'If It's Football, It's Vital'

ex-City defender joins Yeovil

Ex-Cardiff City defender Rhys Weston has begun a 1 week trial with League 1 side Yeovil Town.

'Rhys is training with us this week and we are trying to arrange a practice match for him' said Town boss Russell Slade.

Weston, 26, left Cardiff at the start of this season and headed off to Viking Stavanger in Norway for a short spell. After completing the Norwegian season, Weston came back to Britain and there was talk of a short term contract at Cardiff City when injuries / suspension to Kerrea Gilbert and a lack of loan options foced City into a fullback crisis.

Weston made 170 league appearances for Cardiff City helping them to two promotions along the way. He was one of the first signings of the Sam Hammam era costing 300k from Arsenal. He played most of his first season as a centre-back but was switched to right-back with the emergence of Danny Gabbidon and looked more comfortable as a full back. Weston has made many mistakes through slack marking and poor positional play but used his pace well to cover and was an excellent servant to Cardiff City.

Numerous times he lost his place (to Steve Jenkins, Jermaine Darlington etc) but showed an exemplary attitude and determination to win back his place. Weston was targetted by some sections of the Cardiff support and many players would have hid or lacked determination (a la Andy Campbell) but Rhys was a very good signing for this club and is doubtless a good player all the same.

It is suprising that he has not found a club yet but we wish Rhys all the best for the future.
