We are delighted to announce the signing of defender Josh Hare, following the expiration of his contract with Dagenham & Redbridge.

Hare becomes our second signing of the summer, joining us with an excellent reputation from the Daggers. The 29-year-old brings a wealth of experience, having made 159 National League appearances, including 79 with Eastleigh FC. He also has experience in League One, having made 39 appearances mainly with Bristol Rovers, as well as during his early years with Gillingham.

The versatile defender primarily plays as a right-back but can also operate as a centre-half, adding vital options to Ross Jenkins’s squad. He is a player who likes to get on the ball and can contribute offensively. In his first interview for the Wood, Josh expressed his excitement by stating, “From the moment I got here, the prospect of promotion is the only thing that has been talked about. We are looking to go up.”

“I’d say I’m a ball-playing defender, whether at right back or centre back. That’s my main attribute, but I can also handle the defensive side of the game.”

“The biggest thing for me is that I’m excited about the prospect of what this season could be.”

Welcome to Mangata Pay UK Stadium at Meadow Park, Josh. We can’t wait to see you in action.
