Jamie Hoyland – football and sports career management expert

Jamie Hoyland

Jamie is an ex pro footballer having played for over 17 years and then spent 16 years coaching at youth level for numerous clubs. During my playing career I made almost 500 professional appearances for Manchester City, Sheffield United, Burnley, Bury and Scarborough, before accepting a coaching position at Bolton Wanderers, where I worked alongside Frank Stapleton in the club’s Youth Academy. After spells at Burnley and Rochdale, where I combined the roles of Youth Team manager and First Team assistant manager, I then joined Preston North End in 2005 as Youth Team Coach. Over seven years, I was responsible for overseeing the development of arguably the finest crop of young players in a generation at PNE. I am proud of the fact that more than a dozen players progressed from the youth set-up to the first team during my tenure at the club, many of whom would now command significant transfer fees if sold on the open market.
