Biography

Son of All White legend Michael McGarry, James moved to Wellington to join the Phoenix academy in January 2014 after his talents were quickly recognised when he made his debut for the Miramar Rangers Central League side aged just fifteen. He quickly graduated to become one of the founding players in the Phoenix Reserve side which joined the Premiership at the start of season 2014/15. After a stint training with the first team, and travelling on their pre-season tour to Fiji, he put pen to paper on his first professional contract aged just 17 in September 2015, then making his debut in Round 17 against the Central Coast Mariners. A utility player who has played at both the U17 and U20 World Cups, at just 19-years-old he’ll be looking to add to his appearances in his third season with the club.
