We are delighted to announce the signing of winger Josh Coley from National League side Maidenhead United for an undisclosed fee.
Josh, who signs on a two-year contract, was born in Stevenage but began his career with York City and progressed through the youth side, before moving back down south, featuring for the likes of Hitchin Town, Histon, Arlesey and Baldock Town before joining Norwich City in 2018.
He featured heavily for the Canaries under-23s, before making his way to Scottish Championship outfit Dunfermline Athletic. After a short stint at Stotfold in the Spartan South Midlands League, he joined Alan Devonshire's Maidenhead.
Coley has been highly rated in the top tier of non-league football and scored five times for the Magpies last season, assisting a further seven goals in 37 appearances.
Josh will wear the prestigious no.31 shirt, which is funded by the 1931 Fund, who have supported numerous first team players over the years. To find out more about the 1931 Fund, click here.
"Josh is a good attacking player and someone we've watched consistently throughout the last season for Maidenhead," Matt Taylor said of his first summer signing.
"He has had a taste of a professional environment at Norwich, and in Scotland, and that will prepare him really well for what is next.
"He is someone who always wants to take the opportunity on. He is as quick with the ball as he is without it, and we also have a lot of time to improve certain aspects of his game.
"We're really pleased to get this deal over the line early and thankful to Maidenhead for allowing us to do that. Both parties were very respectful when we put that contract offer in to Josh. The fee remains undisclosed for the benefits of both sides and Josh himself.
"We have had a host of players who have gone onto big things and should he do so, it would reward both ourselves and Maidenhead."
