Ex-Claret and former Blade to make draw

Last updated : 05 December 2003 By Tony Scholes

Jamie Hoyland joined Burnley from Sheffield United on loan initially in 1994 and made his
debut in a 0-0 draw at Sunderland playing centre-half for the suspended Steve Davis.

After a month’s loan he signed on a permanent basis and in his next game, by now playing in midfield, he scored in a 4-2 live television game against Sheffield United.

He was a regular in Jimmy Mullen’s side but found winning a place in the first team more difficult under both Heath and Waddle and having initially not been offered a new deal he left the club in the summer of 1998 and signed for Scarborough where he ended his playing career.

He’s been involved in coaching since and was number two to Paul Simpson at Rochdale during last season but lost his job with Simpson at the end of a disappointing season.

Jamie, who also played for Manchester City, Bury and Bristol City will be sure to get a good reception from both sets of supporters.
