Career

Stevenson began his career with Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen. He was released by the club because they believed he was too small to make the grade in professional football. From there he dropped down the leagues and joined Alloa Athletic. It was after just two first team appearances with the club that Stevenson's life was turned up side down. In what has been described as a 'Roy of the Rovers' moment Stevenson was spotted playing a game of football with his uncle on the Spanish island of Majorca.[1] A scout from Spanish La Liga side Real Mallorca approached Stevenson and offered him a trial.[1] Stevenson made such an impression in this trial that he was offered a 3 year contract with the Spanish giants.

Stevenson only lasted 18 months at the Son Moix stadium because he was terribly homesick. In his time in Spain he did not make a first team appearance but was a regular in the B side, for whom he scored a goal on his debut. Real Mallorca were keen to hold on to Stevenson and part of his release stated that he could only return to his former club Alloa, which he did in 2004.

In season 2005–06 he was a star man for Alloa Athletic almost single handedly keeping them in the Scottish Second Division via the end of season 2nd Division / 3rd Division playoffs. His form alerted several larger clubs but to many people's surprise he chose to sign a pre-contract agreement with Greenock Morton, a club who were in the same division as Alloa. Morton agreed to pay Alloa a nominal sum believed to be in the region of £16,000.[2]

In July 2008, Jamie moved to Alloa Athletic for a third spell after joining the second division club on loan from Morton.[3]

On Hogmanay 2008 his loan spell expired, so he returned to Morton with only 6 months to earn himself a new contract at the club.

In the January 2009 transfer window, Stevenson rejoined Jim McInally at his new club East Stirlingshire on loan until the end of the season.[4]

Stevenson will be released after the end of the 2008–2009 season, this was confirmed by Davie Irons on the 8 May in the Greenock Telegraph.[5]

On 9 July 2009 Stevenson signed permanently for East Stirlingshire.[6]
