Having played under Justin Edinburgh at Newport County, Jackson was quickly snapped up by his former boss in the summer of 2015 on a two-year deal.


The 24-year-old right-back, formerly of AFC Wimbledon, quickly became a fan favourite thanks to his energetic, attacking performances and his potent long throws.


He made his league debut for the Gills in the 4-0 victory over Sheffield United in the opening day of the 2015/16 season, a campaign that saw him score two memorable goals in away games against Shrewsbury Town and Swindon Town.
