Jordan Barnett has become the latest defensive addition to Yeovil Town’s squad after the left-back joined on a permanent contract.

The 21-year-old, who scored a sensational goal for Notts County against the Glovers’ back in March, was one of six players released from our National League rivals at the end of last season.

He has also operated further forward and in a central midfield role for Notts County and Oldham Athletic and fills a void left by the departures of Carl Dickinson and Michael Kelly, who both played on the left side of defence last season.

Jordan’s early career saw him flit between professional and non-League having started in the academies at both Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley before he was released at 15.

He dropped down to Northern Counties East League side Penistone Church where he impressed enough to be picked up by Premier League Burnley and then Barnsley but after two years in the professional game he was back in non-League this time with Pontefract Colleries.

He spent a couple of months there before Oldham Athletic gave him his first taste of League action signing for them in September 2002.

He ended up making 24 appearances in all competitions for the League Two side up until mid-January this year when his contract expired and he was picked up by Notts County to support their promotion push.

Jordan turned out 13 times for Notts including as a substitute in the National League play-off semi-final defeat to Torquay United earlier this month.

Welcome to Huish Park, Jordan!
