James Michael "Jay" McEveley (born 11 February 1985) is a footballer who plays as a defender for Ross County.

Born in Liverpool, he represented Everton at junior level before signing for Blackburn Rovers where he made his professional debut. He spent five seasons with the Lancashire club, playing for them in the Premier League, but was unable to hold down a regular first-team place and was eventually sold to Derby County in January 2007. Although he finally cemented himself as a regular starter with his new club, McEveley struggled with injuries and was eventually released in the summer of 2010. He subsequently spent two seasons each with Barnsley and Swindon Town before joining Sheffield United in 2014. During his career, McEveley also spent short spells on loan with a number of clubs; Burnley, Gillingham, Ipswich Town, Preston North End, Charlton Athletic and a brief spell at Swindon Town before his permanent switch.

Having initially represented England at both under-20 and under-21 level, McEveley also qualified to represent Scotland through his family and duly represented them, playing for both the Scotland B and Scotland national sides, making three appearances for the latter between 2007 and 2008.
