James Carson profile

  • 5'10'' Guard
    James made his basketball comeback for the 'Backs after spending a few years travelling the world and climbing mountains. He was Edgbarrow captain when they won the 1991 County Cup and played a season for Lodden Valley in the early noughties. A tenacious defender but there were expletives when Jimmy missed a shot or turned the ball over! In his one season for the Silverbacks Jimmy will be best remembered for his numerous 3 point bank shots and wearing knee high socks and headband despite continuos ridicule. Off the court Jimmy is a huge Liverpool FC fan, devoted godfather to Matthew Daines and a charity marathon runner. After one season Jimmy decided to leave the team as he would rather sit on his sofa than on the bench!
