Club career[edit]

Born in Leicester, East Midlands, Joseph previously played for a number of clubs, including Hull City and Blackpool. Joseph played 86 games for Hull, including playing a part in back-to-back promotions from Division Three (which became League Two) and League One to the Championship, scoring his only goal for the club against Macclesfield. In January 2006 he joined Blackpool, initially on loan from Hull, before making the deal permanent. He was not involved in the club's League One play-off winning campaign in 2006–07, not starting a first-team game between a 4–4 League Trophy draw with Accrington Stanley on 31 October 2006, and his release by the club on 31 May 2007.[1]

He signed for newly relegated League Two side Rotherham United in June 2007. Marc Joseph scored on 29 December 2007 his first Rotherham goal with a fine shot from 25 yards which became the winning goal against Notts County, giving Rotherham their first league win against them after 50 years. Joseph joined Altrincham on 6 August 2010.[2]

In the summer of 2011, Joseph joined Kendal Town on a free transfer, becoming the club captain.

In March 2013 Joseph left and joined Northern Premier League side Witton Albion. He made his debut on 1 April making 9 appearances and scoring 1 goal against his former club Kendal Town.
