Pools Seal Loan Move For James

1 February 2016

Luke James has completed his return to Victoria Park after Pools sealed a Deadline Day loan move for the Peterborough United front man.

The 21-year-old has spent the first half of 2015/16 on loan at Bradford City but has now penned a deal that will see him stay on loan at The Vic until the end of the campaign.

James came through the ranks at Pools, having joined the Club’s Academy at the age of 11 and his performances in the Youth Team and Reserves won him a professional contract when he turned 17.

He went on to make his senior debut against Colchester United in December 2011 and just a few weeks later became the Club’s youngest-ever scorer when he lashed in an incredible goal against Rochdale.

The pacey forward scored 22 goals in 100 appearances during his first spell with the Club, earning the Fans' and Players' Player of the Year awards in 2013/14 after hitting the net sixteen times.

James – who moved to Peterborough in September 2014 – will wear his old number 33 shirt during the loan spell and goes straight in to contention for Saturday’s game against Notts County.
