Jonathon Tumes first played football for the Burnside Primary School. He later attended Marryatville High School, and played junior football for Norwood.
In the early part of his career, Tumes played predominantly as a key forward. However, in his second year of under 19s he was moved to defence and developed into a rebounding full-back.
Tumes made his league debut late in the 1992 season and played in the last three minor round games after he had started the season in the under 19’s.
