Joe joined the Bluebirds Academy at just 16-years-old in 2010. Within 15 months, he'd made his First Team debut, signed a first professional deal and scored a first professional goal on league debut - a stunner at Hull City.

Rallsy has been a key player for this football Club throughout his time here, leading by example on and off the pitch. Initially vice-captain for friend and colleague Sean Morrison, Joe was named permanent captain of the Club in 2022.

Speaking to Cardiff City TV after signing his new agreement, Rallsy said: “I feel amazing. I’m really proud to continue my journey here. I’ve loved every minute of it so far.

“I’m enjoying working with the manager and this group of players. We have the ability to have a really strong finish this season and to carry it on for years to come.

“It’s something I’m really excited about and I want to be a major part of that.”

City boss Erol Bulut added: “Rallsy grew up here. He’s earned this new deal with his performances this season. 

“But other than that, he’s a captain and our leader. His management of our team is so important. He pushes our squad whether on the pitch or not.

“These types of people have to stay. The board and myself knew he had to continue at our Club. We are delighted he’s agreed to stay.”

One of our own and a Club legend!
