Former Welsh under-21 international Lloyd James signed for Exeter City this summer, making the move to the south west after a four-year stay at Leyton Orient. 
The 28-year-old began his career at Southampton and was a member of the Saints team that lost in the 2005 FA Youth Cup final to Ipswich Town. Lloyd helped Southampton to lift the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in 2010 as part of a side that featured the likes of Jose Fonte, Adam Lallana and Ricky Lambert. 
A combative midfielder with an eye for a pass, Lloyd moved to Colchester in 2010 and played 51 League games for the U’s between 2010 and 2012. He also spent time on loan at Crawley Town during the 2011/12 campaign, featuring six times for the Reds during a one-month stay. 
The versatile Welshman joined Leyton Orient in the summer of 2012 after turning down the chance of remaining with Colchester. After racking up over a century of appearances for the O’s, including a number of influential performances during the club’s surge to the 2013/14 League One play-off final, Lloyd left for pastures new in May 2016.
