67 Don McAllister

Position : Right back

Played : 1984-5

Appearances : 3

Goals : 0

Don was another attempt to solve the right back problem signing for us after returning to England from Portugese side Vitoria Setubal. He was 31 and had given good service (mainly at centre half or left back) to Bolton, Tottenham and Charlton (mainly at centre half or left back) before joining the exodus to the USA. However he only played 1 game for Tampa Bay Rowdies in 1984 before moving on to Portugal.

The record books say he made 3 appearances for us but I can only recall the last , a home game where he pulled up after about 10 minutes and had to be replaced. That was the end of his Dale career though he later appeared for Barnet (then a non-league side) before emigrating to Australia where he works as a finance manager.
