Jamie vows to push the front three for a starting position

Jamie Jackson has vowed to make life difficult for his new manager, after coming ‘home’ to Sandy Lane.

The striker was Worksop Town’s main man in his first spell with the club, a player almost guaranteed a starting place thanks to his ability to impact a game.

But he’s rejoining a club with a red hot strikeforce, and could find himself fourth in the pecking order for a place up front.

Jackson welcomes the challenge: “I’m not under any illusions, I know they’ve got a very good front three, but competition is good – it pushes you, and hopefully there’ll be some hard decisions for Mark to make.”

“If the lads up front slack off, then I’ll be nipping in.”

Jackson hasn’t had the best of times since departing Tigers in 2012, a fact he openly admits.

So he’s happy to be back and wants to help the club compete for promotion.

“It’s been a tough two seasons since I left here, things haven’t worked out as I hoped they would.”

“It’s nice to be given a chance to come back and hopefully play some football, playing the right way.”

“I know the club, it feels a bit like home here, I know what I’m coming into.”

“Worksop Town is on the verge of doing something special and hopefully I can be part of it again.”
