Josh arrived at the Crown Oil Arena from Scunthorpe in May 2012 to start his third spell with the club.

After impressive displays in the 2013/14 promotion campaign, he committed himself to Rochdale for a further two years, a deal which was later extended until the end of last term.

Further contract talks then saw Josh sign for Dale for another two seasons, keeping him at the Crown Oil Arena until June 2020.

Lillis 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 went back to Scunthorpe at the end of his loan spell, but found his chances limited at Glanford Park and left The Iron at the end of 2011/12.

Aged 32, Josh made his 278th appearance for Rochdale in their game at AFC Wimbledon in December 2018, meaning he has played more games for the club than any other goalkeeper.
