Chester FC have brought in experienced midfielder Sean McAllister to help combat their injury crisis.
The 31-year-old came through at Sheffield Wednesday and played a part in five Championship seasons for the club. After 73 appearances and four goals, he was released in 2010 after the Owls’ relegation to League One.
He went on to represent Shrewsbury Town, Port Vale, Cowdenbeath, Scunthorpe United, Grimsby Town and York City (on loan). He left Grimsby at the end of last season.
Speaking to ChesterFC.com, joint-manager Anthony Johnson said: “I think everyone is aware of our injury crisis at the moment and with George Green now serving a one-game ban as well, we needed to move quickly to bring a recognised central midfielder in.
“Sean has played at a very good level and at 31 is at an age where he still has lots to offer. He looked superb in training and so we’re delighted to be able to bring him in short term with a view to longer.”
