Jacob Heads To Gateshead On Loan

20 August 2021

Young left-back Matty Jacob will spend the first half of the 2021/22 season on loan with National League North side Gateshead.

The 20-year-old has been with Hull City since Under-9s level and penned a new one-year deal with the Tigers in May.

The Barnsley-born defender also featured in the first-team’s pre-season friendlies against Mansfield and Sunderland, providing an assist with a pinpoint cross for Josh Magennis against the Stags.

Gateshead, managed by former Newcastle centre-back Mike Williamson, begin their league campaign with a home match against Kettering tomorrow – and Jacob is eligible to feature.

We wish Matty, and Gateshead, all the best for the season ahead.
