Huddersfield Town completed the signing of forward Josh Koroma from Vanarama National League champions Leyton Orient ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

Josh was born on 9 November 1998 in Southwark, London, eventually joining the Leyton Orient Academy as a 15-year-old.

He didn’t have to wait long for his First Team debut for Orient, which came in a league game against Barnet in April 2016 whilst still an Academy scholar.

Koroma signed his first professional contract with the Club five months later and went on to establish himself in the First Team during a difficult 2016/17 season in League 2, making 22 appearances.

His first senior goals came in some style; Josh grabbed three goals and an assist during a thumping 4-0 win at Newport County, becoming the youngest Orient player to score a hat-trick in the process.

Josh’s form was soon rewarded with a debut for the England C side – the team that represents the country at non-league level – in May 2017.

An extended two-year contract followed in the summer of 2018 after another 31 appearances; largely on the wing.

A switch to a striking position saw Koroma take off and play a key role in Orient’s championship-winning campaign last year, netting 11 goals and seven assists in 35 start for the Os.

During his first season with Town following his summer move, Josh made seven appearances before going on loan to Rotherham United, where he made a further five appearances.

Josh came into his own during the next two season, seeing him score eight goals in 20 league appearances, as well as assist a further two goals in the 2020/21 season. Then, he scored four goals with two assists in 34 appearances in the 2021/22 season as he helped Town reach the Play-Off Final against Nottingham Forest.

The 2022/23 season saw Josh go on loan to Sky Bet League One Portsmouth for the first half of the season where he scored two goals and created one assist in 16 appearances.

His loan ended and he returned to Town in January 2023, which allowed him to play a vital role in securing Sky Bet Championship safety for the Terriers. Josh scored four crucial goals and created one assist in his 19 appearances for Town.

With Neil Warnock back at the helm for 2023/24, he made re-signing Josh to a two-year contract one of his top priorities.
