Ken Jones was a great club man who served the SAINTS well.he was quite a character off the field too.his drinking contest once on pre season tour with Brian O'neill who was wearing a pair of trousers surreptiously borrowed from Terry Paine has gone down in legend thanks to Mick Channon writing about it.
