The Terriers’ disappointing campaign ended with them dropping down to League One, where they will now play their football for the first time in 12 years.

The Jackson City academy graduate played 27 times for his side last term as the club finished the campaign second from bottom in the table and six points adrift of safety.

Jackson also spoke about the mental health struggles he had during the season and urged anyone who is suffering to speak up and share their issues.

“I’ve had some time to reflect on the season and I wanted to come on here and say that I’m absolutely disappointed with the way things turned out,” Jackson said in an Instagram post.

“You as fans deserve so much more from us, as well as from me individually. The aim now has to be to bounce back and get the club back where it belongs.
