Jefferson made his Diamonds debut in the 2-1 victory over Histon on 14 November 2009, and scored his debut goal in his next game, against Cambridge United. He played for the club until the end of the 2009 / 2010 season when his loan expired. He was released by Crawley Town and on 9 June 2010, he joined Conference North side Gainsborough Trinity. On 8 October 2010, he went on a three month loan with Darlington with a view to a permanent deal, but this fell through and he returned to Trinity in January, where he was released. After playing a single game for Weymouth, on 21 January 2011, he joined Conference side Hayes & Yeadingon a deal until the end of the season, but was released by mutual consent on 10 March 2011, joining Conference South side Maidenhead United the following day for the remainder of the season. In July 2011, he joined Southern League Premier side Brackley Town. He was released by Brackley after some six months, and signed for Conference side Lincoln City on 31 January 2012 until the end of the season. On 11 June 2012, his former manager at Nene Park, Justin Edinburgh, brought him to NewportCounty on a one year deal.  He scored in both of the opening games for the Exiles, but failed to find the net in his next 15 appearances and was made available for a move away. On 22 November 2012, Jefferson joined Isthmian Premier side Whitehawk on a loan deal until 1 January 2013, with a view to a permanent move but this failed to materialise, and he was released by Newport.
