• "I can’t think of an England player that every supporter and player would have loved to see more with the three lions on his chest. Simon was right up there with the best that I was fortunate enough to captain."

    Michael Vaughan
  • "What a player, what a man. Simon was the unsung hero in the 2005 Ashes. His crucial wickets and aggression took us over the winning line."

    Kevin Pietersen
  • "Simon Jones only played eighteen Test matches, but to me and most England fans he will always be a legend. His bowling during the 2005 series, against the best Australian team in history, was simply magnificent: fast, furious, swinging both ways like a deranged boomerang, and devastatingly successful. A class act."

    Piers Morgan
  • "Profoundly moving"

    Tom Holland, Daily Telegraph
  • "Exceptional... reminiscent of a mud-and-grit David Peace novel."
