A capture from Stevenage in May 2014, Jimmy came through the Chelsea youth academy, making a solitary appearance against Newcastle United. Jimmy then had loan spells with QPR, Norwich City, Sheffield Wednesday and Leyton Orient.

He impressed enough at Brisbane Road to sign on a permanent basis and he appeared almost 150 times for the O's between 2009-13. After his release from Orient, he moved to Stevenage and was a regular there prior to signing a two-year deal with the Reds.

In October 2018, he signed a new contract keeping him at the club until the end of the 2019-20 season, with the option for a further year. He missed most of last season following knee surgery but made his 169th appearance for the club as a sub in the final game at home to Tranmere.

In September 2019, Jimmy joined Yeovil Town on loan until January 2020.
