Jed Charlton First Team Second Row Sponsor Available to sponsor - please call 0191 214 2896 Jed Charlton returns to the Thunder ranks for 2020, with the second row putting pen to paper on a new deal that keeps the academy graduate at the club for a second senior season. A product of Gateshead Storm, Charlton captained the Under 19s in 2018 and earned his promotion to the first team ranks after making his debut appearances for the senior side against Oldham, Doncaster and West Wales Raiders. Impressing in those fixtures, Charlton added to his tally this season in the 1895 Cup match against York and has shown he retains plenty of scope to develop further. Having missed only a handful of games since coming onto Thunder’s academy system as an Under 15, he proved to be a mainstay of age grade teams throughout his junior years. An aggressive player, the Northumbria University Student’s first team appearances to date have shown him to be well suited to the demands of League 1 with further evolution expected in the upcoming season.
