I'm excited about the years ahead - McAllister

Jamie McAllister has expressed his delight at putting pen to paper on a new coaching contract at Ashton Gate.

The 39-year-old took on the role of Under-23 coach last summer after hanging up his playing boots.

The former left-back then stepped up to assist head coach Lee Johnson and assistant Dean Holden after the departure of John Pemberton in March.

City suffered just three defeats in the 11 games that followed as they secured Sky Bet Championship status with one match to spare.

"I relished the opportunity to step up and work alongside the gaffer, Dean, the rest of the staff and players, helping to secure our Championship status."

Now the Scotsman has agreed a new deal to permanently form part of the first team coaching setup.

McAllister said: “It was a tough decision for me to finish playing last year but it has proved the right decision.

“I’ve loved working with the Under-23s and have seen them flourish over the course of the season, finishing fifth in the league, winning the Central League Cup and reaching the Gloucestershire Senior Challenge Cup final.

“I relished the opportunity to step up to work alongside the gaffer, Dean, the rest of the staff and players, helping to secure our Championship status.

“The players were excellent over the last ten games and showed how good they can be. We can compete with anyone in the league, demonstrated by our victories over promoted pair Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion.

“I’m delighted to have signed my new contract to continue working with the first team and I’m very excited about the years ahead.”
