Jimmy returned to Meadow Park for his fourth spell at the end of November 2006 following a season with Yate Town.

Having originally joined his hometown club following a spell with Luton Town in his teens at the start of the 1999/2000 campaign Jimmy soon made a name for himself with his electric pace and eye for goal. Budget cuts and the loss of manager Brian Hughes saw him leave Meadow Park after netting eight goals in twenty-eight games.

He ended the season with Bath City where he was played as a winger (!) by Paul Bodin before rejoining the newly relegated Tigers for the start of the 2000/01 campaign under Tommy Callinan.

Defences in the lesser league couldn't cope with a player of his talent and he finished with twenty-two goals from forty-eight starts despite early season competition from Karl Bayliss and Matt Rawlins before the latter decamped to Chippenham Town just before Christmas.

However following Callinans end of season departure and the appointment of Chris Burns Jimmy hit the road again and joined Weston Super Mare where he became a hit during his season at the seaside. But with the need for a striker Coxy was again tempted back (albeit with 5000 going to Weston) and he became a Tiger for a third time in September 2002.

His debut against Redditch saw Jimmy sent straight off for calling the referee a cheat after he'd denied the Tigers a penalty but that low point was to be usurped by the part that he played in our FA Trophy run against Woking and Southport as he went on to score twenty-five goals in forty-two starts and record his best ever haul in a City shirt.

2003/04 represented a return of a goal every other game for Jimmy as he scored twenty-four times to help City into second place behind Redditch United to claim a place in the reformed Southern Premier.

Sadly the step up in standard didn't seem to suit Jimmy and was a shadow of himself as he only started just over half of City's games and finished the season with just eleven goals. A poor return for a player of his quality. At the end of the campaign he announced that he was leaving the Tigers to spend some time in Australia and upon his return he opted for Yate Town after playing a few games for Bishops Cleeve to regain some form of match fitness.
