Jamie Burchell (born 15 November 1979 in Worcester, England) is a retired former British professional basketball player, who most notably played for the Plymouth Raiders in the British Basketball League.[1]

The 6ft5 Forward was educated at The Royal Grammar School, Worcester and later at Marjon's, where he won a BUCS National Championship and represented England Universities. Burchell ended his career at Plymouth Raiders in the Summer of 2013 after representing the club for nearly 15 years. An Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury in February 2011 essentially ended his career, although he would take part in the BBL 2012/2013 campaign. He had previously donned the green vest from 1999–2002, before returning in 2003 following a spell at Chester Jets. Jamie also played for Solihull Chiefs during the 1998/99 season.

Jamie continues his community work as Plymouth Raiders Head of Schools and Development. This work includes basketball coaching and classroom mentoring, holiday camps and Raiders pre-game clinics.

He currently lives with his wife Catherine in the Mutley area of Plymouth. Their son, Ashley was born on May 26th 2012.
