Joshua Green (born 24 August 1992) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the Brisbane Lions and the Essendon Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early career

Born in Tasmania, Green developed his skills while playing under age football for Sorell. He would later join Clarence. He became a dual premiership player with the club, playing in the 2009 and 2010 premiership teams. In 2010 he won the Davidson Medal as the state's best Under-18 player at the AFL Tasmania State Academy. He was named in the 2010 All-Australian Under 18 team.

AFL career

Brisbane Lions drafted him with pick 32 in the 2010 AFL draft. He was the first Tasmanian to be picked that year.

After playing five games in the reserves for the Brisbane Lions, he was selected to play in Round 9 of the 2011 AFL season against North Melbourne at the Gabba.[1] He picked up 12 touches in his first game, which was a win for Brisbane against North Melbourne.[2] Green was influential in Brisbane's narrow upset win over ladder leaders West Coast Eagles in Round 10 of the 2012 AFL season, having come on in the last quarter as the substitute and kicking three goals and getting a scoring assist.[3] After the 2014 AFL season Josh Green finished as Brisbane's highest goal scorer with 33 goals.

In October 2016, he was delisted by Brisbane,[4] and he subsequently signed with the Essendon Football Club in November as a delisted free agent.[5]

In September 2018, Green was delisted by Essendon. [6]
