Ex-Cardiff man joins Valiants

Ex-Cardiff man joins Valiants

Former Cardiff City and Wales right-back Rhys Weston has moved to Port Vale in a bid to revive his flagging career.

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 left Cardiff City in September to take up a short term deal with Norwegian Club Viking Stavanger, he returned to this country and had a spell with Yeovil Town before securing a contract with Port Vale until the end of the season.
