James is in the Sale Sharks Academy set-up and is one of three youngsters selected in the Under 17s group.
Great to see George Scott in the Academy too and both the Southport lads on the official squad photo. The future augers well for them both and for others in the pipeline too.
DoR Mike Dale comments "Great to see 9 players who have come through our Junior section named in the Lancashire u17 squad . Well done to all who went for trials. Testament to a great bunch of lads coming through and what a club we are!! Well done to all those who went for trials, don’t be downhearted, your time will come ! Great achievement to get well in to double figures in the training squad."
The outlook for rugby at Southport is very sunny indeed!
