Sheppey United are delighted to confirm the signing of Josh Wisson from Ashford United.
Whilst starting with Sittingbourne FC, Josh at the age of 17 played for England Schoolboys and was also made captain against Scotland. After helping his country to Centenary Shield glory, he was given an extended trial at Millwall. He eventually missed out on a deal with the Lions – and then broke his wrist on his first day training with Leyton Orient too. Once back with Sittingbourne Josh soon moved to Herne Bay before joining Ashford United where he was a fans favourite.
The 24 year old who used to play a holding midfield role, found great form playing as a No.8 at this time last year – scoring eight goals in 10 matches, including five in successive games in November. With 143 appearances, 24 goals and having featured in two play-off finals whilst at Ashford, Wisson brings great experience at this level with him to Sheppey United.
We’ll get an interview with Josh over the coming week.
