Cheltenham Town have signed teenage goalkeeper Daniel Lloyd-Weston on a one-year contract from League Two rivals Port Vale.
Lloyd-Weston, who trained with Manchester United last year, was not offered a new deal by Vale after failing to make a first-team appearance for the Club.
Having impressed at LFE’s Assessment Trials in May, the young keeper has now secured a move to Whaddon Road and will be looking to push himself in to contention for the No. 1 Jersey with current custodian Scott Brown.
Speaking to the Club’s official website, Lloyd-Weston said:
“Coming here is a new experience and a chance for me to develop as a young goalkeeper, it’s just a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to getting back into training.”
“I’ve had experience with West Brom and Port Vale, but I’m confident in my own ability and that’s something I will show to the Manager.”
“There will be a good but healthy competition between myself and Scott (Brown) and that’s something I’m looking forward too.”
“I’m at a young age so this is a great opportunity for me to prove myself and to force my way into the first team.”
