Jamie Hamill (born 29 July 1986 in Irvine) is a Scottish footballer who currently plays as a defender for Scottish Premiership club Kilmarnock, after having been released by relegated side Hearts.

Club career[edit]

Kilmarnock[edit]

Hamill made his senior debut on 7 April 2007 in a 1–0 defeat to Hearts[1] and won the fans' Man of the Match award for the game.[citation needed] He started against Hibernian[2] and made two further substitute appearances that season.[3]

At the start of the 2007–08 season his hard work over the summer was rewarded with a start against Celtic, Kilmarnock held the hosts to a 0–0 draw in what was Kilmarnock's first point at Celtic Park in over nine years.[4] He scored his first goal for the club in a Scottish Cup game against Airdrie.,[5] following this up with his second goal in the competition against Celtic in a 5–1 defeat in the next round.[6] Hamill firmly established himself as a member of the first team that season making thirty two league appearances.[7]

Hamill also scored on the opening game of the 2008–09 season, in a home game against Hibernian, which finished 1–0 to Kilmarnock.[8] He repeated the feat in the two following season, scoring the third goal in a 3–0 win against Hamilton[9] and against Rangers in a narrow 2–1 defeat scoring a late consolation penalty.[10] He was sent off for the first time in his career on 29 January 2011 picking up a second yellow in the 29th minute against Hamilton.[11]

In all he made 149 appearances in all competitions for Kilmarnock scoring 19 times.[12]

Hearts[edit]

Hamill signed for Hearts on 25 May 2011,[13] on a three-year contract. He made his competitive debut against Paks in a Europa League qualifier, and scored a penalty in first half stoppage time to secure a 1–1 away draw,[14] with his league debut came on 7 August against Motherwell.[15] Hamill quickly became Hearts new penalty taker in the absence of Kevin Kyle,[16] having scored one in a friendly against Royal Antwerp[17] against Paks and against St. Mirren on 17 September in the league.[18] His first miss from the spot came against St. Johnstone a game Hearts lost 2–1.[19] On 24 December, Hamill was stretchered off during a match against Motherwell,[20] having suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury.[21] Both penalties after his miss were taken by other players and missed with Hamill pledging to return to penalty duties.[22] Towards the end of the 2011–12 season, Hamill suffered a rupture of a cruciate knee ligament.[23] On 19 April 2014, during a 2-0 Scottish Premiership win over Ross County, Hamill was sent off after receiving a second yellow card during a celebration for a penalty goal, in which he was involved in a curious altercation where he was shoved by Ross County player Yann Songo'o - he then barged into Staggies manager Derek Adams on the touchline, resulting in the Ross County boss falling to the floor and Hamill receiving the second yellow card from referee Willie Collum.[24]

Kilmarnock return[edit]

Following Hamill's release by Hearts after their relegation to the Scottish Championship, he rejoined Kilmarnock for a second time, signing a three year contract with the East Ayrshire club on 2 June 2014.[25]

International career[edit]

Hamill made his Scotland U21 debut against Norway on 20 May 2008,[26] going on to score his first international goal against Slovenia on 17 November 2007.[27] On 5 February 2008 he was sent off for a second bookable offence in their 2–1 defeat to Portugal.[28] In all he played for the Scotland U21 team 10 times in 2007 and 2008.[29]
