Jamie Iain Young (born 25 August 1985 in Brisbane) is an Australian-English football goalkeeper who plays for A-League side Brisbane Roar.

Early life[edit]

He is of Indian and Scottish descent.[1]

Club career[edit]

Having grown up in Australia, he attended Padua College, where he played in the First XI as Goalkeeper and also played at Albany Creek at club level. Young moved to England in 2002 to play professional football for Reading. After failing to break into the first team, he was released by Reading on 8 May 2006, and subsequently signed a one-year deal with Wycombe Wanderers on 2 August 2006.

He missed much of the 2007–08 season with a knee injury, but regained fitness by the end of the season.[2] His contract was cancelled by mutual consent in January 2010 after he was informed that he would not be offered a new contract in the summer. He was signed on a non-contract basis by Aldershot Town of League Two on 11 March 2010 as cover for goalkeeper Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz.[3]

After impressing and establishing himself as the first choice goalkeeper, in the last quarter of the 2009–10 season, where Aldershot Town qualified for the League Two play-offs, Young signed a one-year contract with the club in June 2010. With the arrival of new goalkeeper Ross Worner in the 2011–12 season, Young was demoted to second choice goalkeeper but still managed to make a number of appearances in the later stage of the season when Worner was ruled out with a back injury. On 24 June 2012, Young signed a one-year contract to keep him with Aldershot until 2013.[4]

Young left Aldershot in June 2013 after the club were relegated from the Football League and placed in administration.[5] He played on game for Basingstoke Town in September as cover for their regular goalkeeper before joining fellow Conference South side Whitehawk the following month.[6][7] After making only one appearance he moved again, this time joining Hayes & Yeading United.[8] After making 10 appearances for Hayes & Yeading during its 2013–14 Conference South campaign, Young was released by manager Phil Babb following an on-field altercation with a team-mate in a 2–0 defeat to Bath City.[9][10]

On 10 May 2014, it was reported that Young would return to his hometown to join A-League defending champion Brisbane Roar for the 2014–15 season.[11][12]

International career[edit]

Although born in Australia, Young has elected to play for England internationally, having been capped for the U20 team to date.[13]
