WHAT A DEBUT!
James rode his first meeting for Poole on Monday (27th March 2017) against Wolverhampton. He scored 3+1 as they went down 50-40 in the first leg of the Elite Shield at Monmore Green. His first home match quickly followed on the Wednesday (29th March), the second leg of the Elite Shield - and what a home debut James made. James scored 9+3 (a paid max.) from 4 rides. He was part of three 5-1's with team mate Nicolai Klindt and even secured his first race win in his last ride. Poole won 58-32 on the night and retained the shield 98-82 on aggregate.
