Lloyd Stuart Roger James (born 16 February 1988) is a Welsh former under-21 international footballer currently playing for Leyton Orient.

Club career[edit]

Southampton[edit]

He attended Ashton Park School in the Ashton Gate area of Bristol. He was a member of Southampton's youth team that reached the final of the FA Youth Cup in 2005, losing on aggregate to Ipswich Town.

He made his debut for the Wales under-21 team against Cyprus U21s on 15 November 2005.

He was called into the first team squad for the FA Cup tie at Torquay United on 6 January 2007. On 9 August 2008, James started in Southampton's match against Cardiff City.

He scored his first goal in a 3–1 victory over Exeter City on Boxing Day, 2009.[2] He scored his second goal with a 20-yard volley in a 1–1 draw with Brentford. On 15 May 2010, James was named in a list of 13 players to be released from Southampton before the start of the 2010–11 season.[3][4]

Colchester United[edit]

Colchester United manager John Ward then offered him a trial for at least two weeks. James played in three games impressing enough to be offered a contract.[5] The two-year deal was finalised on 22 July.[6] On 26 June 2012, James rejected the offer of a new contract with Colchester United and he left the club on 1 July upon the expiry of his current contract.[7]

Crawley Town[edit]

On 2 March 2012, he joined League Two promotion hopefuls Crawley Town on loan. In April 2012, due to illness and not being able to hold down a regular first team place at Crawley Town, James returned to Colchester United for the remaining few games of 2011–12.

Leyton Orient[edit]

After a short trial, on 18 July James signed for League 1 club Leyton Orient on a two-year contract.
