Joe, a 6’3” goalkeeper, was born in Shrewsbury and began his professional career with local League club Shrewsbury Town, then in League Two.He appeared in all 46 matches in the 2005-06 season, Town finishing tenth, and impressed Premier League Manchester City enough for them to sign him for the following season.
Joe made his debut for England’s Under-21s as a substitute for Scott Carson in a 2-2 friendly draw against Spain in February 2007, going on to collect 21 caps at that level and start three matches in the Euro 2009 tournament in Sweden.
Fabio Capello handed him his first senior cap as a substitute for David James in Trinidad & Tobago in June 2008 and since then he has gone from strength to strength, establishing himself as number one for both Manchester City and England.
