Dean Keates, manager of Vanarama National League club Wrexham, has added winger or striker Iffy Allen to his squad for the final two months of the season.

The 22-year-old London-born player was most recently with league rivals Aldershot Town, leaving them in January having featured as a substitute against the Dragons last August.

Allen began his career at Fulham, where he spent a year with their youth team, before joining Barnet in the summer of 2011 and signing a two-year scholarship.

He made his debut as a substitute in an FA Cup First Round tie at home to Oxford United in November 2012. Then in January 2013, he signed a longer-term professional contract with the Bees.

There followed loan periods with both Kingstonian and Redhill in early 2014, before Allen scored his first goal for Barnet in a 3-3 draw at Lincoln City on the final day of the season.

He joined Wingate & Finchley on a three-month loan in October 2014 and then the following summer he was released from Barnet and signed for League Two side Yeovil Town, on a one-year deal after impressing during a trial period.

While with the Glovers he made a number of appearances coming off the bench, before switching to Torquay United in the January window for rest of the season.

He left Plainmoor last summer and signed for Aldershot following a successful trial, becoming a regular member of the Shots’ first-team squad, although he was released from the EBB Stadium by manager Gary Waddock in January.

Allen has been training with the Reds for a week and Keates invited him to join for the remaining two months of the campaign.

Keates said: “He’s done well in training with us and has something different to what we’ve got.

“He goes passed people and it’s an opportunity over the last 10 games for us to take a closer look”.
