A no nonsense destructive midfielder, Joss Labadie epitomises County's resilience and never-give-up spirit.

Joss Labadie began his career at West Brom.  Whilst playing multiple times for the reserve team and being send out on successful loans, Joss was unable to make an impression at the Club and eventually moved to Tranmere Rovers.  A two-year spell at Notts County followed, then a year at Torquay United before moving to Dagenham & Redbridge.

He joined The Exiles in June 2016 on a two-year deal and made an excellent start for the Club with a match-winning goal on his debut.

Labadie had a frustrating season with injuries keeping him out for much of the middle of the season.  He returned to fitness in March.

One of Michael Flynn's first decisions as manager was to make Joss the Club's captain.  The midfielder didn't let him down immediately settling in to the role and leading by example.  He scored an 89th minute winner on his first outing as captain vs Crewe.  This was also Michael Flynn's first game in charge.

Joss was a key figure in the team's "Great Escape".
