Jaime Bryant Piet Peters (born 4 May 1987) is a Canadian football player who plays as a right wingback and is currently without a club.

In 2003, Peters joined the youth set-up at German club 1. FC Kaiserslautern. Two years later, he rejected offers from Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United,[3] opting instead for Ipswich Town on recommendation by former Canada coach Frank Yallop, where he received the most improved player award in the 2006–07 season.

He joined Gillingham on a one month loan in the January 2009 transfer window,[4] and made his debut on 24 January as a substitute in a 1–0 home win over Exeter City. While at Gillingham Peters was able to join fellow Canadian international Simeon Jackson who scored 14 league goals that season. After three appearances, he returned to Ipswich and played his first 2008–09 game for the club in the 3–2 derby win over Norwich City on 19 April, coming on as a substitute for the injured Ben Thatcher.

As Peters returned to Ipswich from his various loans spells in mid-2009, newly appointed manager Roy Keane experimented Peters at right back. This test worked out pushing the previously struggling winger into the first team, Peters partaking in the first 15 matches of the 2010/2011 season.[5] Peters scored his first goal of the campaign against Scunthorpe United on September 25, the game ended in a 1-1 away draw.[6] However Peters had his strongest performance as a Tractor Boy in the first game after Keane was sacked. It came in the League Cup Semi-Final first leg against Arsenal on January 12, 2011. Peters marked Andrei Arshavin so well it forced Arsène Wenger to sub the Russian Winger out in the second half, Ipswich won the game 1-0.[7] Following the hire of Paul Jewell as manager in early January Peters began to struggle for first team selection, during a span of 14 league matches Peters was only given one game playing for 12 minutes against Doncaster Rovers.

Peters made his 2011/12 season debut in the League Cup against Northampton Town on August 9, losing the game 2-1. However Peters' struggle for playing time continued from last season failing to play another minute until he was loaned out in late September to Bournemouth in League One. The loan deal was for a one month however manager Lee Bradbury was impressed with Peters and was able to have the deal extended for a second month.[8] Peters returned to Ipswich in early December after a failed attempt of extending the loan deal, he made 8 league and 2 cup appearances while on loan.[9] Peters would be told by Paul Jewell that he was not in his plans for the 2012/13 season and he was formally released from his contract by mutual consent on 23 August 2012.

After formally leaving Ipswich Peters went on an extended trial with Yeovil Town of England's Football Championship.

In January 2013, Peters went on trial with Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps FC in his native Canada. He was released in mid-February.[10]


Peters played for the Canadian U20 team at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship and was an ambassador and a member of the U20 Canadian squad in the 2007 FIFA World Youth Championship, held in Canada.

He made his senior Canadian national team debut in August 2004 at the age of 17 against Guatemala. As of 23 December 2009, he has played 21 times for Canada scoring once. He has so far represented Canada in 5 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[11] and at the 2005 and 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cups. He scored his first goal for Canada in a friendly against Panama on 4 June 2008.[12]
