In the final of the U18 Singles Championship James narrowly lost to Adam King of Cwm Welfare Bowls Club.

This achievement at County level now qualifies James to compete in the Welsh Bowling Association Championship Finals to be held at Llandrindod Bowls Club on Sunday 15 to Friday 20 August for the U18s Singles Champion of Wales.
