Career[edit]

Doncaster Rovers[edit]

Husband was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire. He attended Wigton Moor Primary School and Boston Spa School. After coming through the Leeds United academy, he moved to Doncaster Rovers and signed a two-year scholarship in the summer of 2010.[citation needed] He signed his first professional contract in November 2011, on a ​2 12-year deal after reported interest from Premier League clubs.[3] He made his first team debut on 17 April 2012 in a 0–0 draw with Middlesbrough, coming on as a second-half substitute for Shelton Martis.[4] He made his first start four days later, as Doncaster beat Coventry City 2–0.[5] Husband was named man of the match in Rovers' League Cup round two win over Hull City.[citation needed]

Husband's first goals for Rovers came when he was temporarily moved to play in left midfield. The first was at Crawley Town on 18 February,[6] followed by a second, eight days later, at Shrewsbury Town.[7] At the end of the season, Rovers were promoted to the Championship.

Husband scored his first goal of the 2013-14 season on 16 August, when his overhit cross went over the head of Blackburn Rovers's goalkeeper to complete a 2-0 victory.[8] Doncaster were relegated back to League One at the end of the season.

Middlesbrough[edit]

On 26 July 2014 it was announced that James Husband would join Championship side Middlesbrough in a swap deal for Curtis Main and a fee believed to be in the region of £500,000. Husband scored his first goal for the U21s in a 2–1 victory over Newcastle United's U21s in December 2014.[citation needed]

Fulham (loan)[edit]

On 25 March 2015, Husband joined Fulham on loan until the end of the season as part of a deal that saw Fernando Amorebieta move the other way, also on loan.[9] He re-joined Fulham, again on loan, for a month the following season in a similar deal to the previous one, with Amorebieta joining Middlesbrough on loan for the duration of the 2015-16 season.[10]

Huddersfield Town (loan)[edit]

Husband joined Huddersfield Town on an emergency loan on 8 January 2016. He made his début as a substitute in the 2–2 draw against Reading in the FA Cup 3rd round match at the John Smith's Stadium the following day. He made his league début the following week in the 1–1 draw against Fulham. He would play 12 games for the Terriers before his spell ended on 9 April 2016.

Norwich City[edit]

On 11 July 2017, Husband joined Norwich City on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.[11]

On 20 August 2018, Husband joined League One side Fleetwood Town on loan until January.[12]
