Lincoln City have moved to sign winger Albert Jarrett after he was released from League Two rivals Barnet.
The 25-year-old Sierra Leone international has put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the Imps.

Speaking on the official Lincoln City website, Imps manager Chris Sutton said: “I’m delighted that a player of Albert’s ability has agreed to sign for us. He is a player who the fans will pay money to come and watch and if he can fulfill his potential he will almost certainly improve us as a team and help move us forward.”

Jarrett represented Arsenal at schoolboy level, but failed to make the grade at the club and left to join Wimbledon in 2003. He spent just one season at the Dons, making just 9 appearances before heading to the south coast to ply his trade with Brighton.

After two years at the Seagulls, he was released and joined Watford on a free transfer. But Jarrett made just one appearance there and was instead shipped out on loan to both Boston United and Milton Keynes Dons.

Gillingham was the next stop for Jarrett who offered him a month-to-month contract. He made 16 league appearances at the club before he was released at the end of the 2008-09 season. Jarrett had arguably his most successful season ever last year as he played in all but one of Barnet’s League Two matches, helping them to avoid relegation.

He becomes the sixth new recruit to sign on at Sincil Bank for the new season and will now join the rest of the players in pre-season training which began this week.
