Arbroath FC are delighted to announce the loan signing of forward Joel “Jon” Nouble.
Joel is 25-years-old and today has signed a contract with Livingston FC then has subsequently joined Arbroath on loan and goes straight into the squad for Wednesday’s match against East Fife.
The 6’-4” striker can play either up front or on the wing and will bring a new element to the Arbroath attack.
Joel who joined his new team mates for training on Monday night started his youth career on the books of Chelsea and Millwall before being offered a scholarship with Dagenham and Redbridge in November 2011 then joining their Academy 7 months later.
Whilst at Dagenham and Redbridge Joel spent time on loan at several clubs gaining valuable experience before he earned his first professional contract with the club in 2014, whilst also being voted Academy Player of the Year in 2013-2014.
Joel has also placed for Thurrock, Haringey Borough, Concord Rangers before signing for National League Side Aldershot Town in 2020.
Upon signing for Aldershot, Joel described himself as “I’m an attacking player, very good with the ball at my feet, skilful. I like to create, score goals and make sure the fans enjoy it when they’re watching me play.” https://www.theshots.co.uk/new-signing-shots-sign-nouble/
It was his performances for Aldershot Town that has put Joel on the radar of several other National League Teams as well as Bolton Wanderers, although it is Livingston who have won the race for his signature.
Football is in Joel’s family with older brother Frank Nouble having played for West Ham United, Ipswich Town and currently playing for English League One side Colchester United.
The relationship between Arbroath FC and Livingston has grown from strength to strength and we are very excited to welcome Joel to our club and hope that we can give him the platform to grow and adapt to the Scottish game before returning to Livingston.
Thank you again to David Martindale and everyone at Livingston.
Welcome to the club Joel!
