Jamie Ewings (born 4 August 1984 in Bellshill) is a Scottish footballer currently playing for Dumbarton in the Scottish Championship, where he is also the club's goalkeeping coach.[1]

Career[edit]

Ewings began his career at Motherwell but left the club in 2005 without making a first-team appearance. From there he moved to Albion Rovers.[2] In 2007, he left Albion Rovers for a scholarship in the USA.[3][4]

In February 2008, Ewings signed for League of Ireland club Drogheda United on a one-year contract.[5] During his time at Drogheda he played as the club took on Dynamo Kiev in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers,[6] but his stay there ended in disappointment with the club experiencing financial problems.[4]

Ewings then returned to Scotland for a second spell at Albion Rovers.[7] On 19 June 2010, he then moved to Alloa Athletic.[8]

On 4 June 2011 Ewings signed for Dumbarton.[9] In April 2012, he spent time on loan at junior club Arthurlie.[10] Ahead of the 2013–14 season, Ewings signed a new one-year contract with Dumbarton.[11] On 16 May 2014 Ewings committed himself to Dumbarton, signing a new one-year deal.[12] Exactly a year later he signed on for another year at the Rock.[13]

He made his first appearance for the club in 14 months keeping a clean sheet a 0–0 draw with Raith Rovers in January 2016, and became the club's first choice goalkeeper for the remainder of the season.[14] He signed a new one-year deal with the club in May 2016, taking him into his sixth season with the club[15]

He missed the first seven months of the 2016-17 season after picking up a serious back injury, and failed to make a competitive appearance for the club all season due to the form of Alan Martin. With Martin leaving that summer he was rewarded with a new deal in May 2017, taking into his 7th season with the Sons.[16] In June 2017 it was announced that he would also become the club's new goalkeeping coach.[17]
