Born: Derby, 24th June 1987

Josh signed a two-year deal at Spotland in May 2012 to start his third spell with the club. After impressive displays in Dale’s 2013/14 promotion campaign, Josh committed himself to Rochdale for a further two years.

The goalkeeper first joined Dale on an emergency loan from Scunthorpe in October 2009, playing in a 4-0 win at Bournemouth, before returning to Spotland for the first half of the 2010/11 campaign.

The son of former Derby and Manchester City player Mark Lillis, Josh went back to Scunthorpe at the end of his loan spell, but found his chances limited at Glanford Park and left the club at the end of 2011/12.

Aged 28, he also played on loan at Notts County and Grimsby during his time with The Iron.
