The left-back has been Woking’s captain since his arrival at the club in the summer of 2018. Over the past five years he has made more than 200 appearances in all competitions, won promotion to the National League, reached the third round of the FA Cup, an FA Trophy semi-final, and the National League play-offs. During a memorable first season with the club he also won three Player of the Year Awards.
He began his career with neighbours Aldershot Town, graduating from the club’s academy in 2009 before moves to Salisbury, Bashley, and Kingstonian, where he first worked under the management of Alan Dowson. He spent two years with the K’s, reaching a play-off semi-final, before moving with Dowse to Hampton & Richmond Borough 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 and Dowse finally tasted play-off victory with the Cards in 2019.
After following a host of his former Hampton colleagues to Woking, the Cards enjoyed an excellent 2019/20 season, finishing second in National League South and earning promotion via the play-offs. They also enjoyed a run to the third round of the FA Cup where they met Premier League Watford. Woking’s good form continued in 2020/21 where they finished tenth in the shortened National League campaign. The following season proved more challenging, but the Cards still reached an FA Trophy semi-final.
In 2022 both Woking Woking and Josh turned full-time. Despite the departure of long-time manager Dowson in February 2021, he remained one of the first names on the team-sheet, starting every league game for caretaker manager Ian Dyer and new boss Darren Sarll ahead of the summer break, during which he was rewarded with a new contract. Last season, he started all but two of Woking's games in league and cup competitions as the Cards reached the National League play-offs and signed another contract extension in March 2023.
