Manchester United, Bolton Wanderers, Accrington Stanley
Jay started out as a trainee at Old Trafford before moving on to Bolton Wanderers on 2010. He progressed through the Under-18, Under-21 and reserve team levels with Wanderers and during the 2011/2012 season was an unused substitute in three Premier League matches.
Signed on non-contract terms with League two side Accrington Stanley, making his debut as substitute during the game at Shrewsbury Town. Started the next game - a 2-2 draw with Luton Town, putting in a man-of-the-match performance.
With Stanley signing a keeper on loan from QPR Jay was released by mutual consent and signed for Salford in September 2014. It was soon apparent that The Ammies had a keeper of real quality and a string of clean-sheets and top-drawer performances established the club at the top of Division One North.
A serious arm injury kept Jay out of action for three months and it was no coincident that the team's form dipped during that time. He was back for the crunch game versus Darlington in January 2015 and kept another clean sheet as The Ammies ran out 2-0 winners.
Another great run of form provided the bedrock for Salford's successful assault on the divisional title and the club were delighted to secure Jay's services for the 2015-2016 campaign.
That faith was fully justified as Jay was a vital part of the side that secured promotion via the Premier Division play-offs in April 2016 and made it all the way to the Second Round proper of the FA Cup.
Hugely popular with the club's supporters and voted into the Northern Premier League Premier Division's team of the season , Jay will form the last line of Salford defence during the club's inaugural season at National League level.
