His performances earned him the club?s Young Player of the Year award and his sublime finish against Lancashire rivals Blackburn in February was the Latics? Goal of the Season. James started out at Hamilton Academical making his senior debut as a 15-year-old. He completed over 100 senior appearances before joining Wigan and is a former PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year.
