Joseph Johnson




Date of birth



Born in Barnet, left-sided defender Johnson began his career at Arsenal academy when he was six years old. After being released by the Gunners four years later, he joined grass-roots club Focus Football before joining the Hatters in 2020.

Having scored in the win against Birmingham City at St Andrew’s in the FA Youth Cup Third Round in December 2022, the first-year scholar was named on the bench for the first-team in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round replay at Grimsby Town in February 2023.

After signing his first professional contract in March 2023, Johnson made his senior debut as a substitute in the Championship win over Middlesbrough the following month, aged 17 years and 62 days.

His first start came in the Carabao Cup at Exeter City on 26th September, and was swiftly followed by a call-up to the England Under-18 squad in early October, making his debut playing 64 minutes of a 1-1 draw with Belgium in a friendly ahead of the U18 World Cup in Indonesia.
