Theo Wharton joins Barry Town United

Barry Town United are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Theo Wharton.

Wharton, most recently of Hereford, was born in Cwmbran and came through the Cardiff City academy to make two appearances for the first team in the FA Cup against West Bromwich Albion and Macclesfield. He was also capped by Wales at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level in his time as a Bluebird.

Following a loan spell at Weston-super-Mare, Wharton left the Welsh capital in 2017 to join York City before spending time on loan at Tamworth. He has also played for Nuneaton Borough and Hereford in the last two years.

The 25-year-old has made 15 appearances for the Saint Kitts and Nevis national team, debuting against Haiti in November 2016. He has two goals for the Caribbean nation to date, both coming in a 10-0 win over Saint Martin in CONCACAF Nations League qualifying in October 2018.

Manager Gavin Chesterfield said:

“Theo is a player I’ve known for a long time both through his dad Sean and during his time at Cardiff. It’s no secret that we’ve missed elements of control in midfield particularly due to losing Troy and Robbie through injury in August.

“Theo is an exciting player who has a good pedigree and I feel we will be a really good fit for each other. He’s been training with the squad for the last month and has integrated very well.”
