EVE OF SEASON SWOOP FOR SADDLERS

18 August 2012

Chambers checks in...

THE SADDLERS have completed an eve of season swoop to secure the services of James Chambers.

Chambers joined the youth ranks at West Bromwich Albion along with twin brother, Adam in 1996 and the pair progressed to both earn professional deals at the turn of 1999.

Going on to make 78 appearances for The Baggies, during which time he and Adam became not only the first twins to represent Albion at senior level, but also play in the Premier League.

Joining Watford, initially on loan, in August 2004, he completed a permanent switch to Vicarage Road and helped the club achieve top-flight status before his next move took him to Leicester City, via a loan spell at Cardiff City.

Within a year he was on the move again in the wake of The Foxes’ relegation with Doncaster Rovers being his next port of call.

Establishing a regular place in the Rovers’ side, his versatility in being able to play in either full-back role made him a key figure.

Making a total of 87 appearances for Rovers, he also had a seven-game loan spell at Hereford United towards the end of last term.

Linking up with The Saddlers earlier this summer, he has fitted into the squad well and stands by to make his debut against former club, Doncaster this afternoon.
