Port Vale: McAllister in for the long haul
NEW boy Sean McAllister believes his short-term deal at Port Vale is a big opportunity.
The 25-year-old midfielder has signed a contract that will keep him at Vale Park until January, but he's keen to stay for the long haul.
McAllister was an unused substitute at Southend on Saturday after training with the club for a couple of weeks.
Now he can't wait to win a place in the team and show what he can do.

"Once I do get an opportunity, I'm confident I can impress and win a longer deal," he said.
"I'm here until January and it's not a great feeling to have such an uncertain future, but I certainly don't want to be in the position I've been in over the last two months again."
That position, as McAllister explained, was at home on the telephone to managers up and down the country.
"I was promoted last year with Shrewsbury, but they didn't offer me a new deal, so I spent the summer ringing around a few clubs looking for someone to take me," he said.
"Finding a club as an out-of-work footballer was a lot harder than I thought.
"I've had experience in the Championship (with Sheffield Wednesday) and was promoted last year, so I thought I would have a good base to find somewhere.
"Micky then asked me to come down and play in a reserve game.
"I couldn't have found a better team to go to, with Vale second in the league, so I'm delighted to be here and I can't wait to get on the pitch.
"The gaffer has big ambitions and hopefully the takeover will happen soon and I can win a contract and another promotion."
McAllister started his career at Wednesday and spent loan spells at Mansfield and Bury before joining the Shrews.
"I work hard and I read the game well," he said.
"At Shrewsbury, they wanted me to sit in midfield, but I like to get forward and hopefully I can chip in with goals."
