Wealdstone have completed the signing of defender Ian Gayle and the capture of young midfielder Iffy Allen to bolster their squad.

The Stones picked up a few injuries in their 1-0 victory against Hereford in the second round of the FA Trophy and have since moved to bring in some depth.

Gayle joins the club from National League South rivals Welling United, where he has made 16 league appearances this campaign, as well as an appearance in the FA Cup and another in the FA Trophy.

The 25-year-old centre-back will bring a wealth of experience with him having played for Dagenham & Redbridge in the Football League.

While, on the books at Daggers he had a handful of loan spells to clubs including Grays Athletic, Kingstonian, Histon, Whitehawk, Bishop Stortford and St Albans City during his six year spell.

He then left Dagenham in the summer of 2016 to join Braintree Town where he made 22 appearances last season before joining the Wings in the summer.

The club also moved to capture youngster Iffy Allen, who joins on a 28-day loan spell from National League outfit Bromley.

The speedy 23-year-old winger joined Bromley in May 2017 having played at Wrexham.

He has also spent time at Yeovil Town, Torquay United and Aldershot Town.
