Club career[edit]

AFC Wimbledon[edit]

Born in Streatham, London, Jackson progressed through the youth system of AFC Wimbledon and joined the reserve team in 2008. On 3 April 2010, he made his first team debut for the Dons in a Conference Premier match against Histon in a 3–1 win, coming on as a substitute.[3] In April 2010, he signed a full-time contract after a man-of-the-match display against Tamworth in his first start for the club.[4] He became a first team regular in the 2010–11 season, with 42 appearances in all competitions and goals against Mansfield Town and Hayes & Yeading United,[5] but did not feature in the 2011 Conference Play-off final win over Luton Town, which saw the Dons gain a place in the Football League.[6]

On 10 September 2011, Jackson made his Football League debut in a 1–1 draw with Aldershot Town, coming on as a substitute.[7] On 14 October, he joined injury-hit Conference Premier side Fleetwood Town on a one-month loan.[8] He scored twice on his debut that same day in a 3–1 away win against Lincoln City.[9] On 31 January 2012, he joined Cambridge United on loan until the end of the season.[10] He was released by Wimbledon at the end of the season when his contract expired.[11]

Macclesfield Town[edit]

On 7 June 2012, Jackson signed for Macclesfield Town, dropping one tier to return to the Conference National.[12]

Newport County[edit]

In July of the following year, he signed for newly promoted Football League Two side Newport County on a free transfer.[13]

Gillingham[edit]

In May 2015, Jackson turned down a new contract offer at Newport and signed for Football League One side Gillingham on a two-year contract.[14] He was signed by Gillingham manager Justin Edinburgh who had previously managed him at Newport County.

Jackson was released by Gillingham at the conclusion of the 2016–17 season.[15]

International career[edit]

Jackson was called up to represent the England C team in January 2013, for the International Challenge Trophy semi-final tie against Turkey U23s. He then earned another call up to the England C national team in June 2013, Jackson played the full 90 minutes in a 6–1 victory over Bermuda to earn his second cap.
