Midfielder James joined WIFC after responding to an ad on Twitter. Having been sidelined with a long term injury before his arrival, joining WIFC represents a comeback for James, and his all-action displays in central midfield have made a real impact. Having scored on his debut for the club, James went onto earn two man of the match awards in his first season, though an injury sustained paying some silly summer sport meant he missed out on London Cup glory to cap it off.
