"But being at this (Dunblane Sports Club) club, having a lot of other kids around you doing the same thing, being part of this fun environment; this is where it all stemmed from. I have a host of great memories and it’s great to keep coming back and see it busy; there are always kids out playing.”

Jamie’s involvement with the Murray Trophy - Glasgow has seen him step into the spotlight as a tournament consultant for the event, working closely with the LTA over the course of several months in developing the Scotland ATP Challenger tournament for 2019.

The Murray Trophy – Glasgow, an ATP Challenger tournament, takes place at the Scotstoun Leisure Centre and runs until Sunday 22 September.
