The young shot-stopper joins the Steelmen on a season-long loan.

Redcar Athletic are thrilled to confirm the loan signing of young Hartlepool United shot-stopper, Josh Mazfari.

The 19-year-old links up with Carl Jarrett’s squad on a season-long deal, becoming the sixth acquisition of a busy summer.

A highly-regarded number one with masses of potential, Josh makes the move from Hartlepool United to the Redcar seafront on a semi-permanent basis, set to stay with the Steelmen throughout the 2024/25 campaign.

First signing professional terms with Championship side Huddersfield Town, the 19-year-old excelled at various levels of the Terriers’ academy, impressing too on a pair of loan deals to Liversedge and Tadcaster Albion.

Making the permanent switch to Hartlepool just last season, Josh garnered further experienced in a loan move to title-unfortunates, Shildon, quickly establishing himself as a fan-favourite, and making a significant contribution to their promotion charge.

Pleased to capture the services of the young shot-stopper, Carl Jarrett was quick to praise his raw talent and ability, noting the importance he could bear throughout the course of the season.

“I’m delighted to get Josh into the club.” He said.

“He’s a fantastic young talent, and I’m sure he will be very important to us as a team this season.”

Welcome to Green Lane, Josh.
