Born in Australia, Brad Jones wears the number one shirt and is a 1.91 metre goalkeeper that was brought to Liverpool in the summer of 2010 to provide back up to established goalkeeper Pepe Reina. The 29-year-old has only made two appearances for the reds so far, but already has experience under his belt as he spent much of his time as understudy to former Middlesbrough stopper Mark Schwarzer during his time at the north-east club. He eventually became first-choice at the Riverside stadium at the start of the 08-09 campaign after battling it out with Ross Turnbull. Despite this however, he couldn’t help Middlesbrough out of relegation trouble because of his own injury woes , but bounced back in time to earn himself a call up to Australia’s World Cup squad – he made 24 appearances. Despite being highly regarded however, it wasn’t until 2008 that Jones became to show the world what he was made of. Mark Schwarzer’s move to Fulham in the summer of 2008 opened the door for more first-team opportunities and, despite suffering some setbacks, he impressed enough to earn a move to Liverpool in 2010. The highly anticipated debut came a month later for the Australian, on September 22, although this was probably a debut to forget as Liverpool slipped to an embarrassing penalties defeat to bottom division Northampton Town in the League Cup. Even though he is still on the books at Liverpool however, first team appearances have been limited for the star who is in direct competition with Spaniard Reina – because of this, Jones joined Derby County on loan for the final few months of 2010-11.
