Jason Mark Rees (born 22 December 1969) is a Welsh former professional footballer and Wales international.

Club career[edit]

Rees began his career with Luton Town before moving to Portsmouth in 1994 on a free transfer,[1] having spent the majority of the 1993–94 season on loan at Mansfield Town.[2] He struggled to hold down a first team place at Fratton Park and was allowed to join Exeter City on loan during the 1996–97 season but a permanent move never materialised and he returned to Portsmouth until his release at the end of the season. After a spell with Cambridge United, he returned to Exeter City on a permanent deal in 1998.

Following his release by Exeter, Rees spent time on trial with Cheltenham Town,[3] eventually joining Tiverton Town.[4] He returned to The Football League several months later in December 2000 with Torquay United,[5] where he spent two seasons before rejoining Tiverton in 2002. One year later, he returned to Plainmoor, captaining Tiverton Town as they won Devon Bowl for a record eighth time against his former club Torquay United.[6]

International career[edit]

Having previously represented Wales at under-21 and B levels,[7] Rees made his senior debut on 29 April 1992, coming on to replace Jeremy Goss during a 1–1 draw with Austria.[8]

Managerial career[edit]

Rees now manages South West Peninsula League side Exeter Civil Service, following a brief stint with Ottery St Mary[9]
