Born: Manchester, 26th September 1993
Joe is a young striker who joined Dale from Northwich Victoria in March 2013, signing a dual contract which allowed him to appear for both clubs before the end of that season.
Keith Hill gave the 22-year-old his debut as a late substitute against Plymouth on the final day of the 2012/13 campaign and he responded with the only goal of the game, glancing in a header after a pinpoint cross from another debutant, Scott Tanser.
A few days later Joe was rewarded with a two-year contract at Spotland and he chipped-in with three important goals to help the club to promotion.
Joe’s stay at Spotland was then extended further and he is contracted to Dale until next summer.
