Joshua Frederick 'Josh' Wagenaar (born February 26, 1985 in Grimsby, Ontario) is a Canadian footballer who plays for Falkirk as a goalkeeper.


Club career

Josh attended Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York state. He only played 12 games for them in his final season because of a foot injury.[1]


Holland and Denmark

Wagenaar's first two seasons in Europe were not particularly successful, since he got relegated from the Dutch Eredivisie with ADO Den Haag and then from the Danish Superliga with Lyngby BK. He only appeared in a few games for both teams, however.

Yeovil Town

In July 2008 he joined English League One side Leeds United on a trial, but was not offered a contract. On 6 August 2008, after a successful trial, he officially signed for English League One side Yeovil Town to answer the club's urgent need for a keeper[2].

For the first 3 months of the season he was number 2 behind fellow Canadian Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, but since his loan ended he has played every game including getting in the League One Team of the Week against Southend. He passed a medical for Falkirk and pending international clearance will sign a 1 year deal.[3]

International career

In the summer of 2005, Wagenaar played for the U-20 Canadian national team at the World Youth Cup in the Netherlands.[4].

He made his senior international debut in a friendly against Hungary on November 15, 2006.[5] He played his second game against Guatemala, playing 45 minutes he kept a clean sheet on the June 30, 2009.[6] Played his third game for Canada in a 3-0 loss to Macedonia on November,14,2009, playing the full 90 minutes.[7]
