Biography


Capped at youth, Under-20 and Under-23 levels, Jason had played for London Lasers and Kitcheners Kickers in the Canadian Soccer League before moving to Motreal Impact in the American Soccer League in 1993. In November 1996 he moved to England to play for Darlington, where he spent two years before becoming manager Paul Sturrock's second signing in October 1998 for £400,000.

He made his debut as a substitute in a League defeat to Kilmarnock at Tannadice, and thereafter was rarely out of the side. Known for his ability in the air, he surprisingly only scores twice for United, in away matches against Motherwell and Rangers. Appointed Club captain, he continued to be an important part of the team throughout his three years at Tannadice - although his trips abroad on international duty sometimes left United without one of their best players. Having made his Canada debut in 1997 whilst with Darlington, he made 28 of his 49 international appearances whilst with United, captaining the Canadian team from 1999, and won the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2000, scoring in the final against Colombia in Los Angeles. Having helped United survive a relegation scare during the 2000-01 season, Jason made it clear that he wanted a move down to England, and the memorable 3-2 win over St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park proved to be his last for the Club.

In July 2001, Jason was sold to Wigan Athletic for £500,000, where he again became captain and led them to promotion to the First Division in 2002-03. He continued to appear regularly for Canadian team, twice being named in the CONCACAF Gold Cup All-Star Team and was voted Canadian Player of the Year in 2002. He moved on to Ipswich Town in 2004, becoming captain once more. He retired in May 2008, becoming a football pundit back home in Canada, and was later appointed the director of development for the Canadian Soccer Association.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Jason was born on this date in London, Ontario, Canada.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Capped at youth, Under-20 and Under-23 levels, Jason had played for London Lasers and Kitcheners Kickers in the Canadian Soccer League before moving to Motreal Impact in the American Soccer League in 1993. In November 1996 he moved to England to play for Darlington, where he spent two years before becoming manager Paul Sturrock's second signing in October 1998 for £400,000.

  • The less said about this game the better. Killie were always in control and deservedly won. An apparent lifeline was thrown to us with the 58th minute award of a penalty when Vareille was adjudged to have impeded Jim Paterson. For once the normally reliable Billy Dodds failed to beat Marshall from the spot and with that went any chances of taking something from the game in which Alex Mathie started and Jason de Vos came on as a substitute for both to make their debuts. Vareille's late goal was no less than the visitors deserved.

  • Alex Smith named an unchanged team from the side that defeated Dunfermline Athletic last weekend. A win for United in this fixture could all but mathematically secure safety for the Terrors, leaving St Mirren bottom of the league with a vastly inferior goal difference to that of United. Smith's men duly delivered in front of an overwhelming traveling United support, but made in keeping with the rest of the season, they made hard work of it for themselves!
