Defender leaves Stones to join Championship promotion hopefuls Cardiff City

Wealdstone have confirmed defender Ciaron Brown has joined Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City.

Negotiations with the promotion-chasing Bluebirds have been ongoing for some time and a deal has now been agreed to take Brown, to the Cardiff City Stadium.

The 20-year-old joined up Wealdstone in the summer of 2016 from Bedfont Sports and has since developed rapidly into a strong, versatile defender capable of playing in the middle or at left back.

A large number of Football League clubs had been tracking Brown’s progress over the past year, including a trial with Cardiff’s divisional rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Brown made a total of 66 appearances for Wealdstone, scoring three goals.

“I’d like to wish Ciaron a very successful career; it’s a great achievement to become a pro, he’s worked very hard and we will always support him and we will follow his progress with great interest,” said Wealdstone boss Bobby Wilkinson

Stones chairman Peter Marsden added: “I know that Ciaron has worked extremely hard to fulfil his ambition to be a full time pro footballer and I know all Wealdstone fans will wish him well at Cardiff.

“We look forward to welcoming Ciaron and his new team mates for a pre-season friendly at Grosvenor Vale at the start of next season.”
