An energetic presence at full-back, Jake signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with United during the January 2017 transfer window.
Aged 26, he played his early football with St. Patrick’s Athletic, racking up more than 50 appearances and claiming a League of Ireland Premier Division winners medal. Former Republic of Ireland Under-18 international Jake moved to Huddersfield in 2013 and initially became a regular in the Town starting eleven, but was subsequently loaned to Bury and Scottish Premiership side Partick Thistle. He switched to Hartlepool midway through the 2015 close season, making the left-back spot his own during 73 games for the Victoria Park club, before opting for a move south to join the U’s. He has since made over 50 appearances.
