Clifford William Jones (born 7 February 1935) is a Welsh former footballer.

Jones joined Tottenham Hotspur in February 1958 for a record £35,000. He made his debut for the club on 22 February 1958 in the away match against Arsenal at Highbury. For a while Jones didn't play at his best at Spurs, and he then broke a leg in a tackle with Peter Baker during pre-season training in the summer of 1958. He returned to the team after his recovery in December 1958. He became a prolific goalscorer for the club, scoring 25 goals in all appearances in the 1959–60 season.

Jones was a key member of the double-winning team of the 1960–61 season, scoring 19 goals that season. He was also part of the successful Spurs sides in the 1962 FA Cup Final and 1963 European Cup Winners Cup Final, and he also won a further medal as a non-playing substitute in the 1967 FA Cup Final. In 1962, Juventus offered a world-record fee of £125,000 to sign him but the offer was turned down. Jones played on both wings at Tottenham; he played on the right wing in the Double-winning season, and on the left in the subsequent seasons. He made his final appearance and scored his last goal for Tottenham in the match against Manchester United on 9 October 1968. He remains one of the top scorers in the club's history, scoring 159 goals in 378 games (135 in 318 league games).
