SCOTT ALLARDICE JOINS FROM DUNDEE UNITED

Bohemians are delighted to announce the signing of Scott Allardice from Dundee United.

The midfielder joins after a successful trial period with the club earlier this month.

Allardice, 20, comes to Dalymount after spending nine years at Tannadice. During that time, he broke into the Arabs’ first team and enjoyed loan spells at both East Fife and Dumbarton.

Welcoming Allardice to the club, manager Keith Long said: “Scott is someone we’ve been aware of and monitoring for a number of months.

“We brought him over earlier in the month to have a closer look at him and he’s impressed us in training.

“He’s had other opportunities in Ireland so we’re delighted to get him in.

“Initially, he had been someone we looked as someone we might bring in on loan so we’re delighted to be able to sign him on a permanent basis for the season.

“He’s a defensive midfielder, good on the ball and can play at the back too.

“He’s never played League of Ireland football before so, like a number of our new players, it will take time to find his feet so we have to be patient.

“But he does have the benefit of having played first-team football though. He’s played for Dundee United’s first team and has had successful loan spells.

“He’s a sensible young lad who is very driven and has made a conscious decision to move country to progress his career.”

Allardice cannot wait to get started although he will have to sit out Saturday’s IRN-BRU Cup quarter-final at Dalymount Park as he is cup-tied having lined out for Dundee United’s U20s earlier in the competition.

He said: “I’m just looking forward to playing. Training has been excellent. The coaching from the Trevor Croly was brand new, first class.

“I really enjoyed it and I can see myself getting better here with that training and way of playing. That’s one of the reasons I came here. I just like to get on the ball as much as I can, try start attacks and play football on the ground.

“Trevor and the gaffer have been different class. They want to play the right way and I think Keith has spoken to me more in the last few weeks more than my family have!

“Keith has really made me feel wanted and has told me that Bohs is a club where I will develop and be given a platform to show what I can do.

“He was brilliant with me and has already made me feel at home. We have a young team so hopefully the fans will be patient but I think there’s real quality in that team and think we can kick on in time.”

Allardice is well-placed to offer opinion on Saturday’s opponents, adding: “East Fife are doing well. They try and play a bit of football compared to a lot of the Scottish lower league teams where it can sometimes be a bit more direct.

“They get down and pass it and are flying this year. They’ll be coming over in form and confident. It’s Bohs’ first game together which will be tricky but hopefully the lads can go out and hit the ground running.”

The American Bohemians: Saturday January 26th

SATURDAY JANUARY 26th, 1pm
Members’ Bar, Dalymount Park

Long before Red Bull were founding branded football teams or Man City’s billionaire owners were creating sister clubs across the Atlantic and even before Pelé and the Cosmos, there was the New York Bohemians.

Come to the Members’ Bar in Dalymount Park on Saturday 26th January (1pm) to learn about who the New York Bohemians really were and what their lives were like.

This is a story of a motley crew of clerks, labourers and revolutionaries left the poverty and turbulence of Dublin in the 1920s for a better life and then tried to rebuild Dalymount in Queens.

The talk will be given by Bohemian supporters and football historians Michael Kielty and Gerard Farrell.

The talk is free but there will be a collection in support of the Bohemians foundation. Light refreshments will be provided.

A message from Keith Long

To all Bohemian supporters, I would like, on behalf of the players and staff, to wish you all a peaceful, healthy and prosperous new year.

The understanding, togetherness and chemistry between players, staff and supporters has been fantastic and we want to strengthen that bond in 2019.

There has been significant change of personnel in the off-season and we have said goodbye to some really fantastic people.

The new year, however, offers us different challenges and an opportunity to work with a new group of young, hungry players who are prepared to represent its people with pride and character.

With your valued and continued support, we look forward to 2019 with positivity and optimism.

“Like all of the young lads coming home and into the squad, this is going to be a different challenge for him and a step up.

“But he has quality and I believe he has the hunger in his belly to learn and succeed at Bohemians.”
