentally, he was so determined to sign for the club from Derby County back in 1969 that he interrupted his honeymoon to sign on the dotted line!
Everyone at Meadow Lane would like to welcome Mick back to the club and wish him all the very best in the future campaign.
