St Pat's latest signing David McAllister took some time out at the recent press briefing to speak to stpatsfc.com

On Signing for the Saints from Shelbourne

I always wanted to play in the Premier Division, to give it a shot so when Pat's came in for me well that was it.

Liam Kelly (an ex-Pat's player) a good friend of the family's was always telling me that Pat's were a great club and that if you play well and give it your all then the fans really get behind you.

I had missed out promotion with Shelbourne for the last two years which was tough, I was on loan from Drogheda in the first year and losing the last game of the season was a nightmare and then losing out in the play-offs this season was heartbreaking.

On keeping up his goal scoring form with St Pat's next season

I'd love to keep scoring and perhaps it may be no harm to put myself under a bit of pressure.

I got a few penalties for Shels last year and wouldn't mind taking one or two for Pat's if I got the chance.

I also got a few last year from breaking into the box from midfield but I'll do whatever shift Pete asks me to do.

On celebrating his upcoming birthday

I grew up in Rush playing soccer with the local team and then played underage for both Home Farm and Bohemians and I'm still living up there.

I'll be 21 on the 29th December but after looking at John Gill's training programme I don't think I'll be going to any parties around Rush this Christmas!
