Former Watford and Gillingham and Sierra Leonean international Albert Jarrett have signed a three month contact with League Two outfit Barnett ahead of the new campaign.
The 24-year-old had been training with Ian Hendon’s side for the last month and has impressed enough to be given a short-term deal at Underhill.
Hendon said: “Albert has been with them since day one of training at the beginning of July and impressed in the games they played.”
The former Gillingham winger linked up with Ian Hendons squad earlier in the summer and has performed well. He has put pen-to-paper on a three-month deal and Hendon is excited about his arrival. “He added competition for places in the wide areas.”
Jarrett made his international debut for Sierra Leone on October 8, 2006 when Leone Stars lost 2-0 away to Benin in a 2008 African Nation Cup qualifier. Jarrett was born in Freetown, but was raised in South London England. Jarrett started his career as a schoolboy at Arsenal but, when not offered a professional contract in the summer of 2003, he joined Wimbledon.
He played 10 games for the Dons in the 2003–04 season, but was released at the end of the season and subsequently joined Football League Championship team Brighton & Hove Albion
In his two-year spell at Brighton, Jarrett was in and out of the team. He played 25 games in all for the Seagulls, scoring one goal, and had loan spells with Conference National team Stevenage Borough in March 2005 and League One team Swindon Town in January 2006.
On 18 September 2008, he joined Gillingham on a month contract and made his debut as a substitute in a home win over Port Vale on 27 September. He remained with Gillingham until the end of the 2008–09 seasons, when he was released at the end of his contract
