Nickname: Josh

Josh was born in Kendal in Cumbria but has no memories of this as he moved to New Zealand aged 2. They settled in his mum’s hometown of Methven. Josh played rugby from a young age, he started at Methven U6s. He also enjoyed his cricket in the summer months.

At age 17 Josh moved away to fulfil a scholarship at St Andrew’s College. He represented the first team at fly-half. He graduated from St Andrew’s and decided to go to Canterbury University where he studied Sports Coaching. While studying Josh played for Christchurch, this continued for four years while he finished his degree.

In September 2022 Josh decided to move back to England to see a bit of the world and start working. His grandparents still resided in Kirkby Lonsdale so this was a natural choice for Josh to put down some roots and find a club. Josh started playing for Kirkby Lonsdale at the start of the 22/23 season under ex-Tyke and head coach Scott Armstrong. Josh impressed Scott with his training and playing performances who made the call to Rob Rawlinson. Josh was invited down to train with the Tykes and then all parties agreed a loan so that Josh could finish out his season fighting for a Tykes shirt.
