Club career[edit]

Jamieson was born in Auburn, Sydney. He has previously played for the Blacktown City in the New South Wales Premier League and has also attended Westfields Sports High School before signing for English Premier League side Bolton Wanderers. In the summer of 2007 he made an appearance for Wanderers in their pre-season defeat against Hibernian.

He ended a three-year stint in England with Bolton on 6 June by signing for Adelaide United on a two-year deal.[1] He made his first A-league appearance for Adelaide in the season opener on 17 August 2008 where he played a full game at left back.[2] Since his first game Jamieson has become a mainstay in the United backline contributing significantly in attack and from set plays. Jamieson was named man of the match for his performance in the Club World Cup game against Waitakere United on 11 December 2008. Jamieson capped off what was a terrific A-League debut season picking up the Rising Star Player of the Year award beating the likes of Michael Zullo, James Holland and Tarek Elrich.[3]

Before the start of the 2009–10 A-League season, Jamieson was linked with moves to several Dutch Eredivisie clubs, but declined all offers and stated his preference in staying in Australia for another season.[4]

After the end of the 2009–10 A-League season, he trialled with German second division club Greuther Fürth.[5] Unfortunately the trial was unsuccessful and he returned to Australia undecided on his next move.[6][7]

On 21 May 2010 he was signed to a two-year contract by Sydney FC.[8] Jamieson scored his first goal in the A-League against North Queensland Fury on 14 August 2010 with an unmarked header late in the game.[9]

He was released from Sydney FC after his 2-year contract was not renewed. He announced via his Twitter, that he was moving to Western Australia to play for Perth Glory.[10]

After 3 seasons in Perth, Jamieson signed with Western Sydney Wanderers on May 28 2015. In his first season with the club, Jamieson was named in the PFA Team of the Year. [11]

In August 2016, Jamieson joined Swedish club IFK Göteborg.[12]

International career[edit]

He has represented Australia at U-17 level and was a member of Australia's squad for the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship.

After a string of impressive performances for Adelaide, Jamieson was called into Pim Verbeek's training squad for the match against Qatar in October 2008.[13] Jamieson was once again selected in the Australian squad for an Asian cup qualifying match against Indonesia on 28 January 2009, where he played his first full international for the Australian national team.[14]
