Squad number 9
28 year old Jacob started his career at Chesterfield in 2012, and was loaned out to several clubs, scoring goals regularly for each of them.
After leaving Chesterfield in 2014, he joined Mickleover Sports whom he helped to win promotion to the Northern Premier League, scoring 18 times.
After a year at Mickleover, he moved to Frickley and scored 19 goals for them in the 2015-16 season. He joined Scarborough in 2016 and scored 13 times for them in 20 matches before joining Frickley again in 2017.
He was a prolific scorer for Frickley, scoring 88 times in 115 matches for them over three seasons – including 47 in one season for them in the EvoStik League South -- a record that persuaded Whitby to sign him in the summer of 2020. He also scored in eleven consecutive games for them.
Jacob was the Northern Premier League Premier Division’s top scorer last season with 26 league goals, six more than anyone else in the league, plus another eight for the Seasiders in the FA Cup and FA Trophy.
Jacob has also been capped three times by St Kitts and Nevis, and was part of their squad in the World Cup and Olympics.
