Christian Anthony Hillard Jolley (born 12 May 1988) is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger or a striker for National League South side Margate F.C.

He has previously played for Oxted & District, Kingstonian, AFC Wimbledon, Newport County, Forest Green Rovers and Grimsby Town.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Jolley began his career at Oxted and District while working at a local gym called Tandridge Trust, Leisure & Culture Limited (formerly Tandridge Leisure Limited).[3] In September 2009, he was given a trial by Kingstonian which led to Jolley signing a contract with the club in December 2009.[4] He immediately broke into a first team which narrowly missed out on promotion via the playoffs.[3][5]

AFC Wimbledon[edit]

After impressing at Kingstonian, Jolley was signed by AFC Wimbledon in May 2010.[6] He scored on his debut away against Southport on the first day of the 2010–11 season.[7] He was an unused substitute for the team's play-off final victory over Luton Town that season, which won Wimbledon promotion to the Football League via a penalty shoot-out after a goaless 120 minutes, in which they returned to league football for the first time since Wimbledon F.C. split into AFC Wimbledon and MK Dons.[8] He scored Wimbledon's first league goal in the following campaign.

On 3 July 2011, he signed a new contract.[9] On 29 July, Jolley started for the Dons in their first ever League Cup match,[10] producing an assist for Jack Midson.[3]

Newport County[edit]

On 15 November 2012, Jolley joined Conference National side Newport County on loan.[11] He made his debut for the club on 18 November 2012, scoring Newport's only goal in a 3–1 home defeat by Hyde.[12] After his prolific form, consisting of five league goals in only four league games, Jolley was recalled by AFC Wimbledon on 14 December 2012.[13] However, on 11 January 2013 Jolley returned to Newport County on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.[14] In the 2012–13 season he was part of the Newport team that finished third in the league, reaching the Conference National playoffs. Newport County won the playoff final versus Wrexham at Wembley Stadium 2–0 to return to the Football League after a 25-year absence with promotion to Football League Two. Jolley scored the first goal.[15]

In June 2013 Jolley was named in the 2012–13 Conference Premier team of the year [16]

On 25 September 2014 Jolley joined Forest Green Rovers on a one-month loan.[17] He made his Forest Green debut on 27 September 2014, playing 69 minutes in a 2–1 home defeat against Barnet.[18] On 24 October 2014, it was confirmed that his loan spell with Forest Green had been extended by a further month.[19] Having made seven league appearances, his loan spell with the club came to an end on 22 November 2014 after Forest Green boss Adrian Pennock confirmed he would be returning to Newport County.[20]

On 21 January 2015, having made only 5 league appearances in the 2014–15 season, Jolley's contract with Newport County was terminated by mutual consent.[21]

Grimsby Town[edit]

On 26 January 2015, Jolley signed for Conference Premier side Grimsby Town until the end of the season.[22][23]

Margate[edit]

On 27 June 2015, Jolley signed for National League South side Margate.[24]

International career[edit]

Jolley made his debut for the England C team on 5 February 2013 as a second-half substitute in the 1–0 defeat against Turkey Under 23's.[25]
