Career[edit]

Rotherham United[edit]

Green was brought through the ranks at his home town club Rotherham United in 2007. During his first season with United he broke through into the first team after some impressive performances in the reserves and he went on to finish with nine appearances and he scored one goal against Barnet on the final day of the 2007-08 season, it was also the last ever goal scored at Rotherham's historic home ground Millmoor. The following season Jamie became first choice left-back for the Millers, His second goal for the Millers in the 2-0 win over Gillingham at the Don Valley Stadium, was a great run and a fierce drive to seal the game. Jamie broke into the first team after a leg break to defender Stephen Brogan and made his debut as a substitute away in the 1-0 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers in February 2008. In May 2008 he was given a new one-year deal.[2]

At the end of the 2010/2011 campaign he joined Conference North side Boston United on a short term loan spell where he went on to score once in five appearances. He returned to Rotherham in May and was released following the end of his contract. During the summer Green went on trial with Bradford City in preparation for the 2011/2012 season but failed in his quest to earn a contract.

Grimsby Town[edit]

On 31 August 2011, the English transfer deadline day, Green signed with Conference National side Grimsby Town on non-contract basis.[3] Green managed to dislodge regular left back Lee Ridley from the first team and did enough to earn himself a short term contract. However following a series of injuries the club temporarily released him from his contract in order to recover. Grimsby opted to keep hold of his registration during this time and moved to sign Hull City left back Conor Townsend as a replacement.[4]

Non-league[edit]

Green signed with Rossington Main in February 2012 on non-contract terms.[5] In January 2013 he signed for Worksop Parramore. A month later Green moved to Buxton.[6]

Personal life[edit]

He is also a qualified physiotherapist having graduated from the University of Salford in 2016.[7]
