Wide man Jamie Devitt joined United on a two-year deal in June 2016.

An appearance based trigger clause extended his stay at Brunton Park until the end of the current season. A fine run of form in the last campaign saw him sweep the player of the season awards board.

Dublin-born Devitt started his career at newly promoted Premier League side Hull City and was voted their Young Player of the Year for the 2007/08 season. 

In 2011 Devitt was capped by the Republic of Ireland U21 side. He went on to have seven spells on loan before signing for Chesterfield in the summer of 2013.

His time with the Spireites resulted in eight appearances before he joined Morecambe, initially on loan. Jim Bentley made the move permanent in the summer of 2014 and Devitt went on to make 98 appearances for the Shrimps, scoring 12 goals.
