James is a man of few words. He has made his way quietly through the ranks in the Harps over the last few years and is a very reliable defender indeed. He has great speed, and rarely gets caught out of position. He fought the first bout in the ‘Brawl in the Hall’ last November and took a unanimous decision as well.
