Jamie made his speedway debut at the age of 15 for Rye House.  The following year 2004, he rode for Oxford's  Confererence League Team and went on to win the Championship with them.
He suffered quite a few injuries early in his career including a broken femur and a broken shoulder socket.
He continued riding for a number of tracks including Redcar, Isle of Wight and Workington.  In 2010 he joined Glasgow, his uncle Sean was team manager, he had around 20 meetings for an average of 2.69. The Tigers replaced him in July. He was also an asset of Kings Lynn in their Young Stars team in the National League although he was declared in their squad he was replaced in late April. He returned to Kings Lynn in August in the Premier League side but lost his place at the end of August when Adam Lowe was promoted from the National League side.
In 2011 Leicester promoter David Hemsley bought Jamie's contract to bring him to the Beaumont Park Arena on a full transfer. It made big news at the time because his father Mark was a previous Leicester rider scoring almost 1,000 points for the club when they were at Blackbird Road.
Jamie found the going tough though and was soon replaced by Charles Wright.
Dudley took Jamie on to replace Adam Roynon on 14th August. In his first three home matches with the Heathens he scored 9,5 and 10 points, he was to have another four meetings with Dudley his last meeting on 20th September 2011 against the Birmingham 'Bulls'
