Jamie McMaster (born 29 November 1982) is an Australian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for the Sutherland Sharks in the NSW Premier League.

Despite being born in Sydney, Australia, McMaster represented England at U18 and U20 levels before successfully requesting to be eligible for the Australian national team.

Early life[edit]

McMaster grew up in Gosford, a region on the Central Coast, and played football for Umina United.

Playing career[edit]


He began his professional career at Premier League club Leeds United in 1999 as a 16-year-old where he joined Harry Kewell and Mark Viduka in the fleet of Australians in the squad but committed his international future to England.

While at Leeds he began to be loaned around to smaller clubs within England. He was loaned to Coventry City in 2002 during the January transfer market, returned to Leeds in 2002 before being loaned to Swindon Town in the January transfer market for the remainder of the 2003–04 season, scoring once against Stockport County.[3] Upon returning to Leeds for the 2004–05 season he was once again loaned, this time to Chesterfield for the entire season. At Chesterfield he scored twice, with goals against QPR[4] and Peterborough United.[5]

McMaster once again returned this time to Peterborough United. McMaster then requested he be transferred from Leeds while still on loan at Peterborough. He played a few games for Leeds early on in Leeds first season in the championship after being relegated from the Premier League. Following transfer negotiations McMaster moved to AGF Aarhus in Denmark for a very brief period of time before returning home and playing for the Central Coast Mariners in the A-League, where he remained until 2007.


He has been capped for England at under 18 and under 20 level.[6]

In 2005, FIFA approved a request made by McMaster to be eligible for selection in the Australia national soccer team.[7]
