Country

Australia

A likeable young Australian goalkeeper, Jamie Young arrived at Reading in 2003.

He only made one substitute appearance for the Royals, coming on as a 56th minute substitute for Marcus Hahnemann in a goalless draw with Stoke at Madejski Stadium in March 2004, but he provided stern competition for his first team compatriots throughout his stay in Reading, making a lot of friends along the way with his mild-mannered happy-to-help attitude.

The Brisbane-born stopper made most of his appearances during three years between the posts at Aldershot, after a spell with Wycombe Wanderers directly after leaving the newly-promoted Royals in 2006.

He impressed within the first team at Aldershot, the club subsequently reaching the play-offs in the 2009/10 season. And, despite his Aussie roots, Young made a number of youth appearances for various England outfits after arriving in this country back in 2002.

He left Aldershot in June 2013 after the club were placed in administration and relegated from the Football league.

Spells with Basingstoke and Hayes & Yeading United followed this before Young moved back down under in 2014. Having returned to his hometown he joined up with A-League side Brisbane Roar for the 2014/15 season.
