Date of birth
Josh Falkingham started his footballing career with Leeds United at the age of eight before joining Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone after 11 years at his hometown club. The central midfielder then spent time north of the border at The Saints, Arbroath and Dunfermline Athletic, whom he Captained and helped gain promotion to the Scottish Championship.
A return to England in 2016 saw Falkingham sign for Darlington before a move to Town proved too tempting to turn down.
Falkingham's first season at Harrogate Town saw him Captain the side to promotion to the National League and be named in the National League North Team of the Year.
Our Skipper repeated the trick two years later, Captaining Town to Promotion Final success at Wembley Stadium and earning promotion to League Two on the back of a season in which our Captain was named in the National League Team of the Year.
Falkingham then lead Town to their third piece of silverware during his time at the club in May 2021, scoring the winning goal at Wembley Stadium and lifting the FA Trophy.
