Big centre-forward Gavin Allott will be staying in the Northern Premier League East after opting to move across West Yorkshire to Pontefract Collieries.

The experienced striker and proven goal scorer has scored goals at whichever side he has played for, which includes Liversedge where he scored 14 league goals as they won the Northern Premier League East Division last season.

Gav is also a living legend at Frickley Athletic where is one of their all-time goal leading scorers and has also played for Boston United, Gainsborough Trinity, Shaw Lane and Worksop Town.

Gavin Allott has left Liversedge FC to join Pontefract Collieries.

After signing on with Ponte he told the club's website that the move had largely been down to wanting to work with manager Craig Rouse again.

He said: "I also know a fair few of the lads already, from having had a season with them at Worksop Town.

"I like to work hard for the team and link up with the players, but I also do chip in with assists too.

"I would have liked to have got more league goals last season, but I only played 23 times in the league as we had a competitive team at Liversedge. This season I will aim for at least 20 goals in all competitions, which is a target I set myself every season.

"I am looking forward to seeing you all (supporters) in pre-season friendlies and then for the league campaign too. Then hopefully we can have a successful season together."
