The versatile defender joined the club in September 2016 after leaving Hanley Town in the summer. Joel spent last season at Hanley Town before linking up with the Dabbers this season. He can play at either right back or at centre half, being equally comfortable at both positions.
He trained with the first team squad for a number of weeks before making his debut in the 1-1 draw away at Barwell. He put in an impressive first 45 minutes in his first appearance for the club, but an injury forced him off shortly after half time. Stair has since gone on to make a number of appearances, playing at multiple positions in defence. He made 28 appearances in total during the 16/17 season, scoring two goals.
Joel made a total of 48 appearances during the 2017/18 campaign in defence scoring seven goals. He was voted the Player of Year at the club’s awards night for his excellent season.
