James restores Llanelli link

Former Wales international Leighton James has rejoined Welsh Premiership strugglers Llanelli FC as manager.
Former Welsh international Leighton James has rejoined Welsh Premiership strugglers Llanelli FC as manager - two years after leaving the club.

Difference of opinion
The former Burnley FC, Queens Park Rangers FC and Derby County FC winger had taken the Stebonheath team to fifth in the old League of Wales before quitting after falling out with chairman Bobby Jones.

Bottom club
But he has agreed to return to replace Peter Nicholas, who has gone to English non-league side Newport County AFC. Llanelli are currently bottom of the table with one win in 14 games this season.
