100 league goals for Rory

Tue 16 Feb 2016

He prefers scoring goals rather than talking about them.

But Rory McAllister, the top marksman in League 1, celebrated a milestone in the win over Forfar last weekend.

His early strike, which sent the Blue Toon on their way to a 3-2 victory, was his 100th league goal for Peterhead.

A superb century, which has been achieved in double-quick time. From just 150 league appearances in fact.

The 28 year old also recently surpassed the 112 goal haul, in all competitions, of the long-serving ex Blue Toon forward Martin Bavidge.

McAllister, in only four and a half seasons at Balmoor, is on 115...and counting.

Reflecting on the achievement, McAllister singled out his winner against Rangers at Ibrox, when the teams met in League 2 in 2013, as his favourite.

McAllister told Waves Radio Sport: "It's good to have scored 100 league goals especially in the space of time I have done it in."

"To have beaten Bav's record, in half the time, is good as well, but it's not important getting accolades for yourself."

"It does not matter. I am just happy to keep scoring and happy to be here."

"As long as we keep pushing Dunfermline all the way in the league and have a good day in the cup final in April, that's the most important thing."

McAllister will be aiming to continue his hot streak when second top Peterhead visit Cowdenbeath this weekend.

The Blue Toon crushed the Blue Brzail 7-0 when the teams let met, although Jordon Brown, Steven Noble and Scott Ross will all miss the trip to Central Park through suspension.

McAllister continued: "We beat Cowdenbeath here last time comfortably and down at their place, we drew two-all but I thought we battered them."

"I fancy us going down there and winning. We have a few suspensions for that match so the gaffer will have to reassess things."
