Weston attended Erith Secondary School and was spotted by a Millwall scout when playing for the school team. Weston was signed to Millwall's Youth Academy, after which he was not allowed to play for his school team again. In only Weston's second appearance for Millwall's first team he became the youngest FA Cup Final player in history at the age of seventeen years one hundred and nineteen days, coming on as a substitute against Manchester United and beating the one hundred and twenty-five-year old record of James F. M. Prinsep. He was brought on to replace the then, Player-Manager Dennis Wise with two minutes of the match remaining. Weston moved to Swindon in July 2006, re-uniting him with Wise, having started twice in the League, appeared as a substitute twice in the League and Twice in the FA Cup while at the Den. He was released by Swindon a year later, having scored once and started twenty-one League games with another six appearances from the bench. He also scored once in three starts and one game as a substitute in the Cups and other competitions. He signed a two year contract with Leeds United on 7th August 2007 and was reunited with Dennis Wise once more. He scored his first goal for the club in their 3-0 win over Northampton Town in January 2008. Weston joined CCCL side Scunthorpe United on loan, in March 2008 and played seven times, of which five were as substitute before returning to Leeds. In August 2008, Weston joined Gillingham, initially on a one month loan, but he cancelled his Leeds contract and signed a two year contract with the Gills on 27th August 2008. He made his Gillingham debut in the 1–1 draw away to AFC Bournemouth on 9th August 2008 and scored his first goal for the club on 28th December 2008 against Wycombe Wanderers. Prior to the 2009/10 season Weston signed an extension to his contract that tied him to the Gills until 2011/12. He had scored eleven goals in eighty-four League appearances, of which five were as a substitute, he had also scored twice in seven F.A. Cup ties, played twice without scoring in the League Cup, and started once and played one Johnstone's Paint Trophy game from the bench and started three League Two play-off Finals games without scoring by the end of the 2009-10 season.
