Sean McAllister joined Scunthorpe in 2013-2014, after he had a successful trial at the club.

The midfielder joined the Iron on a free transfer after nine league games for Scottish side Cowdenbeath the year before.

The midfielder began his career at Manchester United, where he was involved in their youth set-up, before moving to Bolton to pen his first professional contract.

McAllister left Bolton in 2006, in order to join Sheffield Wednesday, where he made 65 appearances, scoring four goals.

After spells at Shrewsbury, Port Vale and Cowdenbeath, McAllister joined Scunthorpe in the summer of 2013.

In his first season he made 43 appearances for the club and played a massive part in helping the club achieve automatic promotion in second place.

His work didn’t go unnoticed, as he won the club’s Player of the Year award for ‘high energy and consistent performances.’

Last season, McAllister made 31 appearances for the club, scoring one goal, and he will be hoping to challenge for a starting slot in 2015/16.
