Signed from Carnoustie Panmure, Jake was to have a long career nearing 400 appearances, but not in Dark Blue.

These were limited to just two and both defeats against Partick Thistle at Firhill! His Dundee debut was at left-back in a 2-1 defeat in April 1955, and the second over two years later was even less memorable as The Jags ran out 5-0 winners.

Freed shortly afterwards, he joined Arbroath where he established himself at centre-half the year before they gained promotion to the First Division, missing only one of the games as they went up and only five the following season as they returned instantly from the top flight.

In 1960, he joined East Fife and served the Methil club for five full seasons, he only missed five league games.

Jake was then transferred to St Mirren, he spent another season in the top flight, but only played four league games on top of six League Cup ties for the Paisley club before being freed in 1966.

He then went to Keith in the Highland League but before the end of that season, he joined Forfar where he spent the remainder of his senior career, before retiring in 1970. Outside of football he worked as a rep in the licensed trade.
