Bio Extra

A talented midfielder, well respected at Firhill where he clocked up more than 200 appearances, mostly in his first spell in the late 70s and early 80s. Had a good engine and was most often utilised as an attacking midfielder. Could also be deployed as a right wing back (#2) and notably did so in the 1980-81 season. Tommy McLean tempted him to Fir Park in 1984, but he didn’t reproduce the form that he'd shown with Thistle, and he returned to Maryhill in October 1987, at the behest of Billy Lamont. It didn't work out with Thistle second time around and Jamie was freed. He eventually got fixed up again, signing with Dumbarton late in 1988, where he would once again play with his younger brother, Gerry.
