Speaking to the club website, he said: “It truly is a privilege to be part of this team, having played against Gainsborough once before, the atmosphere from the fans was electric. It was a no-brainer for me when the gaffer got in contact to play at a very good club, in a very good league.”

Wilcox added that the 20-year-old was “driven” and sees his move as a chance to continue developing.

The right-sided defender spent loan spells at Wisbech Town and Boston Town after seeing his gametime limited at step-four Grantham.

To the Trinity club website, manager Russ Wilcox said: “I am delighted that goalkeeper Josh Render has signed a contract with us for the upcoming season. He came to us to train, initially after playing a full season in Australia. He really impressed me with his hunger to succeed. His attitude and application was first class.”

“His chance to play came after Dylan Wharton got a blow to the head against Hyde United. His full debut came three days later at Matlock Town away. For me he was outstanding, keeping a clean sheet, making an important save at 1-0 and distributing the ball well,” he added.

Render made three appearances in all for the Holy Blues last term. Two came as substitute appearances, while he also kept a clean sheet in his full debut, against Matlock Town.
