Jack Spong joins up with Queen’s Park

Queen’s Park’s Director of Football Marijn Beuker’s persistence has paid off handsomely as midfield ‘architect’ Jack Spong has agreed to join the Spiders on a two-year contract from English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion and will officially joins us on July 1

The 21-year-old, who was born in Surrey, joined the Seagulls aged 10 from his local Sunday team Crawley United and made his first team debut, when Graham Potter was in charge at the Amex, in a League Cup tie against Aston Villa in September 2019.

A loan period at Crawley Town last season saw Jack gain further senior experience with his performances picked up in Glasgow by Director of Football Beuker who said: “We have been intensively following Jack for the last few months and we are very happy we have been able to sign him. He comes from a really good football background at Brighton and has developed into a very intelligent and calm midfielder.

“Jack can read the game extremely well and has a very good eye for space on the pitch. We were looking for a player that can play as an ‘architect’ in front of our defence and believe that Jack fits that profile very well.

“Our persistence in following him has paid off.”

Despite this being his first stint in Scottish Football Jack is well-versed in the game on this side of the border as he said: “There is so much history to this club – this is where football started. I like the direction Queen’s Park want to go in and hopefully this season we can meet our targets.

“With the staff the club has appointed recently I am really excited to learn as much as I can off them. I am looking forward to getting started. I have been welcomed very well by the people here and I cannot wait to get out on the training pitch to start working hard with the boys.”
