Weston began his career at Millwall.

He won the League Two play-offs with Gillingham in the 2008/09 season and lifted the National League trophy with Barnet, under Allen’s management in the 2014/15 campaign.

Last season at the Hive Allen removed the captain’s armband from Weston, saying: “Curtis Weston does a good job but he scores goals, which we need, when he is not captain.”

Allen did not disclose the length of the 31-year-old’s contract in this afternoon’s press release.
