Joss Christopher Labadie (born 31 August 1990) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Newport County.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Croydon, Labadie started his football career with West Bromwich Albion, joining their academy in 2006 after being spotted playing for Barking Abbey College of Sport and being invited for a trial. In the 2007–08 season, he played 19 times for Albion's reserve team, scoring three times. It earned him his first professional contract in the summer of 2008, on a one-year deal with the option of a second season.[3]

Before he was able to break into the Albion first team, he was sent on loan to League Two side Shrewsbury Town on 1 January 2009.[4] He played for Shrewsbury two days later in a league match against Bradford City at Valley Parade, in a game which finished 0–0,[5] but subsequently fractured his foot in training and returned to West Brom less than a week after he had left the club.[6] He returned to Shrewsbury on an initial month-long loan on 3 August.[7] He made his first appearance of the 2009–10 season in a 3–1 victory over Burton Albion, during which he scored a free kick from 30 yards.[8] After extending his loan spell until January,[9] Labadie scored on 12 September 2009, in a 2–0 win over Crewe Alexandra.[10] After adding three more goals against Northampton Town, Cheltenham Town and Morecambe (also was sent-off during the match),[11] He, however, returned to West Brom in November, with Shrewsbury manager Paul Simpson saying "I've been disappointed with his recent attitude".[12]

Later the same year, Labadie had another loan spell in League Two, this time with Cheltenham Town.[13] He made his Cheltenham Town debut on 21 November 2009, where he started the whole game, in a 1–0 loss against Morecambe.[14] A handful of first-team appearances led Labadie to have his loan spell extended on two occasions, all the way up to February.[15] He went on to make eleven appearances for the side before returning to his parent club in February.

On 14 May 2010, Labadie was released by West Brom.[16]

Tranmere Rovers[edit]

On 24 March 2010, Labadie signed for Tranmere Rovers on loan until the end of 2009–10 season.[17] He made his club debut during a 3–0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.[18] It wasn't until on 17 April 2010 when he scored his first goal, in a 3–1 win over Exeter City, followed up by scoring again, in a 2–1 loss against Brentford three days later.[19] Labadie also scored against Stockport County on the last game of the season, who survived relegation by one point.[20]

Upon learning his release from the club at the end of the 2009–10 season, the club immediately made a contract offer to Labadie.[21] Then, on 20 May 2010, Labadie signed a two-year contract with Tranmere shortly after being released by West Brom.[22] Since joining the club on a permanent basis, Labadie was a first team regular, although he was plagued by injuries,[23] Labadie was sent-off[24] for a violent conduct during a 1–0 win over Notts County on 20 November 2010.[25] After serving a two-match suspension,[26] Labadie scored on his return against Rochdale on 1 January 2011 despite losing 3–2.[27] However, during a 2–0 loss against Milton Keynes Dons on 15 January 2011, Labadie was booked for “simulation” or diving in the first half, which Manager Les Parry insisted that he is not a cheat.[28] Despite this, he scored again in a 2–1 loss against Brentford on 22 February 2011.[29] After serving his suspension on two occasions,[30] Labadie, nevertheless, made the total of 37 appearances and scoring two times in his first permanent season at the club.

In the 2011–12 season, Labadie started the start of the season well when he scored two goals against Notts County and Sheffield United[31] He then scored two goals against Stevenage and Bury.[32] However, Labadie's first team opportunities were soon limited, due to being on the substitute bench and his own injury concern.[33] Despite this, he scored again on 24 March 2012, in a 2–0 win over Exeter City.[34] After the match, Manager Ronnie Moore commented on his Labadie's performance: "Joss took his opportunity well."[35] After finishing his second season, making the total of 31 appearances and scoring 5 times in all competitions, He was released at the end of the 2011–12 season.[36]

Notts County[edit]

On 9 July 2012, Labadie signed a one-year contract with Notts County.[37]

He made his competitive debut for the club in the first round of the League Cup against Bradford City.[38] He played his first league game for the club in a 2–1 win over Crewe Alexandra coming on as a substitute in the first half to replace the injured Tom Williams.[39] He scored his first goal for the club in a 2–2 draw away at Oldham Athletic.[40] However, he soon found himself out of the first team and appeared on the substitute bench.[41] After returning from a loan spell at Torquay United, He then scored the only goal with a 35-yard free kick in a 1–0 win away at Doncaster Rovers, resulting him being named Team of the Week.[42][43] After making the total of 28 appearances and scoring two times, it was announced by Notts County that he had been offered a contract extension on 1 May 2013.[44]

Ahead of the 2013–14 season, Labadie signed a one-year contract extension, keeping him until 2014.[45] Labadie appeared in the first team at the start of the season despite the club's poor start to the season.[46] He then scored on 21 September 2013, in a 2–0 win over Tranmere Rovers.[47] As a result, he was awarded for September's Goal of the Month.[48] However, his first team chance was soon limited.[49]

Torquay United[edit]

After being unable to break into the first team Labadie joined Torquay for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.[50] He scored his first goal for Torquay in a 2–2 draw with Dagenham and Redbridge. Four days later he scored his second goal in a 1–1 draw with Southend United.[51] After adding another goal against Chesterfield,[52] He scored again on 1 April 2013, in a 3–1 loss against Bradford City, in what turns out to be his last appearance for the side.[53] He was recalled from his loan at Torquay on 5 April, after scoring 4 goals in 7 appearances for the club.[54]

On 3 January 2014, Labadie re-joined Torquay United on loan until 30 January 2014.[55] On 31 January 2014, his contract with Notts County was terminated by mutual consent, and he signed a contract until the end of the season with Torquay United.[56] Just 3 weeks into his contract, it was announced by The FA that it was investigating an alleged biting incident in the Football League Two game against Chesterfield on 15 February 2014. A number of Chesterfield players claimed they were bitten by a then unnamed player during the game.[57] On 4 March, the FA announced that Labadie had been charged with misconduct for an incident in the 49th minute of the game.[58] Three days later Torquay and their manager, Chris Hargreaves, announced they were contesting the charge.[59] On 12 March, The FA announced that a commission had found Labadie guilty of biting Ollie Banks and banned Labadie for 10 games and fined him £2,000 for the incident. The ban mirrored punishment given to Luis Suárez for a similar incident in April 2013.[60] The day before the charges was announced, Labadie scored in a 2–1 win over Rochdale.[61] The ban took him through to the end of the season when manager Hargreaves told the press that it was unlikely that Labadie would be offered a new contract after the club's relegation to non-league.[62]

Dagenham & Redbridge[edit]

After being released by Torquay, Labadie signed for Dagenham & Redbridge on 8 July 2014 on a two-year contract.[63]

Labadie made his Dagenham & Redbridge debut in the first round of the League Cup against Brentford, where he played 86 minutes, which saw the club lose 4–2 on penalty shootout following a 6–6 draw through 120 minutes.[64] He then made his league debut for the club, where he played 18 minutes after coming on as a substitute, in a 2–1 loss against Burton Albion.[65] He then scored his first goals for the club on 27 September 2014, in a 2–0 win over York City.[66] Although he suffered a hamstring injury,[67] he found himself in and out of the first team.[68] In April 2015 he was banned for six months after being found guilty of biting an opponent in a game on 21 March 2015 against Stevenage. Late in the ill-tempered game, Labadie had challenged Stevenage player, Ronnie Henry. The bite occurred after Labadie had failed to release the ball after it had gone out for a throw-in.[69] In his first season at Dagenham & Redbridge, Labadie went on to make a total of 27 appearances and scoring 2 times.

At the start of the 2015–16 season, Labadie remained out of the first team, having just four months of serving his suspension.[70] It wasn't until on 20 October 2015 when he made his first appearance, coming on as a late substitute, in a 2–2 draw against York City.[71] He then scored his first goal of the season, in a 1–1 draw against Plymouth Argyle on 28 November 2015.[72] In absence of Andre Boucaud, Labadie was his stand-in captain during the 2015–16 season and regained his first team since returning from suspension.[73] Labadie scored two goals in two matches between 28 December 2015 and 1 January 2016, both winning against Stevenage and Exeter City.[74] Despite being sidelined over suspension and injury on two occasions later in the season,[75] Labadie scored again on 5 April 2016, as well as, assisting another goal, in a 2–1 win over Morecambe.[76] Following the club's relegation to the non-league at the end of the 2016–17 season,[77] Labadie made the total of 34 appearances and scoring 5 times. Despite this, Labadie was awarded by the season ticket holder.[78]

However, Labadie was then released by the club upon expiry of his contract.[79]

Newport County[edit]

On 7 June 2016, Labadie signed a two-year deal with Newport County.[80] Upon joining the club, Labadie was given a number six shirt.[81]

Labadie scored on his debut for Newport on 6 August 2016 versus Mansfield Town in the opening game of the season, in which Mansfield won the match 3–2.[82] Since making his debut for the club, Labadie quickly became a first team regular until he suffered an injury during a 2–0 loss against Doncaster Rovers on 17 September 2016.[83] After being sidelined for three months,[84] returning to the first team from an injury in early-December, Labadie scored again in a 3–1 loss against Crawley Town on 17 December 2016.[85] However, his return was short-lived when he suffered a knee injury in a 1–0 loss against Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup Campaign.[86]

Labadie made his return to the first team, in a 4–0 defeat to Leyton Orient on 4 March 2017.[87] In a follow up against Crewe Alexandra, Labadie scored again on 11 March 2017, in a 2–1 win.[88] However, he was sent-off for an off-the-ball altercation with Crawley Town's Josh Yorwerth, who also sent-off, in a 1–0 win on 1 April 2017.[89] After serving a three-match suspension,[90] Towards the end of the season, with the club facing relegation to the non-league, Labadie has been captained for the side as a stand in for Scot Bennett and David Pipe.[91] Eventually, Labadie helped Newport County avoid relegation.[92] In his first season at the club, Labadie made the total of 22 appearances and scoring 3 times in all competitions.

Ahead of the 2017–18 season, Labadie was appointed as the new captain, succeeding Bennett.[93] Despite having an operation on his wrist at the end of the 2016–17 season,[94] In addition, Labadie switched number shirt from 6 to 4.[95] In the opening game of the season, he set up one of the goals, in a 3–3 draw against Stevenage.[96] Several weeks later, on 22 August 2017, he scored his first goal of the season, in a 5–1 loss against Leeds United in the second round of League Cup.[97] After suffering a groin injury,[98] he scored two goals in two matches between 30 September 2017 and 7 October 2017 against Luton Town and Yeovil Town.[99] However, Labadie, once again, suffered a groin injury for the second time this season.[100]
