Jacob Walcott (born 29 June 1992) is an English footballer who plays for Banbury United as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, Walcott began his career in the Academy at Reading, joining as a 13-year-old in 2006.[2] He signed scholarship forms in 2008 before turning professional in 2010.[3][4] In September 2010 he joined Staines Town on loan,[5] extending the deal for a further month in October.[6] During his time with the club he made five league appearances in the league and played once in the FA Cup.[7] He soon moved out on loan again, joining Dutch side Telstar in January 2011.[8] He remained at the club until the end of the 2010–11 season scoring two goals in fourteen appearances in the Eerste Divisie.[7] In January 2012 he returned to the Netherlands to train with FC Utrecht but was not offered a contract.[9][10] Four months later he moved to Stevenage on a similar arrangement and played for their reserves in a 6–1 defeat to Southend United reserves,[11] though he again did not secure a permanent deal. In May 2012 he was released by Reading without making a senior appearance for the club.[12]

He joined Southern League team North Leigh in summer 2012, though he remained there for just a few months before joining Conference North neighbours Oxford City in September 2012.[13][14] His stay with Oxford was equally brief and in December, after only seven appearances, he moved back to North Leigh.[15]

In August 2014 he signed for Banbury United.[16]

International career[edit]

Walcott represented England at under-16 and under-17 level.[17][18] He made his debut for the under-16s against the Netherlands in February 2008, making three appearances in total. Later in the same year he played his first game for the under-17s against Finland and went on to win a further 14 caps, scoring four times.[19]

Personal life[edit]

He is a distant cousin of fellow player Theo Walcott.[20]
