GET TO KNOW | Jack Marriott

The 29-year-old put pen to paper with Wrexham today

1 February 2024

Boasting over one hundred career goals, Jack Marriott joined Wrexham AFC to bolster Phil Parkinson’s attacking options.

Since his debut for Ipswich Town against Burnley in 2013, Marriott has played for ten clubs, spending time in the National League all the way to the Championship. 

The Beverley-born forward is well known for his two vital goals in the Championship Play-Off Semi-Final in 2019. 

On that day, Marriott was subbed on by Derby County manager Frank Lampard, as they trailed by two goals on aggregate to Leeds United.  

With his first touch, Marriott halved the deficit, before winning the game in the 85th minute with an acute chip into the back of Kiko Casilla’s net. 

Marriott would go on to score in the Championship Play-Off Final, but only as a consolation, as Aston Villa secured promotion to the Premier League on that occasion. 

He spent three seasons in the Championship with the Rams, before teaming-up with Sheffield Wednesday on loan and then re-joining Peterborough to cap off five years in the second division

Despite scoring nine goals in England's second highest division, Marriott and the Posh were relegated to League One.

Marriott’s standout season was in 2016/17 during his first spell with Peterborough, as he netted 27 goals. The impressive campaign saw him named as the Posh’s Player of the Season, as well as being included in the PFA’s Team of the Year for League One. 

Picking up such personal accolades had become a habit for Marriott, as two years prior, he won Luton Town’s Player of the Season as a youngster. 

During his time at Kenilworth Road, he made 80 appearances, netting 14 times in League Two with the Hatters. 

Marriott’s two year period with Luton Town came as the first permanent transfer of his career, with the forward starting his tenure in Suffolk with Ipswich Town. 

It was with the Tractor Boys that Marriott gained first team experience, via six loan spells at Gillingham, Carlisle, Colchester and three separate stints at Woking. 

At the age of 28, Marriott moved to the north-west coast to lead the line for Fleetwood Town. The striker has bagged five goals in Sky Bet League One this season, and will be hoping to continue his goal scoring form for Wrexham’s promotion push and beyond.
