Club career

Born in Harlow, Essex, Simpson started his career at Cambridge City in 2004. In 2006, he transferred to Cambridge United on a one-year contract, although Simpson ended up back at City after just one season at The Abbey. He left Cambridge City in 2008 for the second time and signed for local neighbours Histon.

He joined Championship team Peterborough United on loan until 31 December 2009, with a view to a permanent move, on 5 November 2009. He made his debut on 21 November as an 87th minute substitute in a 1–0 defeat against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. He scored two goals for Peterborough in a 4–4 draw with Cardiff City, including the equalising goal on 90 minutes, after the team had been 4–0 down at half time. He signed for Peterborough permanently on a three-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee on 5 January 2010.

He revealed in May he was part of new manager Gary Johnson's plans for the forthcoming 2010–11 season, although Johnson stated in July that Simpson was not part of his plans. Following a successful pre season trial Simpson joined League Two team Southend United on an initial six-month loan on 5 August 2010.

He was recalled from his loan in late December and on 31 December joined Crawley Town for an undisclosed fee on a two and a half-year contract. He made his debut for the club the next day as an 83rd-minute substitute against Eastbourne Borough.

On 6 July 2015, Josh signed for Football League Two club Plymouth Argyle on a one-year contract.
