Jamie Cassidy (born 21 November 1977 in Liverpool) is an English former footballer who played as a midfielder in the Football League for Cambridge United.[1] He began his career with Liverpool. While at Anfield, he won the FA Youth Cup in 1996, and earned a professional contract, but was released in 1999 without playing a first-team game.[2] He then spent one year at Cambridge United, playing 10 matches in all competitions,[3] before moving into non-league football with Cambridge City,[1] Northwich Victoria and Burscough.[2]

Jamie Carragher recalled in his 2008 autobiography Carra that Cassidy would have been "a certain Liverpool regular", if his development had not been derailed by a damaged cruciate ligament then a broken leg.[4]
