York City have made former centre-back Tom Allan their latest signing of the summer.

The 23-year-old therefore rejoins his hometown club having recently completed over a century of appearances for Alfreton Town while claiming a dozen goals.

Those included him actually scoring against the Minstermen during a 1-1 draw between the clubs at Bootham Crescent in February.

Allan, who is 6’4″, also had a spell at Gateshead, netting twice in 22 appearances, since originally leaving York in May 2014.

During that first stay, he totalled eleven senior games while also gaining himself loan experience at both Hucknall Town and Harrogate Town.

That makes it a total of five new signings completed by manager Martin Gray since the end of last season

Former skipper Russell Penn was the first to arrive, closely followed by fellow ex-Gateshead duo Jordan Burrow and Wes York, before experienced right-back Kallum Griffiths was similarly recruited from Spennymoor Town earlier this week.

York’s squad now stands at nineteen players overall, including a quartet of youngsters inĀ goalkeeper Ryan Whitley, centre-back Josh Rogerson, midfielder Harry Thompson and winger Vinnie Steels.
