James Horsfield hails from Hazel Grove and has been with City for nine years, signing on as a first year scholar in July 2012.
Described as a born leader, James captained the u16 side and wore the armband for the u18s with increasing regularity during the 2012/13 campaign.
A midfield lynchpin with a great eye for a pass, James is a versatile member of the squad who can fill in at right back or take a well-struck penalty when the occasion requires.
