Name: Craig Allen

Debut: 2004-05

Position: Defender

Previous Senior clubs: None

How he signed for Green and Black: University trials

Profile: Craig arrived at the club as a callow youth and spent his first two seasons as a lazy but talented Reserves striker, a move to centre back in Wednesday football proved the turning point in his career.  In recent recents he has matured physically and mentally into an imposing central defender.  Unfortunately he has suffered two shoulder dislocations in the last two seasons and been badly missed.  At the time of his last injury he was in dominant form which earned him a position alongside Cav at the heart of all 2000's decade team. The 2010-11 season has seen Craig return to full fitness and become club captain in addition to 1st team secretary.  Arguably the best central defender in the division who inarguably loves the Green and Black.

Personel comment:"Chief sleeze as he is more commonly known, recently took this acclaimed title from Darren Campbell with his horrendous chat up lines and his terrible flirtatious incident with his neighbours. Not only captain of the 1st team but captain in a number of girls hearts within Newcastle."

Manager comment: "Influential centre back also comfortable in possession. An aggressive competitior and very strong in the air, Craig has been a big miss following a lenghty lay off through injury. His whole hearted performances set a great example to all around him."
