The National League club announced today that Martin Allen had joined the National League side after being granted permission to leave Barnet.

Allen was released from his deal with the Bees after Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald had asked for permission to speak to the 51-year-old.

Eastleigh were rocked when the experienced Ronnie Moore quit due to ‘personal circumstances’ yesterday, after successive defeats.
