If any a players deserved to be in a promotion team it was James, from his bad jokes to fantastic tackles on the pitch he is surely the first name on Ian Bogies team sheet as he is a all round team player.
Season Rating 8 out of 10.
He missed a section of the season through injury, and was a massive miss in Gateshead defence. His partnerships he formed with both Steve Salvin and Carl Jones at the back were so impressive, he knew where every player was on the pitch at all times. James has had many offers to move away from the Heed to play at a much higher level, but he has gave his all for the club and fans. For this the Heed Army are truly grateful, and look forward to see James lead from the back as ever next season.
