Craig McAllister is focused on what he wants to achieve as player-coach at Gosport Borough this season.
He wants to keep Borough in the Southern League premier division and is convinced he can do it. McAllister has been brought in by new chairman Iain McInnes to help manager Alex Pike lead a recovery at the club. He accepts it is a massive challenge but it is one he is very much up for.
His first priority is to bring in some more experienced players to the club. Borough are hoping to add two or three faces ahead of the trip to Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday. The hosts haven’t been in good form and it’s a chance to get a positive result and start building some crucial momentum. McAllister feels this game represents an opportunity to start turning Borough’s fortunes around.
He knows they can’t afford to keep losing matches or they will run out of time in their efforts to stay up.
“All that matters is staying up,” he said. “We are hoping to have some new players in the building.”
“Straight away we must be looking at winning games and start the run that we need to go on.”
