A forcing bat, Fred Jones was mentioned in the Times at the start of 1951 and 1952 seasons as one to watch but was unable to secure a regular place in the side, and failed to take advantage of the few chances that came his way. After leaving, he played regularly for Scotland, saving his best performances for matches against the tourists. His career best of 88 came against the Indians in 1959. In 1962-63 he reappeared playing for Hyderabad in Pakistan where he batted at No. 3 and kept wicket in four games.
