During his youth days, Jay spent time in our Academy as well as playing local grassroots football.
He began his senior career at the age of 16, playing six games for Congresbury and 10 games for Cheddar Reserves during the 2017-2018 season in the Somerset County League.
He featured six times for Congresbury, scoring once, at the start of the 2018-2019 season before joining Western League Premier Division club Odd Down, making four appearances.
In January 2019, he joined fellow Western League Premier Division club Hengrove Athletic where he made six appearances for the Bristol club across the rest of the season.
He rejoined Odd Down in the summer of 2019, netting three goals in six appearances.
His early performances for Odd Down earned him a move to Western League Premier Division club Clevedon Town in August 2019, where he scored 18 goals and assisted 11 over 50 appearances for Mickey Bell’s side.
In July 2021, Jay signed for the Seagulls after impressing in a 2-1 win over an Exeter City XI. Following an impressive first season with the club, he has signed up for a second full season with 2022-2023 looking to be even brighter for the young winger.
