He joined the Brewers on a two-year deal in the summer of 2010 after negotiating his release from Anfield by mutual consent due to fierce competition for places.
James had loan spells at both Stafford Rangers and Hednesford Town during the 2010/11 season.

Albion manager Paul Peschisolido describes him as 'a good finisher with an excellent eye for goal'.
