Versatile left-footer Jackson became Charlton's third summer signing when the free agent returned to the club in early July 2010.

The 29-year-old, who can operate at left-back, left midfield or in the middle of the park, spent a month at The Valley the previous season when he was recruited following an injury to Grant Basey.

He played four games for the Addicks before tearing his hamstring against Stockport County in early March and returning to parent club Notts County.

Jackson recovered to play a part in the Magpies' surge to promotion, netting the first goal in a 5-0 win at Darlington on April 27th which clinched the League Two title, but was released from his contract in the East Midlands due to personal reasons.

It was at Colchester United that Jackson established himself after joining the Essex side for a second spell in 2006. He made 115 appearances for the club and was named player of the year in 2008.

A former Tottenham Hotspur youth product, Jackson made 24 appearances for the White Hart Lane club and netted his first goal in senior football against the Addicks at The Valley in February 2004
