Experienced goalkeeper Jason first joined City during the summer of 2011 from Blue Square South side Eastleigh. After spending two years up to his 16th birthday with Bristol Rovers’ Centre of Excellence at Millfield School he joined Western League Welton Rovers before moving onto Salisbury City in 1997. After a season with the Whites he had a short spell at Nuneaton Borough then spent a year with Exeter City, his one taste of league football. He only made 12 first team appearances though and after spells at Aberystwyth and Clevedon, he joined up again with his former Salisbury boss Geoff Butler. This time he was managing Weymouth and for Jason it was a move that lasted six years, although Butler was gone within a year. Whilst with the Terras he was part of the side that won the Conference South and was knocking on the door of the Football League before the money ran out. He played over 200 games there, and achieved the rare feat of scoring a goal from open play when his clearance found the Southport net in March 2007. He moved on to Eastleigh in March 2008 and spent just over three seasons there, clocking up another 150 or so appearances before joining City. He was mainly no.2 to Glyn Garner but did make 13 starts before moving on to Dorchester Town in May 2012. Jason returned to Weymouth a year later and within six months has become player-manager. He kept this role until May 2017 when he left to spend a season on the coaching staff with Chippenham Town. In May 2018 he returned to Twerton Park as goalkeeper coach.
