Yeovil Town have completed their second transfer deadline day signing with the capture of Derby County defender Jamie Vincent. The 30 year old player severed his contract at Pride Park today and immediately signed a deal at Huish Park until the end of this season. He is a left-sided defender who joined Derby in January 2004 from Portsmouth. He was born on 18th June 1975 in London.
Vincent's footballing career is to say the least a lengthy one, having started his time with Crystal Palace in 1993. After a loan spell with Bournemouth, he joined them permanently for 25,000, making over 100 appearances for the Cherries across 2.5 years. In 1999, a 500,000 pound move saw him head to Huddersfield Town and in 2001, he saw an 800,000 pound move to Portsmouth go through. Whilst at Portsmouth, Jamie had a loan spell at Walsall.
Jamie had been enjoying a regular run in Derby's side, but firstly a thigh injury then a calf injury saw him sidelined and knocked out of the Rams team. As a result, the 2005/06 season saw him placed immediately on loan to Millwall where he played against Yeovil Town in this season's 2-1 defeat for the Glovers with the left-back playing the full 90 minutes on that night.
Jamie has played roughly 339 games at Football League level and it is this level of experience that Glovers boss Steve Thompson says will make a difference explaining: "We are hoping Jamie will bring that extra bit of experience and quality to the squad."
The best of luck to Jamie and Ciderspace hopes that his stay with the Glovers turns into a successful one that extends beyond the end of this season.
