In the relentless pursuit of excellence, Stylo Matchmakers welcomed another football virtuoso into its fold – the Welsh wing maestro, Leighton James. After gracing the boots of legends like Pele and George Best, James showcased his exceptional form with Burnley FC from 1970 onwards. Starting his career as a left-winger, James made a league debut that hinted at the brilliance to come. His international journey with Wales saw him earn 54 caps and net 10 goals, solidifying his status as a football force to be reckoned with.

In 1975, Derby County secured his talents for a then club-record fee of £317,000, marking a pivotal moment in his dynamic career. A brief stint with Queens Park Rangers followed in 1977, displaying his prowess with 28 league games and 4 goals to his name. The 1978 return to Burnley saw James playing a crucial role, leaving an indelible mark even as the club faced relegation to the third division. His subsequent journey with Swansea City witnessed an ascent from the third division to the first, showcasing his impact.

James left an indomitable footprint in the football landscape, gracing teams like Sunderland, Bury, and Newport County. The year 1986 witnessed his triumphant return to Burnley, this time as a youth team manager and occasional player, embodying the essence of dedication and loyalty.
