Jason Jeffrey Price (born 12 April 1977 in Pontypridd) is a Welsh footballer. He can play as a right sided midfielder or as a forward. He now plays for 2015-16 Division Four champions Almondbury Woolpack, in the Huddersfield and District League.

Career[edit]

Price had spells with Swansea City, Brentford (for whom he scored once against Reading),[2] Tranmere Rovers and Hull City.

Doncaster Rovers[edit]

He signed for Doncaster Rovers under former Rovers manager David Penney, and soon established himself as a key player under Sean O'Driscoll.

On the return to his home country for the Football League Trophy Final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on 1 April 2007, Price suffered a snapped Achilles tendon ruling him out for nine months. He renewed his contract at Doncaster in June 2008 when his previous deal was due to expire. Despite much talk of him leaving Rovers, Price took up a new one-year deal.

One of Price's most important goals was against Aston Villa in the 2008–09 FA Cup fourth round replay at Villa Park, when he poked in a cross from James Coppinger just before half-time.

He joined Millwall on loan on 26 March 2009 for the remainder of the season,[3] and two days later he scored on his Millwall debut – a 90th-minute winner which earned the Lions a crucial 1–0 victory at Crewe Alexandra.

Price returned to Doncaster at the end of the season but was released from his contract on 7 May.[4]

Millwall[edit]

On 7 July 2009 Price signed for Millwall on a one-year deal.[5] He joined Oldham Athletic on a one-month loan deal on 1 February 2010,[6] making seven appearances and scoring once against Swindon Town[7] before returning to Millwall.[8] Two days after his return, Price left the club on loan for a second time, joining Carlisle United until the end of the 2009–10 season.[9] Price managed to score his first goal for the Cumbrians on his debut as Carlisle won the match 2–1 against Colchester.

Carlisle United[edit]

On 17 June 2010 Price signed a 1-year deal with Carlisle United. On 13 October 2010 he signed a one-month loan deal with Bradford City. His loan was extended to the start of January 2011, with Price scoring his first goal in his eighth game with the club, in a 1–1 draw with Accrington Stanley.[10] On 28 January 2011 Price signed a one-month loan deal with Walsall who, at the time, were bottom of Football League One. Price made his debut at home the following day in a 6–1 victory over Bristol Rovers, the club's best league result since 1986 (which was a 6–0 victory, also over Bristol Rovers). On 24 March 2011 Price signed a loan deal with Hereford United until the end of the season.

He was released by Carlisle United in May 2011 before signing an initial one-month deal with Barnet in League 2 in August 2011.[11]
