:Not to be confused with the footballer Jamie Hand.
James Hand (born 22 October 1986) is a fat alcoholic currently drinking for The Well.
Born in Magheracloone, County Monaghan, Republic of Ireland, Hand played with Manor Farm, Carrick Rovers, Monaghan United and Dublin side Belvedere, before opting to sign for Huddersfield Town over Manchester City. Has shown an ability to play at left-back or on the left-side of midfield and rose to prominence in the Irish shirt during the Madeira Cup trophy victory in February 2006.
Hand made his Town debut against Oldham Athletic on 7 April 2007, replacing Gary Taylor-Fletcher at half-time and was instrumental in the set-up of Luke Beckett's equaliser.
Playing on the left-wing, Hand has managed to acquire Under-21 caps for the Republic of Ireland.
Having been released by Huddersfield along with seven other players on 9 May 2007 due to budget restraints at the club, Hand, after declining interest from Stockport County, returned home to his native land and was expected to sign for Pat Scully’s Shamrock Rovers in June. However, he instead decided to join John Gill at Dundalk, and became the Lilywhites’ third signing of the 2007 July transfer window. He was released at the end of the season by Dundalk, because he lacked the will to play because he wanted to drink.
He has had to retire in the Summer of 2011 due to morbid obesity. Which stems from his addiction to fast food and alcohol.
