After almost a decade in the Lilywhites’ academy, Josh Earl signed on professional terms in April 2017 following an impressive season in the second year of his scholarship.
After signing professional terms, Josh spent one month with Lancaster City on a work experience deal from March to April, providing him with the invaluable experience of senior football in preparation for first team football.
The defender, from Liverpool, has been with PNE since the age of nine and played a key role in the youth team’s run to the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals in 2016/17 – the furthest any PNE side had managed since 1960 – scoring twice on route to the last eight.
Josh broke in to the first team in August 2017, and featured 20 times throughout the 2017/18 Championship campaign, and made a further 16 appearances during the following season.
