6' 0" tall midfielder born in Uxbridge who started his career as a trainee with Watford. Jamie progressed through the Hornets' junior ranks and played for England's Under-19's side before making his first team debut as an 89th minute substitute in a 4-2 home defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup on 5.1.02. The Gunners' scorers that day included Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp. After one more outing as a substitute Jamie made his full debut in a 1-1 draw at Preston in Division 1 (later the Championship) on 31.1.02 and by the end of the 2001/02 season he'd featured in 11 first team games.

During the 2002/03 campaign James played in another 25 senior matches without scoring for Watford and picked up nine bookings from those outings. He also made a further 25 first team appearances during 2003/04 without scoring.

In August 2004 Jamie was loaned to League Two club Oxford and he made his debut in a 2-0 home win over Shrewsbury on 28.8.04. On 18.9.04 he got his first senior goal in a 6-1 defeat at Yeovil and in all Jamie made 12 appearances and scored twice before going back to Watford in October 2004.

He couldn't break into the Hornets' first team after returning to Vicarage Road and in January 2005 Jamie was loaned to Scottish Premier League club Livingston.

He made his debut for Livingston as a substitute in a 2-1 home win over Morton on 11.1.05 and Jamie's first full appearance was in a 2-0 defeat against visitors Hibernian on 15.1.05. He played nine times (three as sub) without scoring before returning to Watford at the end of the season.

Jamie still couldn't gain a place in Watford's side at the start of 2005/06 and in September 2005 he was loaned to Peterborough.

He made his debut for the Posh as they lost 2-0 at home to Shrewsbury in League Two on 24.9.05 and Jamie made nine more appearances over the course of the next few months. He scored once - in a 2-1 win over visitors Swindon in the Football League Trophy on 22.11.05 - and Jamie was booked in six of his last eight outings for Peterborough before going back to Watford in December 2005.

Shortly after the January 2006 transfer window closed Jamie left Watford having not featured in their senior side since January 2004 and in all he'd made 61 first team appearances without scoring for the Hornets.

After leaving Watford Jamie signed for Fisher who, as a non-league club, were not bound by the regulations of the transfer window. Then without making an appearance for Fisher he was loaned to League Two outfit Northampton for the remainder of the 2005/06 season and there was speculation suggesting that the deal had been brokered to exploit a loophole in the transfer window system, particularly as Fisher manager Justin Edinburgh was a former team-mate of Northampton boss Colin Calderwood.

Jamie made his debut for Northampton as they drew 1-1 with visitors Leyton Orient on 14.2.06 and he went on to make a total of 11 appearances (three as sub) without scoring before the end of the season.

In May 2006 Jamie signed for Chester and made his first appearance as they beat Accrington 2-0 in a League Two game at the Deva Stadium on 5.8.06. He scored his first goal in a 2-1 home defeat against Wrexham on 20.8.06 and by the end of 2006/07 he'd managed four goals from 50 outings in all competitions. Jamie was also booked 13 times.

After making one further appearance for Chester at the start of the 2007/08 campaign Jamie moved on to League Two club Lincoln in August 2007. He made his debut in a 3-1 win at Mansfield on 18.8.07 and made 26 appearances (six as sub) without scoring before being loaned to Conference outfit Oxford United in February 2008.

Jamie's second spell with Oxford lasted until April 2008 and he made 13 league appearances without scoring.

He left Lincoln at the end of the season and in July 2008 Jamie signed for Ebbsfleet. He made his debut as a substitute on 18.8.08 as they won 2-1 in a Conference game at Torquay and after 23 league outings (six as sub) without scoring for the Fleet he linked up with Chelmsford of the Conference South in February 2009.

Jamie scored twice from 18 appearances for Chelmsford before moving on to Conference South outfit Woking at the start of September 2009. He featured as a substitute as they lost 1-0 in an FA Cup tie at Swindon in November 2009.

At the start of March 2010 Jamie joined Southern League Premier Division club Hemel Hempstead and he finished the 2009/10 campaign there.

In the summer of 2010 he moved on to Conference outfit Hayes & Yeading and Jamie scored a goal on his debut in a 2-1 win at Grimsby on 21.8.10. He was sent off in a 3-1 defeat at AFC Wimbledon on 1.1.11 and Jamie finished 2010/11 having scored twice from 40 league appearances. He started the 2011/12 season with Hayes & Yeading too but in September 2011 Jamie was loaned to Luton.

He made his debut for the Conference club in a 2-0 win over Darlington at Kenilworth Road on 10.9.11 and on 15.10.11 Jamie scored twice in a 5-1 home win over Gateshead. He was sent off in a 1-1 draw at his old club Lincoln on 6.12.11 and that was Jamie's last outing for Luton. In all he'd made 13 appearances (two as sub) for the Hatters, scoring two goals.

He then played regularly for Hayes & Yeading again for the remainder of the 2011/12 campaign but on 21.4.12 Jamie was sent off in a 1-0 win at Lincoln - the second time he'd been dismissed against them during the season. In May 2012 Jamie left Hayes & Yeading having scored four goals from a total of 66 Conference outings in his career with the club and a factor in his departure was that he was unhappy about the fine he received for his red card at Lincoln.

In the summer of 2012 Jamie joined Mansfield and made his debut as a late substitute in a 1-0 home win over Hyde in the Conference on 25.8.12 but that turned out to be his only first team appearance for the club.

In November 2012 Jamie was loaned to Eastleigh of the Conference South and then in December 2012 he returned to Hayes & Yeading on loan. Jamie stayed there until February 2013 when a sending off in a 6-2 defeat at Chelmsford in the Conference South ended his second stint with the club.

In March 2013 Jamie joined Margate on loan for the remainder of the 2012/13 season and made his debut in a 3-0 win over Bognor Regis in an Isthmian League Premier Division game at Hartsdown Park on 9.3.13. Margate's website said he "showed some nice touches" in midfield and Jamie started the next nine matches too.

On 23.3.13 he slotted home a last-minute penalty to level the scores as Margate drew 2-2 with visitors Canvey Island but after Jamie had played in a 2-0 defeat at Lewes on 11.4.13 his loan was terminated early. He'd scored once from ten outings for Margate.

Jamie was released by Mansfield at the end of the 2012/13 campaign and in July 2013 he signed for Conference North club Stockport.

In November 2013 he was loaned to Conference outfit Southport.
