Joe Jakub (born on 7 December 1956, in Falkirk, Scotland) is a Scottish former professional footballer who played as a defender and midfielder for Burnley, Bury, AZ Alkmaar, Chester City and Wigan Athletic.
Joe's career centred mainly around Burnley. He joined the Turf Moor outfit as a youth player during the summer of 1972 and spent the majority of his career at the club in two spells. He played in all four divisions of the English professional league system for the Clarets and was a regular in their side when they won the final Football League Fourth Division championship in 1991–92.
He also enjoyed a six-year stint with Bury from 1980 to 1986 that was followed by spells with Dutch side AZ Alkmaar, two separate seasons at Chester City (also working as a youth coach in his second spell at the club), Wigan Athletic, Preston North End (without making any league appearances) and North Wales non–league side Colwyn Bay.
