Yeovil Town have signed Lowestoft defender Curtis Haynes-Brown on a two-year deal following a successful trial.

The Suffolk side will be due a fee as the 22-year-old had a year remaining on his contract.

The former Colchester youngster, who helped Lowestoft to the Ryman Premier Division play-off final in May, had a trial with Crewe earlier in the summer.

But Alex manager Dario Gradi decided not to follow up his interest in the former Sudbury left-back.

Haynes-Brown featured in the Glovers' 3-1 friendly win over Poole last week, but Lowestoft joint-boss Ady Gallagher criticised the Huish Park outfit for their initial approach.

He said at the time: "We're a little bit disappointed that things weren't done in a more professional way."
