Kirk Jackson Player Profile

Debut: Nuneaton Borough (A, 1-2), 05/01/2002

Kirk Jackson made his Boro’ debut in a 2-1 defeat away to Nuneaton Borough after boss Paul Fairclough had signed the marksman from Worksop Town. For the Tigers, he was a prolific scorer; 47 goals in just one season was a notable stat that caught Cloughie’s eye. In came Wayne Turner, however, and Jackson was used to hold up or flick on the ball to team mates, which he did with great efficiency.

But this meant he didn’t get the chance to be the prolific goalscorer we needed. In spite of this, he still notched 16 goals in 37 first team appearances. And two of these came during his home debut when we put five past Dover in the FA Trophy. The striker is probably best known for his header in the early stages of the 2002 FA Trophy final, forcing a miraculous save from Yeovil’s ‘keeper high in the top right hand corner.

 

Kirk Jackson: After Boro’

Jackson was a tireless campaigner; giving his all when playing. He was sorely missed. But the main reason for his departure was, probably, the fact he travelled down from Sheffield for every home game and training session. Ultimately, he did not want to move away from Sheffield and leave his job at a fitness centre to play part time for Boro’. Yeovil came in and offered full-time football, however, and this proved to be too big an attraction for him.

The £20,000 the Glovers then paid for him was a relative snip as he quickly got into his stride and started bagging the goals for them too
