Biography


A Scotland schools, Under-16 and youth international by the time he started playing in the United reserve side in 1996-97, Jim was a product of the youth system at Tannadice and was part of the United team that won the Youth League that season. By May 1997, he was involved with the Scotland Under-21's, and that summer he had his first introduction to the first team with an appearance in the clubs pre-season tour of Sweden.

He had to wait a year to make his competitive debut, as a substitute against Motherwell in August 1998. Having started his career as a talented defender, Jim was pushed further up the park under manager Paul Sturrock and was establishing himself in the first team squad as a left winger when a broken leg side-lined him in November 1999. Fully recovered for the next campaign, he was unlucky enough to break the same leg early in the season and was ruled out until the end of 2000-01. He had two seasons as a regular in the line-up, with the 2002-03 season being his best turn-out in a United shirt but was used less often in 2003-04 under Ian McCall and was released by the Club at the end of that campaign.

He signed for Motherwell in July 2004 and collected a League Cup runners-up medal in 2005. He left Fir Park in 2008 and re-joined former boss Paul Sturrock at Plymouth Argyle. A three-month loan spell with Aberdeen in 2010 was ended abruptly due to injury, and he was released from Home Park a year later. In August 2011 he signed for League of Ireland champions Shamrock Rovers, playing in the Europa League group stages. A short-term deal with Bristol Rovers was extended in 2012, and he later had a loan spell with Northern League Division side Celtic Nation before returning to Scotland to play for Forfar Athletic, Dunfermline Athletic and Stenhousemuir before retiring in 2017.
