Joshua Daniel "Josh" Brizell (born 15 October 1991) is an English footballer who plays for Hyde as a defender.

He started his career in the youth teams at Rochdale, captaining both the youth and reserve sides before working his way into the first team. He joined Hyde in 2011, and was sent out on loan to Ossett Town later the same year. He has featured as a first-team regular for Hyde since his return.

Career[edit]

Rochdale[edit]

Born in Liverpool,[2] Brizell came through the ranks at Rochdale and captained both the youth side and reserve side,[3] before making his debut for the first team on 11 August 2009, coming on as a second-half substitute for Marcus Holness in a 3–0 League Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.[4]

Hyde[edit]

Following his release from Rochdale, he joined Conference North side Hyde on 14 October 2011.[3] He joined Ossett Town on an emergency loan cover basis for one match in early November 2011, a 5–0 defeat away to Witton Town on 11 November 2011.[5]

He returned to they to make his debut for the club coming on as a second-half substitute in their 0–0 draw away at Hinckley United on 14 November 2011.[6] He made his first start for the club less than a week later as part of a 3–2 home win over Colwyn Bay.[7] He finished his first season with Hyde having played 23 games in all competitions, scoring no goals, helping his side to the Conference North title for the 2011–12 season.[8]

He signed a new deal at the club which would keep him at Hyde until the end of the 2012–13 season, he made his first appearance of that season on the opening day draw away at Braintree Town, Hyde first ever game in the Conference Premier.[9] He scored his first goal for the club in March 2013, scoring the winner in a 2–1 win over Cambridge United at Ewen Fields.[10] But just two games later he received the first red-card of his career for serious foul-play as his side drew 1–1 at Barrow.[11] He finished his first full season with the club having played 40 times scoring one goal.[12]

On 21 June 2013, Brizell signed a new one-year contract with Hyde.[13] He received another red card in August 2013 on the opening day of the 2013–14 season, following a first-half tackle on Al Bangura as Hyde lost 8–0 at The New Lawn to Forest Green Rovers.[14] He picked up his second red-card of the season in November for a late-tackle in Hyde's 4–0 defeat away at FC Halifax Town.[15]

Style of play[edit]

Brizell plays as a full-back, but he is just as comfortable attacking as he is defending.[16]
