Rhys Browne signs one-year contract extension

6 July 2020

Port Vale Football Club are delighted to announce that winger Rhys Browne has signed a one-year contract extension at the club.

The Norwich City academy graduate made his first senior move to Charlton Athletic in 2014, spending time on loan at VCD Athletic during his spell with The Addicks.

After leaving Charlton, Browne signed for National League side Aldershot Town in July 2015.

A move to the EFL followed with a transfer to Grimsby Town in June 2016, which included a loan spell at Macclesfield in in January 2017.

In June 2017 Browne signed for Yeovil Town, spending two seasons at Huish Park before his move to Port Vale in July 2019.

The 24-year-old has made 150 senior appearances throughout his career, 15 of which have come during his time at Vale, and he has scored 16 goals across his footballing career.

“Rhys started pre-season really well, before getting a knock and then he struggled to get in the team,” said Vale manager John Askey.

“We know he’s got a lot of ability and now he just needs to try and nail down a place in the team in the coming season.”

“I see him predominantly out on the wing, though he has played in other positions, but the advantage is that he can play either side of the wing.”

Browne’s contract extension ties him down to Port Vale until June 2021.
