Brad Jones was brought to Liverpool in the summer of 2010 to provide back-up for Pepe Reina.
Having arrived in England from hometown club Bayswater City SC back in July 1998, the Australia international spent the majority of his career before Liverpool as an understudy at Middlesbrough.
Occasional moments in the limelight included deputising for Mark Schwarzer in a memorable UEFA Cup semi-final triumph over Steaua Bucharest in 2006.
Having punctuated his time in the north-east with loan spells to Shelbourne, Stockport, Rotherham, Blackpool and Sheffield Wednesday, Jones eventually became first-choice at the Riverside at the start of the 2008-09 season.
He was set to feature for Australia in the 2010 World Cup until relinquishing his spot due to his son Luca's illness.
A move to Liverpool followed in August 2010, with his Reds debut arriving at Anfield a month later on September 22 - though it was one to forget as the club slipped to an embarrassing penalties defeat to bottom division Northampton Town in the League Cup.
With opportunities limited, Jones joined Derby County on loan for the final few months of 2010-11 - but by the end of 2011, football was put into tragic perspective when five-year-old Luca lost his battle with leukaemia.
Pitch time was proving hard to come by at Anfield but just days after the birth of his second child, Jones was handed an opportunity to shine on one of the biggest stages of all.
With Reina suspended, Alexander Doni started our league clash at Ewood Park in April 2012 - but his dismissal saw our Aussie custodian introduced, and straight away he saved a penalty.
The following weekend Jones helped the Reds overcome neighbours Everton at Wembley to reach the FA Cup final.
An injury to Reina during the opening months of the 2012-13 campaign provided increased first-team opportunities for Jones, who was subsequently handed a fresh contract in December 2012.
