A young full-back who has played for County Londonderry and Northern Ireland at the Milk Cup, Dean Jarvis agreed a move from his native Derry to Aberdeen in December 2008. A regular in the Northern Ireland youth sides, he was elevated to the Under-21 set-up in 2009 while just seventeen years-old. He graduated from Aberdeen's Youth and Reserve teams to make his firstteam debut as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat by Inverness Caledonian Thistle in October 2010, taking the field alongside Rory McArdle and Josh Magennis. He was released at the end of the season and joined IFA Championship One side Institute early in the following campaign. His impressive form quickly brought him back to the attentions of cross-channel clubs, but an anticipated move during the January 2013 transfer window never materialised. Come the end of the season he signed for Derry City.

As a teenager Jarvis was a North-West, Ulster and All-Ireland boxing champion.

Anyone looking for a quality left-back/central defender, this is your man.
Good intelligent footballer, just look how well Institute have done since signing him
