Jamie Green is a Blue - a Holy Blue!

Jamie Green is a Blue - a Holy Blue!

Jamie Green makes it two new signings in two days for Gainsborough Trinity as Liam King & Ross Hannah step up their recruitment drive ahead of the 2019/20 season. A hugely experienced left sided player, Green makes the move to Lincolnshire from Sheffield based side Handsworth Parramore. Having previously played at Buxton, where he amassed over 200 appearances in a five year spell, the enthusiastic 29 year old is looking forward to getting started at the Martin & Co Arena.

I caught up with the former Rotherham United youngster earlier today to share an insight into his move, with Green revealing, "I have played at this level before and know it isn’t the easiest league to play in, but I am really looking forward to the challenge. With the greatest respect to Handsworth and the level with which they are playing at, the Evo-Stik is a lot more competitive. It’s a good standard and there’s more hunger."

Jamie prides himself on high standards, and that was evident during our conversation. "I am a very proud person, and it hurts to lose. I am a firm believer that matches are won on the training ground. If you work hard in training, then you have a very good chance of achieving your goals i.e getting promoted come the end of the season".

A trained physiotherapist, Green has now turned his back on that profession, instead opting for a career path similar to that of Holy Blues’ boss, Liam King, running a Kixx franchise in Sheffield. "It’s a growing business. It’s outside and doing something I enjoy". Jamie also enjoys the flexibility this gives him, as it was a major factor in him leaving Buxton and joining Handsworth Parramore last season. "I was working long days in the NHS, then having to commit to on call shifts that were interfering with my football, it just made things difficult. I don’t know what I would do if I had to turn my back on KIXX and go back to the NHS!"

The trusty left footer is looking forward to renewing some acquaintances, "There are a few familiar faces at the club, that I can’t wait to catch up with again. Ash (Worsfold) and Joe (Maguire) both spent time at Buxton when I was there, then there is the gaffer, Liam King. We have been friends since the age of 15 and Ross (Hannah) arrived at Bradford City while I was on trial there - so I know a few of the lads and it will be good to see them again and get started."

Former clubs include Rotherham United, Grimsby Town, Buxton FC, Boston United and Handsworth Parramore. Famously, amongst Millers fans, Jamie scored the last goal at Rotherham’s former Millmoor home.

Assistant boss, Ross Hannah was keen to welcome the new man, saying, "Jamie is a good signing for us as we look to build a competitive squad for next season. He’s the right type of character we want in and around the place. He’s a fit lad with good experience and knowledge of the game & can also play a couple of positions down the left side. We’re looking forward to seeing him fitting in with the rest of the lads."

Welcome to the club Jamie!
