Lloyd Stuart Roger James (born 16 February 1988) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Exeter City in League Two.

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.[3] 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.[4][5]

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.[6] The two-year deal was finalised on 22 July.[7] He scored his first goals for Colchester when he scored twice in an FA Cup tie against Crewe Alexandra on 12 November 2011.[8] His first league goal came in a 4-1 win over Bury on 10 December 2011.[9] 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.[10]

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, James signed for League One club Leyton Orient on a two-year contract. He went on to make 138 appearances and score 11 goals for the O's over four seasons at Brisbane Road.

James was released by Leyton Orient at the end of the 2015-16 season.[11]

Exeter City[edit]

On 25 May 2016 James signed with League Two club Exeter City.[12]
