Woking Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Josh Staunton.
Josh, 21, is a central defender who can also play at right back or as a defensive midfielder. He started his career at Gillingham between the ages of 6-19, moving to Charlton Athletic in 2015 where he captained the under 21 team and had a one-month loan at St Albans City in the Vanarama National League South. Last summer he joined Dagenham & Redbridge, making 36 league appearances and helped Dagenham reach the play-offs in the Vanarama National League.
Josh on why heâ€™s moved to Woking: â€œAfter speaking to Anthony, and speaking to Terell Thomas, I thought this is a club which can help me progress, and a club with great ambition to get into the league, and Iâ€™m looking forward to getting started.â€�
Anthony Limbrick commented: â€œWe have known about Josh since he come through Gillinghamâ€™s academy. His year at Dagenham impressed us especially as they finished in the play-offs. As soon as we found out that he rejected a new deal we were keen to get him to Woking, as we knew the quality he will add to the team.â€�
We welcome Josh to the club!
Weâ€™ll shortly have an interview with Josh, visit either our Facebook page or Twitter at 5.30pm!
