Thomas Jebb joins Forrestfield United
November 5, 2017
Forrestfield United are very excited to announce the signing of Thomas Jebb who started his playing career at the club.
At 13 he was identified and recruited by the NTC program headed by Kenny Lowe where he spent 2 years before joining Perth Glory FC where he was coached by Bobby Despotovski for 3 years. This paved the way for him to join the first team squad at Perth SC from where he joins FUSC.
Head Coach, Rod Banjac said, “Tom has also represented the state of Western Australia for three consecutive years as well as Australia at international level. Jebb has now completed full circle by coming back to where it all started for the very talented midfielder and we are very excited about that.”
Rod added, “His services were in high demand before he decided to further his career at Hartfield Park and help “The Mighty Forrie” make an impact at NPL level.”
When asked “Why did he join Forrie?”, despite being in such high demand, Tom replied, “Coming back to Forrestfield United was the only option for me. I played here as a junior with lots of success making friends with the players and coaching staff who I am still close with today. It’s my local team and being a hills boy, when the opportunity arose to come back to my home team I had to take it. I am keen to prove myself as a young player in the big league and show what I have to offer to the hundreds of Forry locals and fans who come and support the team. Playing in front of a home crowd who are so lively, passionate and energetic is also something to look forward to, as without them there would be no Forrestfield United”.
It’s great to have such a talented young player back at the club where it all started, but what will be the ambitions for the year ahead?
Tom said, “FUSC plays an exciting brand of football, has a fantastic squad full of talent and obviously I’m fully focused on cementing a spot in the starting 11 and play football with consistency. I am a very competitive person and following my conversations with Rod there is no doubt that the style of football is suited to myself, I’ll be able to express myself and showcase my skills while contributing to the team. My ambition is for us to win as many games as possible and I intend to give it all as my childhood club takes the league by storm.
From all at Forrestfield United, welcome back Tom.
