Read Martin Allen's exclusive views on Gillingham's new arrivals

Good afternoon. Yesterday evening we agreed with Bournemouth for the signing of Adam Barrett on a one year contract with an option for a second year. Adam has had a tremendous career and has experienced three promotions as a player and captain. He trained with us this morning and will go into our squad for tomorrow’s game.

We agreed yesterday afternoon with Brentford that Myles Weston can join us on a two year contract. I have watched Myles many times and he adds another dimension with speed and ability to play in wide areas. Myles will also go into our squad for tomorrow’s game.

We have been after both of these players for several weeks now. They both have good experience of getting promotion from this division and with these two we get leadership, goals, experience, speed and excitement.

Regards Martin

Oh, and by the way we have received international clearance so Deon Burton also goes into our squad.
