Jacob Pepper (born 8 May 1992 in Newcastle, Australia) is an Australian football (soccer) player who plays for Newcastle Jets.


On 18 December 2010, Pepper made his senior debut in a 4-0 loss to Wellington Phoenix.[1] On 14 February 2012 it was announced he had signed a two year contract extension with Newcastle Jets.[2] Pepper has since cemented his spot in the starting XI with a string of impressive performances towards the backend of the 2011/12 season. This included a brace of goals in a 3-1 win away against a star-studded Melbourne Victory side, and a deserved call-up to the youth international scene.

International career[edit]

On 7 March 2011 he was selected to represent the Australia Olympic football team in an Asian Olympic Qualifier match against Iraq.[3]
