A former coach and assistant manager at Brighton, Charlton and Yeovil, he was a player at Kenilworth Road in 1995 but left without making an appearance.

Jones spent a year in Spain before returning to the UK and playing for Southend, Brighton and Yeovil where he went onto make over 500 appearances.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="One to Watch"]

After two spells on loan at Kenilworth Road, McGeehan made the switch permanent last summer as he joined from Norwich City.
