Evo-Stik League South Premier club Gosport Borough, facing back-to-back relegations, have suffered another blow with the departure of vastly experienced striker Craig McAllister.
The player-coach has left Privett Park and has subsequently joined Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier title-chasers Blackfield & Langley.
Thirty-seven-year-old McAllister has enjoyed a long and successful career which seen him play both professionally and in the upper echelons of non-League football.
Among his many clubs are Exeter City, Barnet, Luton Town, Woking, Rushden & Diamonds, Crawley Town and Newport County. His career has spanned almost two decades and has seen many highlights.
When with Crawley, he was part of the team that played Manchester United at Old Trafford in 2011 with Steve Evans’ side eventually losing 1-0.
More recently he has been with home-town club Eastleigh following a two-year spell at Sutton United before signing for Gosport in January.
McAllister scored twice on his debut for his new club in their 3-0 win against AFC Portchester at the weekend.
