Livingston goalkeeper Darren Jamieson eyeing 100 appearances milestone



Livingston goalkeeper Darren Jamieson admits he is hoping to make it 100 not out in today’s Scottish Cup visit of Morton.

The shot-stopper is just one appearance short of reaching the three-figure milestone and is desperate to show manager David Hopkin that he deserves to line-up against Ton in the fourth round.

Jamieson has started the Lions last two matches – 2-0 defeats to Falkirk and Queen of the South – after being dropped to the bench during Dundee United keeper Marc McCallum’s three-month loan spell.

Hopkin is keen to re-sign McCallum but Jamieson hopes to achieve his century this afternoon.

He said: “That’s 99 games I’ve played now so hopefully it will be my 100th on Saturday.

“It would be brilliant to get into the three-figure mark and keep myself going from there.

“It’s been really good for me starting so young, I’ve been playing something like two-and-a-half seasons now in the first team and I’ve always wanted to get to 100 games.

“It would be good for me to get it and hopefully it will be another 100 for me as well.

“I’m delighted to be back playing.

“You’re happy at first to be a football player but once you start playing you want to play every week and get yourself in the team.

“It’s frustrating when you’re out but you can’t do anything about it except work hard and try to get the manager’s attention so he knows you’re still there and want to be playing.

“It did run through my mind that I would have to move on. I said to myself, my agent and my family that I need to be playing, I really want to be playing.

“Hopefully the manager sees that I’m good enough to be playing for a long time.”
