PFA: Professional Footballers Association

Gordon Taylor, OBE:

"“I was extremely impressed with James’ contributions to the PFA’s Centenary celebrations. In a year with a series of high profile events and a £1,000,000 charitable target, his extensive industry knowledge coupled with a wealth of contacts helped to ensure maximum coverage for this landmark campaign.”"

The Daily Mirror

Dominic Hart, Sports Editor, The Daily Mirror:

"Top operator, and gets results. Good team member, but also the ability to lead. I've worked with James on and off for many years and hold him in very high regard."

Sam Allardyce

Sam Allardyce, West Ham United manager:

"Fletch has proved over a number of years that he is a man you can really trust. He is well connected and well respected and that makes a pleasant change from some of the people that work within the PR and media industry. He understands the way both 'sides of the fence' operate and that insight has been invaluable to me over the past few years. I would not hesitate in recommending him, he is a real asset to any business. Individuals and organisations are fine when everything in the garden is rosey, but when things turn slightly sour it is very reassuring to know somebody like James has your back covered."
