Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Noble rose through the academy at Sunderland and entered the reserve team in 2009–10, whilst continuing to impress for Kevin Ball's youth side.

Carlisle United (loan)[edit]

Taken in on loan at League One side Carlisle United in January 2011,[3] he made his debut for the club in a 4–0 win over Bristol Rovers on 15 January. After his loan deal was extended until the end of the season,[4] he won his first league start on 22 January, helping Carlisle to a 1–0 win over at Notts County at Meadow Lane.

His impressive performances for the Cumbrians impressed Abbott enough to take Noble on a six-month loan deal. He joined them permanently on 12 January 2012

Notts County[edit]

On 3 June 2014, Noble joined Notts County on a two-year on a free transfer following his release by Carlisle United.[5]

On 11 August 2015, he scored a brace in a 2–1 upset win at Championship side Huddersfield Town in the first round of the League Cup, after Notts had been trailing 0–1.[6]

Forest Green Rovers[edit]

In June 2016, Noble signed for National League club Forest Green Rovers on a two-year contract.[7] He made his debut for the club on 16 August 2016 in a 1–0 away win at Woking where he provided the assist for the winning goal.[8] He scored his first goal for the club on 3 September 2016 in a 2-1 away win against Chester.[9]
