Josh Edwards Signing

Basingstoke Town are delighted to announce the signing of central defender Josh Edwards.

The hardworking centre half joins us from Flackwell Heath who we thank for their assistance in the transfer.
Josh is a powerful & quick centre half who will join the squad for their two training sessions this week and will go into the squad to face Barnstaple at the weekend.
Dan Brownlie said on the signing:
‘We’ve been long term admirers of Josh. He’s a real battler and someone we believe will add a sturdiness to our defensive line. Along with the imminent return of Scott Armsworth; this will be a huge boost to the squad in an area we greatly need to improve.’ 
 
‘Despite recent results, Aaron Watkins has already proved to be a great signing and we’ve no doubt Josh will add strength to our central core.’
Josh Edwards spoke about joining the club:
‘I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead, can’t wait to get started Saturday. Really pleased to be joining Basingstoke; a huge club in non league. Can’t wait to get started and help the club climb the table.’
Dan Brownlie finished by saying ‘The past few weeks have been unacceptable by anyone’s standards and I made a promise that we would get lads in that would improve our squad. These two latest signings certainly signify that intent. We won’t be finishing their either – as we need to improve in a few other areas. We want all of our signings to be long term investments who grow with the club. Their attitude towards signing for Basingstoke has been first class, they’ve both showed a real want to be here and that is exactly what we are after.’
