James – a product of the South-West – previously played for Charnwood and Loughborough as part of the Leicester Riders programme and was selected amongst the top junior players to compete at the Under-19 Women’s game at the Hoopsfix All-Star Classic last summer.
“We are so happy to see Molly join our programme,” said Queens head coach Jay Marriott. “For Molly, we think we are the perfect fit for her style of game and we are in a place where we can give her the time necessary to grow into this level of play.
“There is no doubt she has huge potential and we will work with her to continue her development.”
James is in line to make a debut for the 3-6 Queens on the road against Caledonia Pride this weekend as the league debutants look to make a push for the playoffs, currently sitting in ninth.
