Wales

James Connolly rejoined Rovers in June 2022 on a permanent deal lasting until 2025.

James first joined Rovers on loan from Championship club Cardiff City in January 2022 and made his Gas debut the very same day in our Third Round defeat to Peterborough United in the Emirates FA Cup. 

Nicknamed 'Beefy' by his teammates, James would go on to form a formidable partnership alongside Connor Taylor in the Rovers' defence during the second half of the 2021/22 League Two season. James played 24 times in League Two for Joey Barton's promotion-winning side last campaign in what was his first season in professional football. 

Beefy also scored the first professional goal of his career in our memorable 3-1 away victory against Port Vale in April after connecting with an Antony Evans cross to put Rovers 2-1 up in the tie.
