Josh is Woking's club captain and is now in his fourth year with the club after signing a new deal in the summer of 2021. He has made more than 100 league appearances and more than 120 appearances in all competitions for the club, having been a near ever-present in the side throughout his tenure, establishing himself as one of the best left-backs in non-league football. He originally joined the club in 2018 alongside manager Alan Dowson and several other former Hampton players who subsequently formed the core of the club’s play-off winning side. During his first season, as well as captaining the club to promotion, he helped the Cards reach the third round of the FA Cup, where they met Premier League side Watford. His efforts were rewarded with a clean sweep of the end of season awards in 2019 when he took home the Manager’s, Players’, and Fans’ Player of the Year awards. The following year was also successful, as Woking recorded a tenth place finish on their return to the National League, before the season was curtailed by the pandemic. Last season proved more challenging and he missed much of the first-half of 2021 with a shoulder injury. Now fully recovered, he will be looking to help his team kick on, following a move to full-time football.
He began his career with neighbours Aldershot Town in 2009. From there, he moved to Salisbury and Bashley, before linking up with Dowse for the first time at Kingstonian in 2013. He spent two years with the K’s, reaching a play-off semi-final, before moving to Hampton in 2015. The following campaign saw the Beavers finish as Isthmian League champions and win promotion to National League South. Three successive play-off campaigns followed as Hampton were beaten semi-finalists in 2017 and finalists in 2018, before Josh finally tasted play-off victory with the Cards in 2019.
