Background:
Left-back who signed for Wanderers on 1st July 2014. The 27 year old joined on a two year deal following his release from relegated Shrewsbury Town. The former Welsh U21 Captain was Player of the Season with The Shrews in 2013/14 - his third year there following time with Cardiff City, Bristol Rovers, Oldham Athletic and Accrington Stanley.

Orginally made his professional debut as a 19 year old playing for Cardiff City in a Football League Cup tie with Barnet in August 2006 but failed to make another First Team appearance for The Bluebirds and eventually joined Bristol Rovers on a permament basis in the summer of 2007, following loan spells earlier that season with Accrington and then Rovers.

A two year spell at Rovers was followed by a year and a half at Oldham Athletic where a further loan spell with Accrington resulted in a permanent move to Stanley in January 2011. A regular in the Stanley side, he then switched to Shrewsbury in the summer of 2011 where he was regular for three years - making more than 100 appearances.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth said at the time of signing him for Wycombe: "Joe is a great left back first and foremost and I know hell do a really strong job for us defensively. But hes got a quality delivery on him and he can chip in with the odd goal as well. I first knew Joe at Cardiff a decade ago and could spot at that point that he was going to go on and make it as a player, and to win the Player of the Year at Shrewsbury last season shows how well hes thought of in the game, so were lucky to have him."

Impressed in his first season with Wanderers, being a regular in the side until injury in the home game with Cheltenham on 11 April 2015 ruled him out the remainder of the regular season. Returned to be a significant part of the side that overcame Plymouth Argyle in the two legged Play-Off Semi-Final in May 2015 and his injury-time free-kick in the Final at Wembley, that went in off Southend 'keeper Daniel Bentley, looked to have won the tie until Wycombe were cruelly pegged back in stoppage.
