Where is Jamie Lawrence now?
Lighting up the Premier League in the 1990’s with his dazzling displays and colourful hairstyles, Jamie Lawrence retired from playing in 2013 after a spell with non league side Lingfield.
Playing professionally for 12 years between 1993 and 2005, he featured in the top tier with both Bradford City and Leicester City – winning the League Cup in 1997 with the latter.
Away from the domestic game he also represented the Jamaica national side on 24 occasions, scoring one goal.

Upon retiring from playing Lawrence set up his own football academy in Tooting and has established himself as a highly respected personal fitness trainer.
He also released a successful book From Prison to the Premiership which you can purchase from Amazon.
In 2014 Lawrence joined Sutton United as a coach but left in the October after the side failed to progress in the FA Cup which meant that the club had to make budget cuts.
The unexpected departure from Sutton United proved to be a blessing in disguise for Lawrence as a couple of months later he started a new job as fitness coach for the Ghanaian national team for the 2015 African Cup of Nations.
Working with former Chelsea head coach Avram Grant, Lawrence’s Ghana side had a fantastic tournament reaching the final but they unfortunately lost to the Ivory Coast.
He rejoined the Ghana technical team for their 2017 AFCON qualifying games.
Lawrence has also had coaching roles at non-league sides Kingstonian and Whitehawk and is hoping to join the Ghana national side’s backroom staff for a third time as they prepare for the 2020 African Cup of Nations.
