Jacko has always been a Gravesend player....he just had a gap year.

Excellent news. There has been a lot of debate on here about whether Jacko is better than this player or that player, but one thing we do know is that he has always given 100% for the Fleet cause, and will no doubt continue to do so.

 

Welcome back Jacko!

Great news what a good looking squad Andy seems to be assembling now all we really need is another striker and I think we will be looking good Correct me if I am wrong but we now have 17 players on contracts

 

GK Wilkinson, Mitten

 

Def Matt Lee, Lee Gledhill, Justin skinner, Matt Rouse, Graham Porter, Lee Shearer and Chris Moore

 

Mid Steve McKimm, Lee Protheroe, Andy Drury, Jimmy Jackson,Jay Saunders,Moussa Sidibe,

 

Forwards James Pinnock, Roy Essendoah

 

Have I missed anyone

 

We seem to have a good mix of left and right sided players as well as a good mix of options, and utility players who can play in a variety of positions and a new full time manager. Something will soon go wrong.

Rumour has it that we are Mannys last resort....if he doesnt get offered a full time contract he will play for us.

I shouldn't think that gives us much chance of getting him though. frown.gif

Great to hear rumours at least we are getting some info on club as they appear to not be bothered to tell their own fans on their own website

I think everybody has got your point now after repeating yourself on more than one thread! <img src="/images/graemlins/sleeping.gif" alt="" />

Great news about Jacko!We`ve got a great squad taking shape now,and what with all the players not being retained by so many clubs,I think Andy Ford can take a bit of time to find the right players for the Fleet to turn us into a play-off side next year.........Ain`t it a great feeling to look forward to next season with such anticipation!

Totally agree with that, I distinctly remember noting around June last year that I really feared for our Conference survival after losing Jacko & Bentley, who were instrumental in our staying up the previous season, OK thank christ I was proved wrong, but I do feel that he is a talisman of sorts he gives everything when he plays and does love the club, and that is a priceless commodity as most players are pretty mercenary these days.

Also don't forget all the other players who have already signed contracts. They haven'y done it for the money. As Chris Moore said "I love this club. It's the best I have ever played for".

This is what makes genuine team spirit and success.

Notice also Leon Braithwaite has been released by D & R. At 31 he may now want regular 1st team action, but he is vastly experienced and would be a good cover for Roy.

not 100% sure about him re-signing, may be a step back although is he gets lots of assists and goals and plays well i won't complain.

I'm happy about the signing. As Ben appears not to have been offered a contract I think we need someone to play left side of midfield. And if necessary we know Jacko can fill in at left back or in the centre of midfield. I think everyone was hugely disappointed when he left last year and would have given anything to keep him and yet only one year on some people seem to be less than happy about his return and i find that strange.

I suppose it's because the team did a whole lot better this season than last. So it may be viewed as turning back the clock.

 

For me though

 

Delighted to see Mr Jacksons return. Looking forward to him breaking the club appearance record and infuencing other team members with his commitment.

When I went to the boozer last night to watch the mighty Hammers, I said to my mate "Have you heard about Jimmy Jackson?" to which he replied "Yeah, apparently he's given up football and taken up full-time cricket." Er, 'scuse me????? Rumours, don't you just love'em!?!

Full time cricket? well that should take up 2 or 3 months of his time, unless he's been called up by the England selectors to tour Zimbabweewee!

My mates' son plays cricket against him occasionally i'll impress upon him to not bowl him to many bouncers.
