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 he’s moved to Woking: “After 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 I’m looking forward to getting started.”
Anthony Limbrick commented: “We have known about Josh since he come through Gillingham’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.”
We welcome Josh to the club!
We’ll shortly have an interview with Josh, visit either our Facebook page or Twitter at 5.30pm!
