Jamie Mitchell

Jamie Mitchell
Norwich Career: Youth / Reserves (1994-96)
Current Club: Wroxham (Ridgeons League)
Date of Birth: 06/11/1976 (Glasgow) 
Nationality: Scottish


Glasgow born midfielder Jamie Mitchell was first spotted by Norwich City playing in the Canary Cup. He joined Norwich as an apprentice and made numerous appearances for the Youth and Reserve teams.

Released in the summer of 1996, he joined Scarborough then managed by former Norwich assistant manager Mick Wadsworth. He played 43 league games in his debut season scoring 7 goals. He was freed by the club in the summer of 1998.

According to the impressive Football News website, Jamie returned home and joined Clyde. He made 6 appearances for them in the 1998/99 season. The following season saw 24 appearances (4 goals) whilst 2000/01 saw 2 goals in 27 appearances. The Scottish Football website reported in May 2002 that Jamie was a target for Partick Thistle, newly promoted to the Scottish Premier League. This speculation materialised into a Bosman move for Jamie to Partick in mid-May 2002

In April 2005 Jamie took the blame for a trip to the pub that has led to two of his team-mates being sacked. Manager Dick Campbell also put Mitchell on the transfer list and has warned the rest of his squad against indiscipline. But Mitchell told Glasgow's Evening Times: "I take full responsibility."Mitchell says he had asked Stevie Fulton and Andy Dowie to the pub to discuss problems in his personal life after the three were dropped.The trio had left Stark's Park 20 minutes before kick-off after being left out the team to face Raith Rovers. "The truth is that the last two months of my life have been ruined by family illness and it has got to me," said Mitchell, whose season has also been hampered by personal illness and injury. "I want to have 11 players here who are committed to the club in every game" said Thistle manager Dick Campbell

In the summer of 2005, Jamie received the sad news that he is suffering from a degeneration of the hip joint and was advised to stop playing professional football immediately. Returning to Norfolk, Jamie signed for non-leaguers Wroxham in early August 2005 making his debut for them against Mildenhall on 13th August 2005.
