Barnet midfielder Curtis Weston has signed a new one-year deal with the Conference Premier club.

The 27-year-old, who joined the Bees from Gillingham in 2012, scored four goals in 40 appearances last season.

Former Millwall, Swindon and Leeds man Weston spent four years with the Gills and played under current Barnet head coach Martin Allen at Priestfield.

"It is good news about Curtis. He is a key player and a good player," Allen told the club website.external-link

He added: "Now I need to find a man to play next to him and soon that will happen."

Meanwhile, Allen is still looking to add to his attacking options following the capture of John Akinde last month.

The 27-year-old ex-Bristol City and Crawley Town striker has agreed a two-year deal at The Hive following his departure from Alfreton Town.

"We are also close to signing another centre-forward to partner John," Allen said. "Things are coming together nicely."
