Jamie Waite (born 20 February 1986 in Plymouth) is a Thai professional football goalkeeper. He has represented Thailand at full international level, being the second youngest international aged just 15 years 354 days. He is unattached following a short spell at Doncaster Rovers, where he failed to win a contract he has now signed for harlow town in the ryman league north


Waite, the son of a British father and Thai mother, began his career as a junior in Thailand and made his debut for the national side aged just 15 years and 354 days when he came on as a second-half substitute in a game against Singapore in Bangkok. At the time it made him the second youngest player ever to appear in a full international.[1]

His form for the Thai national team attracted the attention of Rotherham United with who Waite started a three year scholarship in 2003. He left Rotherham after just one year and subsequently played for a number of clubs, including Braintree Town, Leyton and Woking, before joining Kettering Town,[2] and then moving on to Barrow in January 2005.[2]

He left Barrow to join Stevenage Borough in March 2005.[3] He joined Cambridge United in August 2005,[4] joining Chelmsford City on loan in September 2005[5] and moving to AFC Sudbury in January 2006.[6]

Waite joined Milton Keynes Dons in July 2006. He was unable to break into the Dons first team and was released in January 2007. During his time at Milton Keynes found a cancer of the lymph glands and underwent a 10-month chemotherapy programme before being given the all-clear.[1]

In August 2007, Waite signed on non-contract terms for Conference South side St Albans City,[7] before moving to Bradford City on 21 November 2007 and playing in a reserve game on the same day against Hartlepool United.[8] In March 2008 he joined Conference National side Droylsden on a loan deal. On 29 April 2008, Waite was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Valley Parade and was released by manager Stuart McCall along with 13 other Bradford players.[9] He never featured for Bradford.

On 2 September 2008, he signed for Doncaster Rovers on a non-contract basis following a trial at the club.[10] He was recommended to Doncaster by ex-player Barry Richardson after Waite was trained by him at Nottingham Forest.[11] After less than a month with Rovers, he was released after failing to win a permanent contract.[12]
