Name: Byron Webster
Position: Central Defender
Date of Birth: 31 March 1987
Place of Birth: Leeds
Yeovil Town signed up Byron Webster in July 2012, shortly after the defender was released by his former club Northampton Town, by mutual consent. Joining the Glovers as a free agent, he became reunited with boss Gary Johnson, who had brought him to Sixfields from Doncaster Rovers, during his time with the Cobblers.
Standing at 6'3" Byron is an imposing figure, who spent part of his early career being played sometimes as a midfielder, but is now a regular central defender. He started his career with York City before having a varied career that took in Harrogate Town, Whitby Town and Czech club FK Baník Most.
In 2009 he returned to England and signed for Doncaster Rovers, during which time he had a brief loan spell with Hereford United. During this time he was a team-mate of Glovers striker James Hayter although struggled to hold down a place in the Championship side, making just three starts across just under two seasons, with eleven further appearances for Donny from the bench.
He moved to Northampton in March 2011, initially on a loan basis, before signing permanently for the Cobblers that summer. He started off as a first team regular for the Cobblers, but in September 2011, he broke a metatarsal and did not reappear again until January 2012, by which time Johnson had left the building and was on his way to Yeovil. Overall he made 16 appearances during the 2011-12 season for Northampton, to add to the eight he had made during his earlier Cobblers loan spell.
Byron signed a two year contract at Huish Park, and thus will be with the club until the summer of 2014.
