Ninth signing for new look Town as striker handed three year deal

Kayden Jackson has become the ninth addition to Paul Hurst’s squad after Town beat off interest from other Championship clubs to sign him from Accrington Stanley for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old striker has penned a three year deal, with the Club having an option on a further 12 months.

Kayden was playing in the North East Counties League before being picked out by then Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio as the winner of a competition that led to him having a year’s pro contract with the Robins.   

He didn’t appear for the first-team and spells followed at Wrexham, Barnsley and Grimsby on loan, where he worked under Paul Hurst, before he joined Accrington in the summer of 2017.

The Bradford born frontman enjoyed the best form of his career last term, scoring 16 goals in 45 League games as Stanley lifted the League Two title.
