Profile:
Emerged from the successful Dons Youth side of the late 80's and shot to fame when he played in the 1989 League Cup Final, helping the Dons to beat Rangers as a raw 19-year-old. Still a hot favourite at Pittodrie, Jess tried his luck in the English Premiership with Coventry, before returning to Aberden in a 650,000 move in 1997. Was often been the shining light in a struggling Dons team. Capped for Scotland 18 times, was part of the Euro 96 squad. Jess fought his way back after a bad leg fracture in 1992 curtailed his international promise. Joined Bradford City in January 2001, before making the move permanent at the end of that season. In 2002 he moved to Nottingham Forest where he played till 2005 when he joined Northampton Town as player-coach till he was released in April 2007. Rejoined Nottingham Forest in 2007 to continue working as a youth coach.
