David McAllister is the tenacious midfielder drafted in by manager Graham Westley on loan in October 2014 for an initial one-month term; one that was later extended to take him into the New Year. After joining up with the Boro’ ranks from Shrewsbury Town, he slotted into the midfield almost immediately; becoming one of the first names on the team sheets as his loan spell went on.
Shortly after his return to the Shrews, he left on a free transfer and returned to Boro’ in a permanent move in mid-January 2015. But McAllister found himself more familiar with the physio room than the Lamex pitch. Despite his best efforts to get back into the fold, it just didn’t happen; spending much of the 2015-6 campaign absent on the sidelines. In summer 2016, he left the club with fans perhaps feeling that injury luck conspired against him.
David McAllister: Before Boro’
Before moving to the New Meadow, McAllister started his career across the Irish Sea – most recently with St Patrick’s Athletic. That was until English football and, more specifically, Sheffield United came calling.
