Relegated Yeovil Town have made their 15th summer signing by bringing in winger Iffy Allen on a one-year deal.

Allen, who came to Huish Park on trial, was on the books at Barnet from 2011 until his release this summer.

The 21-year-old Londoner started with Fulham before joining Barnet, since when he has had loans further down the non-league pyramid at Kingstonian, Redhill and Wingate & Finchley.

"His potential is huge," said boss Paul Sturrock. "He's an exciting winger."

Yeovil's new arrivals for the 2015-16 season
Defenders - Omar Sowunmi, Ben Tozer, Ryan Dickson, Stephen Arthurworrey, Alex Lacey
Midfielders - Matt Dolan, Jack Compton, Marc Laird, Jordan Gibbons, Wes Fogden, Iffy Allen
Strikers - Jamie Burrows, Ryan Bird, Mark Beck, Shaun Jeffers

The Yeovil manager added: "There is no substitute for pace and guile. Iffy knows where the goal is and likes to get crosses into the box.

"He is not the finished article by a long shot, but we have have taken a chance on him and it is up to him to force himself into the team."

Allen did not figure in Barnet's Conference title-winning season in 2014-15.

Yeovil, relegated in successive seasons, start the new campaign back in League Two at Exeter on 8 August.
