Josh Coulson's Biography

Defender Josh Coulson joined the O’s initially until January 2018, having spent 10 years at the Abbey Stadium.

Handed his Cambridge United debut in October 2007 as a substitute in a 2-2 home draw with Halifax Town, Coulson went on to make a total of 17 appearances during his first season in senior football.

Once established within the U’s first team, Coulson registered his first senior goal in March 2010, scoring in a 3-1 win at home to Salisbury.

The central defender then went from strength to strength at Cambridge, becoming a consistent figure in the back four and helping the Amber Army achieve promotion from the Conference at the end of the 2013-14 season.

With the U’s promoted, Coulson continued to feature regularly and marking his first appearance in the Football League with the winning goal in a 1-0 opening day victory at home to Plymouth Argyle.

With over 300 appearances to his name for the U’s, the central defender was rewarded for his service to the Club with a testimonial against Tottenham U23s this summer.

Coulson quickly became a fan favourite at the O’s, the chant about the size of his forehead often sung as the defender ran up to attack a corner and regularly, throughout the 2018/19 campaign at least, proceeded the defender heading home.

The defender made 47 appearances in the 2018/19 campaign, scoring eight goals. He was made First Team Captain in 2019/20.
