Jefford Joins Gorleston

Joe Jefford has left Stowmarket Town to join Gorleston.

The defender joined Stow in the summer of 2019, along with fellow centre back Tom Bullard, from Leiston.

The duo formed a strong partnership at the heart of the Stow defence, playing an important role in the unbeaten Premier Division campaign in 2019-20.

Jefford made 46 appearances in all competitions for the Old Gold and Blacks, finding the net on seven occasions.

“We’d like to thank JJ for his contributions since he’s been at the club,” Stow manager Paul Musgrove said.

“He’s been an outstanding individual, dedicated and professional on and off the pitch.

“He’s been a pleasure to work with and we wish him nothing but the best.”

  • Former Stow defender Seb Dunbar, who left the club in March, has rejoined Leiston for the 2021-22 season.
