Dillon Barnes

Dillon Barnes against Bournemouth 

Dillon Barnes, who represented Yeovil Town twice during the 2021/22 season, has been told he is free to find a new club after the expiry of his contract at QPR at the end of this season.

Barnes played against Torquay and Bournemouth in two games before returning to QPR, he also spent a short spell with Aldershot.

He is one of six players to be released by the London side, a list which includes former Swindon striker Charlie Austin.

QPR CEO Lee Hoos said; “While Dillon never played in the first team, we thank him for his efforts.”

“We would like to wish (Dillon) all the very best for the future.”

The Gloverscast would also like to wish the ‘keeper well in his search for a new club.



Yeovil Town have announced the signing of Jamaican goalkeeper Dillon Barnes from Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

The 25-year-old signs as the club have depleted numbers in the goalkeeper position, due to Grant Smith’s two-match suspension. 

The announcement from Yeovil refers to it as “a short-term deal” whilst the keeper’s parent club confirms the loan runs until January 26.

Arriving with League experience, Barnes has made 25 appearances in the EFL in both League One and League Two for Burton Albion and Colchester United.

Last season, he spent a short spell in the Scottish Premiership with Hibernian, where made eight appearances in all competitions. 

Earlier this year, Barnes made his full international debut for Jamaica, starting in a narrow 1-0 defeat to Costa Rica in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

A quick check of the records shows that Barnes has come up against Yeovil twice in his career, both during the 2018/19 season whilst at Colchester.

A 3-1 Glovers win and a 1-1 draw at Huish Park, a game in which he was sent off, just before the hour mark.

After clashing with a Glovers player shortly after conceding… none of that kind of shenanigans please Dillon!

Everyone at the Gloverscast wishes Dillon well on his stay in Somerset.
