The 21-year-old right-back, who was most recently playing for Icelandic side Valur, has agreed a one-year contract at the Broadfield Stadium.

Town manager Richie Barker told the club's official website: "Right-back was a key position for us when it came to adding to the squad and we're delighted to have James on board.

"He's a terrific defender but he loves to get forward and fits the template of player I want in our squad - someone who is young, athletic with a willingness to learn and improve and a terrific attitude."
