Jamie joined Rochdale at the age of eight, rising through each of the junior ranks at Spotland before becoming a first-team regular.

Jamie’s talents were quickly recognised by Rochdale management and he was nominated for League Two’s Apprentice of the Year award in 2013, just prior to signing his first professional deal with the club. His professional debut quickly followed against Port Vale in the Football League Trophy, and his Football League debut was not far behind against Newport County, where he almost scored his maiden senior goal. His first season was capped with promotion to League One, and over the following three seasons Jamie more than played his part in Dale consolidating their place in the third tier. He also became one of Rochdale’s youngest captains, having taken on the armband during 2015. Over his time at Rochdale, Jamie played just under 150 times, scoring 11 times. Jamie was a deadline day signing from Rochdale for Burton Albion in the summer of 2017, a three-year deal and an undisclosed fee securing his services. His first goal for The Brewers came away at Barnsley in the 2017-18 season, winning him the Goal of the Season Award for that season. He also won the very same award the following season for his goal away at AFC Wimbledon.
