Vale complete signing of winger Rhys Browne

27 July 2019

Port Vale are pleased to announce the signing of winger Rhys Browne on a one year deal after a trial period with the club.

The former Yeovil player has impressed manager John Askey after training with the squad since they returned for pre-season, and has featured in some of the recent friendlies.

Browne has spent the past two seasons on the south coast at Yeovil Town where he made over 30 appearances for the club. 

In his younger days, the fast paced winger was part of the Norwich City Under-18s side that won the 2012/13 FA Youth Cup before moving on to Charlton Athletic a year later.

His form in London earned him a cap for Antigua and Barbuda in 2015 against St Lucia in a World Cup first leg qualifier before earning his second cap in a second leg win.

Rhys missed out on the trip to Scotland with the Vale to focus on recovering on a slight hamstring injury he picked up in a friendly.

Manager John Askey made it no secret he was hoping to recruit one or two more players to his squad before the start of the season and is happy to have been able to add Rhys to the ranks.

"Rhys has done well in the games that he's played. It's a shame he's picked up a bit of a hamstring injury but I'm sure he'll be back fit soon.

"He gives us another option, he can go past people, he's quick, strong and he's got a goal in him. We've got good options now up front and out wide.

"Rhys can play down the middle, out wide and either side likewise with David Amoo and Monty. David Worrall can also rotate as well so we've got plenty of options.
