Joynes commenced his football career in 1899 with Newark Avenue and then joined Newark Town in the following season before joining First Division Notts County in December 1901. He immediately made his debut in the Football League on 28th December 1901 in a 6-1 home win over Small Heath, later to become Birmingham City. He scored three times in forty-six League games and also played in one F.A. Cup tie in the two seasons he was at Meadow Lane. He returned to Newark Town in May 1903, before joining Southern League Brighton & Hove Albion in May 1905. He made seventy Southern League appearances and scored ten goals. He also played midweek in the United League and together with the games in the F.A. Cup boosted his goal tally to twenty-two and his appearances to one hundred and twenty-two. He had been joint highest scorer for the club in the 1905-06 season, with nine, but while a good provider of crosses from the right wing he did weigh in with his share of goals. When Manager Frank Scott-Walford, was appointed Manager of Leeds City, he and several team-mates soon followed in May 1908. He made his debut on the first day of the season at outside right in a 1-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur. However, he showed his versatility in featuring in three different positions, making eight in his favoured position of outside right, six apprearances at inside right and one at inside-left in his first season and opened up his goal account in a 1-2 home defeat by Bolton Wanderers on 9th December 1908. He also played once in the F.A. Cup, at centre forward, in the 1-1 home draw with West Ham United on 6th February 1909. He was a little more settled in his second season playing once in his preferred ouside-right spot, five at inside-right and once at inside-left in his seven appearances. Having scored once in twenty-three appearances he left Leeds in 1910 and didn’t play again professionally. He died in 1949.
