Former Ipswich Town defender Josh Yorwerth has joined Barry Town United for the 2024/25 Cymru Premier Season.

The 29-year-old joins Steve Jenkins' side who finished ninth in the Welsh top-flight last campaign, after spells with Penybont and Merthyr Town. 



Yorwerth returned to football back in 2022 following his four-year ban for avoiding a drugs test, which at the time was thought to be the longest in English professional football history for a doping offence.

He subsequently admitted taking cocaine and has spoken of a gambling problem, having been sacked by Peterborough as a result of his ban in 2019.

The Welshman was with the Blues for the 2015/16 season, having signed for the club from Cardiff City following a trial. 

Overall, he made three appearances for Town, including scoring on his debut against Stevenage under Mick McCarthy, before leaving the club to join Crawley Town in the summer of 2016. 

He also started at Old Trafford as the Blues were beaten 3-0 by Manchester United in the Carabao Cup Third Round in September 2015.
