Josh is a fast medium bowler and late middle order batsman who represents Scotland. He made his First Class debut for Middlesex in 2010 and not long after followed an ODI debut for Scotland. In 2014 he moved to Somerset to pursue further opportunities. He was a member of the Scotland team for the 2015 World Cup finishing with a team high 15 wickets. In 2018 he took 34 championship wickets and helped lead Somerset to the championship final in 2020 with another strong haul of wickets.
Having grown up in the countryside (Suffolk) Josh has always loved spending time outdoors. His girlfriend Emily owns horses so he enjoys spending time with them. Even though Josh can’t ride he helps out where he can.
Josh also enjoys running and listening to music. He finds it a great way to switch off from the world which is great for his mental and physical wellbeing.
Recently Josh has also pursued an interest in coaching. Which has lead him to an Ambassador role at Primary Sports and Education.
This is where some of his fondest memories are from cricket growing up, which ultimately lead to his cricket career. So this is something Josh is passionate about and he wants to help ensure that children from all backgrounds are not only given the opportunity to participate but also develop an understanding of health and wellbeing.
