Some interesting facts about Luke James for Bristol Rovers supporters.



(1). He has scored TWICE in one game for Hartlepool United against Bristol Rovers at The Memorial Stadium.

This was on Saturday 21st September 2013 in a 2-2 draw. Matt Harrold and JJOT scored the BRFC goals.

(2). He has only played 162 minutes in EFL Division ONE games this season despite appearing 9 times.

The record books, in isolation, might suggest a poor scoring record based on appearances only.

(3). In his first 19 Football league games for Hartlepool United he scored only 3 goals.

This is an identical record to that of an “ex-Bristol Rovers striker” during the non-league vacation.

(4). Despite only being 22, he has been considered good enough to play regularly in the previous three seasons.

His time at Hartlepool United, Bradford City and Peterborough United has seen him play 98+53 league games.

(5). During one season at Hartlepool United he was a regular starter and scored 16 goals in 49 appearances.

This season was the 2013/14 season when he was still a teenager and learning his game.
