Jackson, 30, who has worn the green and white hoops for 24 years having started as a minis player, has already cemented his place in the annals of club history during a landmark 13th season of first team rugby.

He is Nottingham Rugby's all-time league appearance record holder and became the first player in over a decade to feature in more than 300 games and score more than 100 career tries for the club.

Jackson's current deal was due to expire at the end of the season.

"It was an easy decision for me - I've been part of the Green and Whites' first team for 13 seasons now and love representing the club," Jackson said.

"I'm thrilled that I will continue to play my rugby for Nottingham.

"My passion for Nottingham Rugby has never changed, the only thing that has changed is that I get a little bit older every time I sign a new deal.

"The statistics that come with being a one-club man are nice and make for interesting reading, but I get my satisfaction from being part of the team."

The versatile back has been a key figure for Martin Haag's high-flyers, who sit second in the league and are through to the quarter-finals of the British and Irish Cup.

Jackson has touched down nine times in 20 appearances in all competitions this term.

"It is exciting times at Meadow Lane right now and this means I can focus all my attention on the field," Jackson said.

"There is still a lot to look forward to this season and what might happen after that.

"We don't know where we will finish up, with so many big games still to come in the league and the race for the play-offs really heating up.

"All I want to do is help this club progress because that is where I get all my enjoyment - producing my best to get results for the Green and Whites."

Haag said he is delighted by the new deal: "I'm very pleased that Jacko has extended his stay, he is a stalwart of the club and a part of our leadership group.

"After all these years he continues to produce the highest standards, is as fit as ever and his character and ethos represent what we are trying to achieve here at Nottingham."
