Jamie Hoyland began his career at Manchester City for whom he
made two appearances. When he was given a free transfer, he attempted
to restart his career with Norwich. On May 21st 1986, he played
for the Canaries Reserves at Wymondham Town in their Centenary
Cup. Although Norwich won 3-1, Jamie was not taken on and he joined
Bury making 172 appearances for them scoring 35 goals.
He then joined Sheffield United (89 games, 6 goals) before having
a spell on loan to Bristol City (6 games). He joined Burnley whom
he later captained and made 87 appearances for them before being
released at the end of the 1997/98 season. Although he was linked
with moves to Carlisle and Shrewsbury, he joined Scarborough as
their new player-coach.
On 25th July 1999, the People speculated that Jamie would
quit relegated Scarborough to join Hull City. The December 1999
edition of Team Talk reported that Jamie had joined rival
Conference side Altrincham on a free transfer. In March 2001,
Jamie was appointed youth development officer at 3rd Division
Rochdale. He was promoted to Assistant Manager in June 2002.
Changes at Spotland saw Jamie demoted to a coaching role. In
March 2004, he joined UniBond League First Division club Rossendale
United as assistant to manager Jim McCluskie. Former Ossett Town
boss Gary Brooks, who had filled the role, asked to step down
due to increased demands on his time at work within the prison
service. Jamie has since left his coaching duties at Rochdale.
As of September 2010, Jamie was Youth Team Manager at Preston.
