BiogLeft-back James McQuilken made his way through the youth ranks at Celtic before making his Bhoys debut in a 1-0 league win over Falkirk at Parkhead April 1993.
The former St John Bosco Academy pupil was a product of Celtic Boys Club and had initially signed on at Parkhead as a YTS player. The youngster impressed in the reserve sides of the early 90s and he was a full back who liked to get forward and test defences.
However his first team opportunities were initially limited by the presence of Polish international Dariusz Wdowczyk and he never progressed as had been hoped. It was a poor time to be at the club for anyone, let alone an aspiring footballer. We were desperate for any silverware and so development was not good, and the club was going through the takeover ramblings. Not easy for Jamie or others, and likely he suffered partially from it.
By the time he left Parkhead in 1995 for Dundee United Jamie had made only four starts for the Hoops.
When offered a senior contract and first team role by Dundee Utd. he joined them on 4/11/95 for £150k, against Tommy Burns wishes but with his understanding. He looked good at Dundee Utd but by November ’96 he was told he was not part of their future plans and left for a brief spell at Hibernian before joining Falkirk in July 1998. Falkirk valued his ability using him both as a defender and left-side midfield player and he stayed with them till June 2003. Out of contract he was picked up and rapidly remaindered by Steve Paterson at Aberdeen before joining the Old Bhoys home-from-home with Billy Stark at St Johnstone.
A loan to Gretna at the start of 04/05 became a full move on 31/5/05.
He was released by Gretna prior to their meltdown in January 2007 and joined Queen of the South on a free transfer. He played a full 90 minutes in the 2008 Cup Final 2-3 loss to Rangers.
He signed a new contract with Queen of the South at the start of the 2008-09 season and continues to play for them.
