Stevenage complete signing

Stevenage have signed experienced striker Simeon Jackson on a contract until the end of the 2019-2020 League Two campaign.

The fourth division side are currently in danger of being relegated, but pulled themselves off of the bottom spot with an excellent 4-0 win away at Cambridge United on Saturday, overtaking Morecambe.

The Canadian international has had a prolific career so far, having netted 42 goals in 93 games as a young talent at Rushden & Diamonds while they were still in the Football League.

He went on to score 42 in 115 when he made the step back up to the Football League with Gillingham, before Norwich City gave him a chance to pursue football in the top flight, as he helped them to gain promotion from the Championship before spending two seasons in the Premier League.

Stevenage are currently in 23rd place in League Two.

Jackson appeared for German club Eintracht Braunschweig in 2013, before he returned to England and pulled on the shirt of Millwall, Coventry City, Barnsley Blackburn Rovers, Walsall and Grimsby Town.

In the last couple of years, Jackson has featured for St Mirren and Kilmarnock, recently leaving after his contract expired with the latter last month.

The Verdict

Jackson’s goals may have dried up in the last few years, however he will bring added experience to the dressing room and he knows where the net is in the lower levels of the Football League.

The 32-year-old will bring a different dimension to the side as his work ethic off the ball and his ability to play on the shoulder of the last defender will provide Stevenage an outlet over the top to try and aim for when they need to get the ball further forward.
