An energetic right back, Joe spent last season with Ilkeston, where he became a popular member of their side. And with plenty of years ahead of him, Joe promises to become an exciting member of the Trinity squad ahead of the new campaign. Of the acquisition, the Trinity Head Coach had this to say. "I feel Joe’s signing sets the tone for the type of player and person we are looking to recruit this summer. He is a high energy, forward thinking, relentless full back who I am sure the Gainsborough supporters will warm to."

"He is full of endeavour and enthusiasm and I feel we have sealed a really astute bit of business recruiting young Joe. In my four years working at the top end of University football, there are a handful of players that have stood out way above the level, a level which is full of ex-Scholars and young Professional footballers, Joe is most definitely in that bracket."

"I have watched him at Ilkeston and seen him have moments in games where he has looked too athletic and energetic for the level. He has played against my teams and controlled the game from right full back. His physical and mental attributes will be excellent at this level of football and with a bit of guidance technically and tactically I feel we could have a top player in our ranks who could easily push on in the game."

As he spoke, the young full backs’ enthusiasm was clear to see, "I’m delighted to sign for Gainsborough and can’t wait to get started. It’s an exciting time to be a Gainsborough player and I think we’ll surprise a lot of people next season". Welcome to Gainsborough, Joe!
