Davison spent last season with Isthmian League Premier Division side Enfield Town and after a spell in non-league, he will be hoping to make an impact in the Addicks’ young sides in the hopes of earning a longer deal.

Speaking upon the announcement of Davison’s arrival, academy manager Steve Avory has this to say:

“He’s a centre-forward and by that I mean someone who plays right through the middle. He gives us something different to what we felt we had with our strikers. He shows up for the ball well, he holds up the ball well, he’ll get himself into goal scoring positions and he’s certainly proved that in the league games so far.

“The one thing that impresses you with Josh straight away when you watch him train is his absolute 100% work ethic each and every day. He’s very very keen to succeed and you can see the desire in the way he trains.”
