Mark Alan Jones (born 15 August 1984 in Wrexham) is a Welsh footballer currently playing for Welsh Premier League side Bala Town FC.
Mark's football career started when he joined Wrexham as a trainee in August 2002, making his debut against Exeter City in a 4-0 win the following month.
He fast became one of Wrexham's most popular players and was renowned for his goals from long range. However, after Wrexham's relegation from the Football League in 2008, Mark was released from the club having already stated his intention to leave.
Mark then moved to League Two side Rochdale but only stayed for one season making 13 appearances.
In June 2009, he returned to Wrexham, signing a one-year deal and went straight into the first-team, scoring his first goal since moving back to Wrexham in a 3-0 win over Luton Town on 22 September.
At the end of the year, Mark was once again released by Wrexham.
Following his release from Wrexham, Mark signed for Bala Town. He rejected offers from other Conference National sides in order not to move away from his home and also in the hope of enjoying playing football again. Mark said at the time, "I'm not enjoying playing football full-time at all and have not for a few years. I began playing football as a youngster for the love of it, not for money, and I want to feel that way about football again."
As well as making several appearances for Wales Under-21's, Mark has been called up to the senior Wales squad on two occasions. He made his international debut in a friendly against Liechtenstein on 14 November 2006.
Mark was also named in the Wales squad for games against Iceland and Holland in the summer of 2008.
