He made his first team debut in August 1988 and was soon attracting scouts from the Saints. Impressed sufficiently in a two-day trial to be offered a loan deal and signed permanently for the club in March 1989 having played just 18 games for City. As Jason established himself at The Dell, and play for the England Under-21 side, City went onto bank around £80,000 including £20,000 for the unusually prescient move of cashing in a sell-on clause. Spent time on loan at Plymouth during the 2004-05 season before ending a 16-year association with the Saints by joining Brighton in May 2005. Switched to Eastleigh in the 2006 close season but was soon back at St Mary's Stadium as first team coach, then assistant caretaker manager. He was released by the Saints in June 2008.
