We are delighted to announce that Jay Foulston is the latest player to sign up to the Peacocks for the 2021-22 season. The 20 year old left back joined us during last summer following his departure from Newport County.

Jay told tauntontown.com: “I’m buzzing to have re-signed for Taunton who are a great club and share my ambitions to progress. I think we showed some of our potential last season so I’m really looking forward to the new one as the squad is looking strong and hopefully, we can have a full season and a successful year.”

Foulston is a product of the Newport County Academy and made his first team debut as a 16 year old substitute. Loan spells followed at Merthyr Town and Chippenham Town, where he played every game in the National League South in 2019-20. He was also an ever-present for the Peacocks in the truncated last campaign, but his quality was evident, and he finished up winning the October Player Of The Month award.

Head of Football Rob Dray added:” Jay is a huge talent, and will no doubt go onto greater things but very pleased that he has committed to us. He is also the happiest kid, always smiling and his left foot is like a dream, only second to mine! J
