Jamie was a combative midfielder who was a regular feature in the middle of the park for the Millers after first making his debut and 4 appearances in season 2008/09. He has played well over one hundred games for the Millers overing ten seasons, his last being 2017/18.

Appearance records are incomplete for the few seasons, however 126 games are fully accounted for with data for three full seasons missing. From the available data we know that appearances numbered at least 22 in season 2012/13 up to 9th Feb, 27 in 2014/15, 20 in 2015/16 and 43 in 2016/17 under manager James Collins, including a rare goal against Deal Town in the challenge cup. His final season with the Millers in 2017/18 produced 10 appearances. Jamie subsequently joined Corinthian for the start of season 2018/19.

Jamie was a member of the team under Steve Chapman that finished 3rd in the Kent County League Premier Division in season 2011/12 and effectively gained a double promotion moving from playing at step 7 in the Kent County League to step 5 in the Kent Hurlimann League. Jamie successfully made that transition. Steve Chapman remarked in an interview in September 2011 "I’m particularly pleased with the likes of Joe Matthews, Ben Healy and Jamie Miller, all of whom in my opinion have comfortably made the step up."

Also played in the side that won the London Intermediate Cup Final in consecutive years in 2010 beating Erith Town 2-1 aet at Met Police FC and 2011 when Newham were beaten 3-1 at Croydon Athletic FC.

Was captain of the team under Steve Chapman for a period including season 2012/13 when the club entered the FA Vase competition for the first time. A member of the side under James Collins that won the London Senior Cup in 2016. Jamie played in the final at Dulwich Hamlet v Metropolitan Police. At the time the Millers were the lowest ranked side (step 5) to win the competition. The cup final programme penpix described Jamie as "part of the 'engine room' of the team. His non-stop running and tackling have been an important part of our success this season and he's even scored a goal!"

In the early Kent County league days, Jamie gained recognition by earning selection for the Kent County League Representative side. Afforded the Millers great service throughout his time and fully deserves legendary status and member of the 100 club.
