Opting for a move to Gainsborough, where he looks to catch the eye of Trinity boss Curtis Woodhouse, James brings more drive and energy to the Holy Blues' engine room as Curtis continues his squad progression for both this and next season. "James is a very talented player I’ve had my eye on for a bit. He has bundles of ability and if he develops how I think he will, he can be a massive player for us moving forward", revealed the boss, Curtis Woodhouse.

James expressed his desire to get going, enthusing: "It’s a fantastic opportunity for myself to play for Gainsborough Trinity and after speaking to the manager about his views on football and how he wants to take the club forward, it excited me. I'm looking forward to meeting the squad and playing in front of the fans. I'm excited to be part of a club moving upwards."

James goes into the squad which travels to play-off hopeful Lancaster City on Saturday, with news breaking today that Shane Clarke has joined up with Grantham on an initial month’s loan. Welcome to the club JT!
