233 James Proctor
Position : Winger
Played : 1995-96
Appearances : 3
Goals : 0
Lance Key was Mick Docherty's last signing. The next four players were kids thrown into the side at the end of the season as the squad got depleted rather in the manner of Hitler throwing his Youth against the advancing Russians.
The first to make his debut (by four minutes) was James who came on for Jamie Taylor away at Colchester in April 1996. He had been discarded from Bradford's YTS scheme and showed up quite well in the reserves but he didn't make much impression against Division Three full backs.
He went to Chorley on his release in the summer but by 1998 he had emigrated to the USA and seems to have become an American citizen. He played for a number of teams over there before retiring in 2005. He is now Head Soccer Coach for Boys at Worcester Academy in Massachusetts.
