Gareth Ainsworth’s latest signing brings more attacking prowess to his squad with the capture of 28-year-old winger Myles Weston.The Antigua international arrives at Adams Park with a wealth of experience and has regularly been a thorn in the side of the Chairboys throughout his career, scoring in a 1-1 draw for Brentford in 2010, excelling for Gillingham in 2012 and supplying the cross that broke Wycombe hearts in the 2015 play-off final for Southend United.
Weston left Southend at the end of his contract in May and put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Wanderers in time to link up with his new team-mates for the start of pre-season training.
Ainsworth said: “Myles is just the type of player we wanted to bring pace, creativity and a goal threat, and I’m really happy to have him with us.
“I know he’s an exciting player to watch and his career so far shows he’s capable of playing at a higher level, so bringing him here is a real coup for the club.
“I’ve seen Myles play both on the wing and up front and he’s as big a threat in either position.”
The former Charlton youngster gained his first Football League experience during a two-year spell with Notts County after an initial loan spell, before switching to Brentford in 2009. He scored 12 times in 108 appearances for the Bees and then played a key role with eight goals in Gillingham’s promotion to League 1 in 2013 following his move to Kent.
Weston – a former England youth international – switched to Southend in 2014 and delivered the fatal cross from which Joe Pigott scored in stoppage time in extra-time at Wembley to deny the Chairboys promotion to League 1, and played 20 times in the third tier for the Shrimpers last season before departing in the summer.
