Merthyr Town Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Yate Town midfielder Joshua Allen, subject to international clearance. 

The 27-year-old, who arrives at The MetCoaches Stadium, becomes Dean Clarke’s first signing of the January transfer window. 

Allen, also a full Wales futsal international, has featured for a number of Welsh League clubs including Taffs Well, Pontypridd Town and Cardiff Met. 

Allen has made 15 appearances for Yate Town this season, one of which saw him part of the squad during the club's Emirates FA Cup 1st Round tie against Yeovil Town back in November. 

Should his international clearance go through in time this week, his first eligible game will be next Saturday’s trip to Hartley & Wintney in the Southern League Premier South. 

Merthyr Town manager Dean Clarke said: “I'm delighted to get Josh's transfer over the line.

“He'll give us energy, presence and he’s got the added bonus of being left-footed so that will give us some good balance. 

"He’s just come back from covid so we will have to assess his conditioning, but I'm looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the side going forward. "
