Club Debut - 1997
1XI Debut - 1999
1XI No - 317

James made his debut from the juniors in 1997, playing regularly in the 2XI until 2002 when work commitments restricted his availability. Lack of practice left him struggling for form until 2004 at East Halsey where, despite reverse sweeping the ball onto his own stumps but the bails didn't come off, he scored a run a ball century in a partnership of 152 with Richard Jackson. Only the second time a father & son have scored centuries for the club, (Father, Phil, scored 6 centuries) after Ron and Mike Shuttleworth. During the 2006 season James became the fifth player to score 1,000 runs for the friendly side.

Appointed unofficial vice-captain of the Midweek 3XI by Captain Simon Raw and captained for the first time against Ashington in June 2010. At the AGM ahead of the 2011 season the position of vice captain was made an official one and James was appointed.

Captained the 3XI through their Ian Appleby Cup run (bar the 1st round) as the team won the trophy for the first time. With Simon Raw injured James then captained the 2012 season.
