We’re pleased to announce our 6th Summer signing, having already bought in the likes of Ollie Rowe, Lea Dawson, Antonio Simeone, Tom Carlse, and Sam Mott, we welcome young centre midfielder Josh Wisson in from Herne Bay.

The 20 year old, who was called up to the England school boys’ squad in 2016 whilst playing for Sittingbourne, made over 50 appearances for Herne Bay in 2017/2018, including both league matches against ourselves. He has also trialled Millwall in recent times.

Josh told ‘Ashfordunitedfc.com’ this afternoon:

“I am very pleased to be joining Ashford next season. I’ve had some good chats with Gary [Alexander] and believe we are going to do very well next year.”

Witton scored 5 goals for Herne Bay last campaign, including one against the league champions Carshalton Athletic in a 2-0 victory, and the gaffer told us how he’s looking forward to working with the young midfielder:

“Josh is a young talent with real quality. He’s played for England schoolboys and has great pedigree having been on trial to clubs much higher up the ladder, so that shows us what he’s about. Hopefully he can come and be a big success for Ashford and progress his career. Welcome to the team Josh!”

Great to have you at Ashford United, Josh!
