"Newport seem like a great club to play for" - Josh Pask on joining Exile

11 January 2022

New County signing Josh Pask gave his first interview as an Exile to the club website shortly after putting pen to paper on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Josh joins the setup at Rodney Parade from Championship side Coventry until the end of the season and becomes the first signing of the James Rowberry era.

"My agent said that Newport were interested and I was interested from the start! I'm looking to come out and play and it seems like a great club to play for," Josh said on signing for the club.

Pask graduated from West Ham United's academy and had loan spells out at Dagenham and Redbridge as well as Gillingham while he was with the Hammers.

He then joined Coventry in 2019 on a permanent basis and was part of the side that earned promotion from League One.

"I know [Wayne Hatswell] from my time at Gillingham and I have a good relationship with him so I was looking forward to coming. It was great [working with him].

"I was only there for half a season but I thoroughly enjoyed my time - Hats was a great guy and I liked playing for him. I'm very much looking forward to the same here."

Pask can't wait to start playing under manager Rowberry and says the pair have had some "great conversations" ahead of the deal being finalised.

 "(The gaffer) called me a few times over the past few days and we've had some great conversations. He seems really eager to getting the ball down and playing. Hopefully we can get ourselves in a good position for the end of the season.

"I'm a ball-playing centre half, looking to start attacks from defence. I'm quite tall and like to use my physicality as well, I enjoy getting the ball down and playing.

"We'll go out and express ourselves every game, playing game by game and seeing where that brings us at the end of the season. I think if we keep playing football the way they've been playing then the results will come.

"It's a fantastic ground, the gaffer mentioned about the pitch being immaculate and it really is."

Josh will wear the number 4 shirt at County.
