Teams Lauderdale FC
Preferred Foot




Josh is a fast moving defender/wingman that has an uncanny knack of being able to read the play to get in the best position to defend and receive the ball. Following a quiet season in 2011 he went from strength to strength in 2012‐2013 and again in 2014.

With his hard work and dedication, Josh was selected by the Brisbane Lions at pick number 81 in the 2014 AFL Draft.

Tasmanian U18 Coach Adam Sanders statement about Josh:

“Tall, composed running defender who makes good decisions with the ball by hand and foot. Josh has great closing speed and can play on a range of different types of forwards. Josh is also developing his game to be able to run through the midfield as well in 2014.”
