Lee Jacobs Player Profile

Debut: Saffron Walden Town (H, 2-3), 16/11/1981

Not averse to a spell with the club, Lee Jacobs played for us in three separate stints during the early-to-mid-1980s and scored his fair share. His first goal for us came in the United Counties League Premier Division clash with S&L Corby in March 1982. But it wasn’t a completely happy day for him; Jacobs seeing red as Boro’ ran out 6-1 winners. This didn’t do justice, however, to a man who was a talented player of the ball – despite starting life as a midfielder.

Jacobs started in the youth ranks at Boro’, before Cambridge City gave him a run out in their reserves. As a programme of the time notes, however, the travel involved was – in our delicate technical terms – a pain in the arse. So, he returned to Boro’ and made the step up to the first team. And, as he says himself, it was different: “It’s a lot harder physically and certainly a lot quicker. It takes time to fully adjust”. That’s just what he did.

Lee Jacobs: After Boro’

After a third spell with the club at the start of the 1988-9 campaign that extended to just one match, Jacobs moved on again. Ex-Boro’ boss Frank Cornwell took him to Royston Town, where he scored five times in his first 10 appearances. It was a scoring ratio that was much the same as his one with us.
