Young keeper joins Wealdstone.
He has joined Wealdstone for an initial month, looking for regular match time for the National League South side.
They currently sit in mid-table but a run of positive results could see them make up ground on the play-off positions.
Bransgrove was keen to get going with the non-leaguers, who the U's defeated in the First Round of the FA Cup earlier this season.
He told the official website: "I can't wait for my first game there. I went to Bishop's Stortford last season so have a good idea about what to expect."
"Having missed a lot of football, I went to Maldon for a month a little while ago and that really helped me get my fitness and sharpness back.
"Wealdstone are a couple of leagues above that so I'm sure it will be tougher but I'm looking forward to the challenge."
The twenty year old could be a busy man in the next few weeks, with Wealdstone having a heavy schedule.
That suits James, as he said: "I think that we have seven or eight games in the next month and playing games is what I'm most looking forward to after missing so much football over the past couple of years."
If you can't get to the U's game at Port Vale on Saturday, why not pop over to Concord to see him in action.
Wealdstone's first opponents in James' loan spell are Concord Rangers, the U's conquerors in the Essex Senior Cup Semi-Final earlier this week.
