Ethan Chislett joins the Valiants

3 July 2023

Port Vale Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of 24-year-old midfielder, Ethan Chislett.

The South African becomes our seventh summer signing and joins us from AFC Wimbledon where he made a total of 156 appearances across all competitions for the Plough Lane outfit. 

Chislett joined AFC Wimbledon following a standout season for Aldershot in the National League where he found the net nine times across 38 games before the season was curtailed due to Covid-19. 

This past season Ethan featured 52 times for AFC Wimbledon finding the back of the net on 11 occasions from midfield. 

Speaking of Chislett’s arrival, manager Andy Crosby said: 

“Ethan is an exciting addition to our club. Ethan’s flair, creativity and ability to also find the back of the net from midfield makes him an incredible asset.

“With Ethan having previous experience in League One, he’s already been exposed to the demands of this league, brings valuable experience and will be significant for us.”

“Additionally, his versatility and work rate off the ball make him an excellent fit for our playing style and team dynamics.”

“I look forward to working with Ethan and welcoming him to the squad at Vale Park.”

Director of Football, David Flitcroft said:  

“Ethan is an excellent addition to the club. He is a player that loves to find space in between midfield players and defenders. His timing of runs into the box to create goal-scoring opportunities is outstanding.

“He likes to attack players on the final third and always looks at creative opportunities to exploit the opposition.

“Just like our other signings so far, it was crucial for us to bring in players who not only possess the technical ability but also embody the values of our club.

“Ethan’s previous experience in League One will be instrumental in our midfield. We are confident that he will make a positive impact and contribute to our objectives for the season.

“We fought off other clubs Ethan’s signature, so the fact he ended up signing for us is a testament to the reputation and appeal of our club.”
