Versatile Josh Bickerstaff is returning to Top Field for the 2018-19 season. Josh is a defender who is equally comfortable at left back or in central defence, and can also play in midfield.

Josh was voted both Manager’s and Players’ Player of the Season for 2017-18, making 52 appearances and notching his best ever goal tally of five. Since joining in 2011 from Stotfold, he has played 245 matches for the Canaries, scoring ten goals.

Mark Burke said:

“I am very happy to have retained the services of Josh Bickerstaff who can play in a variety of positions and has rejected an approach from Biggleswade Town to remain with Hitchin. I know he will form a good relationship with both Dan Webb and Matt Spring in the spine of the team providing a solid foundation for the young players to develop. Like Dan, Josh is at a prime age and I am confident we will see consistent performances from him throughout the season.”
