Wiry Dublin-born winger Devitt came through the youth team ranks at Hull City at a time when the club was transforming from lower league contenders to Premier League stars. It was only when City were relegated back to the Championship that Devitt made his City debut, having cut his teeth during various loan spells. By 2013 City were heading once more the top flight and Devitt’s time at City ended.
After leaving City Jamie carved a decent career in the lower leagues, an abortive spell at Chesterfield was followed by extended spells at Morecambe and, latterly, Carlisle United. In June 2019 he moved to Blackpool, joining the Tangerines’ rebirth following the scourge of the Oyston family, but within two months he was farmed out to Bradford City and spent the early months of 2020/21 at Newport County. In January 2021 Devitt’s loan was terminated after 11 appearances for the Welsh side, he was released by Blackpool by mutual agreement and joined League 2 newboys Barrow.
Devitt won a solitary Ireland under-21 cap in 2011.
