On 10 May 2014, it was reported that Young would return to his hometown to join A-League defending champion Brisbane Roar for the 2014–15 season. Young struggled to adjust to the A-League with fans and even teammate Shane Stefanutto laying the blame on Young for the Roar’s less than impressive start to the season. Young kept his first cleansheet in a 4–0 thrashing of the Newcastle Jets, courtesy of an Henrique hattrick. Due to Michael Theo’s wrist injury, sustained in pre-season training, Young played as the no. 1 keeper for the majority of the season, even in the Elimination Final clash against Adelaide United in which Brisbane were downed 2–1 despite Jamie’s scintillating form. Young played 24 matches for the Roar in the 2014/15 season, keeping five cleansheets, as well as one cleansheet in the ACL in Roar’s 1–0 win against Urawa Reds.
On the 30th of April, Young won the golden glove award for best goalkeeper in the A-League at the Dolan Warren Awards.
The modern process of water removal by spinning did not come into use until electric motors were developed. Spinning requires a constant high-speed power source, and was originally done in a separate device known as an “extractor”. A load of washed laundry would be transferred from the wash tub to the extractor basket, and the water spun out in a separate operation. These early extractors were often dangerous to use, since unevenly distributed loads would cause the machine to shake violently. Many efforts were made to counteract the shaking of unstable loads, such as mounting the spinning basket on a free-floating shock-absorbing frame to absorb minor imbalances, and a bump switch to detect severe movement and stop the machine so that the load could be manually redistributed.
