Jamie Thomas Proctor (born 25 March 1992) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Carlisle United on loan from Bolton Wanderers.


Preston North End[edit]

Proctor is a forward who has played for Swansea City, and Crawley Town.

Born in Ingol, Preston, lifelong Preston North End fan Proctor came through the youth academy at Preston North End.[3] A return of 40 goals in 28 appearances– in his first youth team season of 2008/09 was an excellent start to scholarship life.

On 27 January 2010, Proctor was handed a 2 12-year professional contract.[4] He made his professional début on 2 May 2010, coming on as a substitute against Reading in the 4–1 defeat at the Madejski Stadium.[5]

On 13 August 2010, he joined Stockport County on a 28-day loan aged just 17.[6] The next day, Proctor made his debut, coming on as a substitute, in a 0–0 draw against Wycombe. In September, Proctor's loan spell at Stockport was extended for another month until October.[7] On 28 September 2010, Proctor set up a goal for George Donnelly in a 2–2 draw against Accrington Stanley.[8] He made seven appearances for the club before returning to Preston.[9] He made his first team debut in the final game of the 2009/10 season, coming on as a substitute in the 78th minute away at Reading.[10]

Proctor was on the fringes of the first team squad during the 2010/11 season and had to wait until the last game of the season to score his first senior goal for Preston North End in a 3–1 win against Watford[11]

He played 7 games in 2011 pre-season, scoring 10 goals, including a hat-trick against Fleetwood Town and during the early 2011/12, he featured in a three-man strike-force, consisting of himself and fellow strikers Iain Hume and Neil Mellor. However, all three got injured at one point or another down the line – Proctor's injury being a double hernia.[12] He returned to action before Christmas, but failed to re-create his pre-season and early season form, not scoring again for the rest of the season.

Swansea City[edit]

Proctor attracted interest from Crystal Palace, Blackpool and Swansea City. On 18 August, he signed with Premier League club Swansea City.[13] However, his time at Swansea City was 'frustrating', making no appearances at all in any competition. On 26 October 2012, Proctor joined Shrewsbury Town on a month's loan.[14] The next day, Proctor made his debut, playing 90 minutes, in a 2–2 draw against Colchester United. Proctor would make only four appearances despite his promising debut(three in league and one in FA Cup).

Crawley Town[edit]

Proctor left Swansea City to join Crawley Town in League 1 on 16 January 2013 for an undisclosed fee. Proctor was a regular during his time at Crawley, scoring 15 goals in 60 total appearances. He turned down a contract offer at the end of the 13/14 season leaving him free to move back North and sign for Fleetwood Town.[15]

Fleetwood Town[edit]

On 24 June 2014, Proctor joined League 1 Fleetwood Town on a two-year deal for a free transfer.[16] Proctor joined Bradford City on a one-month loan on 22 January 2016 as part of the transfer deal that saw Devante Cole move to Fleetwood Town for an undisclosed fee.[17] The loan move was made permanent on 1 February 2016 when Proctor signed a deal with City until the end of the 2015–16 season.[18]

Bradford City[edit]

Proctor scored on his debut for Bradford in a 1-1 draw with Port Vale. He then scored his first goals since signing for the club permanently in a 2–1 win against Doncaster Rovers on 12 March.[19] Bradford later went on to secure a place in the League 1 Play Offs with Proctor scoring in the Play Off Semi Final against Millwall.

Bolton Wanderers[edit]

On 5 July 2016, Proctor signed a two-year contract with Bolton Wanderers after joining on a free transfer.[20] Proctor again scored on his debut for his new club- a goal for Bolton in a 4-2 EFL Cup loss against Blackpool on 9 August 2016.[21]
