Midfielder - Senior Men
Since being called up to the senior programme in January 2017, James has become a key component of the midfield for both England and Great Britain.
In his first tournament he helped the latter win their first Sultan Azlan Shah gold medal before also winning bronze with England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and playing at the 2018 World Cup.
A regular in the Surbiton team too, he helped the club to their first ever Men’s Hockey League title alongside brother Jonny back in 2018.
It could have been so much different for James though, having fractured his skull and spine in a freak accident back in 2015. However, he has fought back superbly to become one of the most reliable and gritty players in the team with a long international future ahead of him.
