Josh was signed by Darlington after he failed to agree a new contract with Gateshead during the summer.
Josh started his career at Northern League Sunderland Nissan, before moving on to Newcastle Blue Star, Blyth and Whitley Bay, for whom he scored in their 6-1 win over Wroxham in the 2010 Vase final.
He moved to Gateshead soon after that final, and he was top scorer for them with 15 goals in the 2012-13, a scoring rate that earned him two England C caps and a move to Football League club Carlisle. In November 2013 he had a loan spell at Cambridge and then later another at Gateshead, whom he rejoined in the summer of 2015. However, after a good start at the club, he suffered a shoulder injury which meant that he missed most of the season.
