Biography

Jerren signed from ECM Motown. He went on to play regularly in the side for the rest of the season, collecting a winner’s medal in the Scottish Cup final in May 1994. In season 1994-95 Jerren was top scorer. In August 1995 he signed for FC Zurich in Switzerland for a fee reported at £220,000. In a comment once made more in jest than in earnest, Manager Ivan Golac predicted that Jerren would be worth £15/20m. However, that remark became a millstone around the neck of the player.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Jerren was born on this date in Morvant, Trinidad and Tobago.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Jerren signed from ECM Motown. He went on to play regularly in the side for the rest of the season, collecting a winner’s medal in the Scottish Cup final in May 1994. In season 1994-95 Jerren was top scorer. In August 1995 he signed for FC Zurich in Switzerland for a fee reported at £220,000. In a comment once made more in jest than in earnest, Manager Ivan Golac predicted that Jerren would be worth £15/20m. However, that remark became a millstone around the neck of the player.

  • United had this game more or less won in the opening quarter of an hour by which time they had established a two goal lead against a poor Hearts side.

  • Jerren Nixon was on from the start for the first time and the Trinidad and Tobago striker made it an even more memorable afternoon by scoring the goal which ended almost five years without a victory at Easter Road.

  • The first ever Scottish Cup tie at Broadwood Stadium ended in an emphatic if slightly flattering victory for the holders. There were surprises in the line-up for the near three thousand supporters who travelled through to Cumbernauld for United's first ever visit to Broadwood. There was no starting place for Saturday's hero Jerren Nixon because of a knock he took. David Craig, starting a match for the first time was his surprise replacement. Christian Dailly, who was a star in defence at Ibrox remained in that role, whilst Dragutin Ristic returned to first team action for the first time since October 22nd.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 1 Hibernian

    To compensate for the suspended trio, manager Billy Kirkwood brought in Andy McLaren and Robbie Winters up front, whilst Grant Johnson returned to the midfield to play his first game of 1995.
