Yeovil Town promotion-winning captain Jamie McAllister has told the Gloverscast that he wanted to stay at Huish Park when he was released in 2014.

The Scotsman had made 40 appearances as the Glovers were relegated from the Championship after just one season and said he expected to be offered a new contract.

Speaking on the latest interview in our GloversPast series, he said: “The big low was getting let go. I’d played 40-odd games in the Championship, I was expecting to sign a new deal, but it never came.

I wanted to stay and play another year or two, but for whatever reason, it didn’t happen.

It wasn’t down to finances or anything, I just never got offered anything which was disappointing.

In the interview, he talks to us about how Gary Johnson’s vision of what he could achieve at Yeovil led him to turn down a move north of the border, his memories of that magical day at Wembley in 2013, and playing in front of crowds of more than 80,000 having moved to the Indian Super League having left Yeovil.
