Nathan Jones

Nathan Jones is currently in his second spell as manager of Championship side Luton Town. He began his pro career as a defender at the club in 1995 but after a year at Kenilworth Road, Jones left for a 12-month spell in Spain, playing for Badajoz and Numancia. On returning to the UK he played for Southend, Brighton and Yeovil, winning promotion three times with Brighton.

It was with his final club, Yeovil, that Jones began taking his coaching badges, and in 2009 he became the club’s assistant manager. After a brief spell as U21s manager at Charlton, he was appointed assistant head coach at Championship side Brighton in 2013. Going on to serve the club as first team coach, he also enjoyed a brief spell as its caretaker manager.

Appointed manager of League Two side Luton Town in January 2016, he saved the club from relegation in his first season in charge and oversaw promotion to League One a year later.

In January 2019, with Luton flying high in second place in League One, Jones was appointed manager of Stoke City but he returned to Luton Town almost 18 months later and saved the Championship side from relegation.
