Yeovil Town completed the signing of former Glasgow Rangers striker Jamie Burrows on July 3rd 2015. He is a former St Paul's (Jersey) player who starred for their Under-16 side, before being offered a two year contract with the Scottish giants in August 2011, following a two week trial. Rangers later upgraded that youth development contract into a full professional deal, as he stayed in Glasgow for four years.
Born in Saint Helier, Jersey on March 24th 1995, prior to joining the Glovers he spent four seasons rising up through the Rangers youth ranks, starting off in their Under-17 set-up, and became a regular in their Under-20 and Reserve team line-ups, although never made it as far as their first team. He was part of the Rangers side that reached the semi-finals of the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens in 2013 and represented them again in 2014. Injury curtailed his development somewhat, with a hernia operation putting him out shortly after he graduated to the Under-20 set-up, whilst the 2014-15 campaign was a near write-off, spending six months out with a broken leg and a dislocated ankle.
In happier times, he was part of the Rangers side that won the SFA Youth Cup in 2013-14, and scored the winning goal for Rangers in the 2014-15 semi-final that took them through to a second consecutive final appearance - unfortunately his final match for the club was a defeat against arch-rivals Celtic, meaning that he only collected a losers medal that season. He was a regular goalscorer at youth level, as the goalclip video below shows. He is blessed with plenty of pace and attacking intent, and is capable of scoring with both feet.
Jamie signed a one year contract with the club, keeping him at Huish Park until the summer of 2016.
