Career[edit]

Professional[edit]

Johnson began his career with San Juan Jabloteh in Trinidad and Tobago. He played there from 2000 until July 2006. Johnson had trials with Wrexham in July 2006, making a great impression. Denis Smith was very interested in Josh. Even though money was an issue at the time for Wrexham it did not stop him signing Johnson to the club on 8 August 2006. He made almost 30 appearances in the Football League for Wrexham, scoring one goal. He was released by Wrexham in May 2008 following the club's relegation to the Football Conference.[2] Johnson joined Welsh Premier League club Rhyl in August 2008.[3]

International[edit]

Johnson has represented Trinidad and Tobago internationally at various levels. He played for the U-20 national team at the 2001 CONCACAF U-20 Tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. He also played for the U-23 national team at the 2004 CONCACAF Men's Pre-Olympic Tournament in Mexico. He got his first call up to the senior team leading up to a matchup with Cuba during the third round of CONCACAF qualification for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, he has not made the match day roster for a senior team match.
