672 Neil Allison

Biography

Powerful defender Neil Allison came through the ranks at his home town club and made his first team debut at 17 against Newcastle, in City’s final Second Division game of the 1990s. For the next two seasons he was an irregular presence in the first team but as the Tigers youth was given its chance under Terry Dolan’s management Allison came of age in 1993/94. Injury robbed City of Allison’s services for much of the next season, but he roared back in 1995/96. In 1996/97 he played for two months before he was released by the Tigers and had short spells at Swindon Town, Sligo Rovers, North Ferriby United and Chesterfield.

Allison then had two years in Singapore before he returned to blighty with Gainsborough Trinity and stayed at the Lincolnshire side for six years. His career drew to a close after half a season at Ossett Town and nearly two seasons back at North Ferriby United.

Allison was assistant manager for much of his time at Gainsborough, and between 2007 and 2010 he managed North Ferriby United, having previously played for the Church Road side. Outside of football, Neil has worked in sales and marketing since 2003, firstly at ARCO in Hull and from 2010 onwards in Western Australia.
