#WelcomeJebb | Interview
Wealdstone Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Jack Jebb from Welling United for an undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old technical midfielder signed for National League South rivals Welling United in 2017 after prior experience in the Football League and the National League.
Jebb began his career in Arsenal's youth academy before signing his first professional contract with the Gunners in 2012.
The midfielder then spent multiple spells with Stevenage, with two periods on loan earning him a permanent deal in 2015.
After being released at the end of the 2015-16 season, Jebb joined League Two side Newport County on a short-term deal in November 2016.
Jebb was released in January 2017 and joined National League Sutton United a month later before his two-year spell at Park View Road with Welling United.
The creative midfielder also made multiple appearances and scored two goals for the England Under-16's and Under-17's.
Our new signing will be available for selection for Saturday’s National League South fixture against Eastbourne Borough.
