Peterhead captain and club legend Rory McAllister has made a shock switch to League 2 title challengers Cove Rangers.

The 32-year-old sealed a move to the SPFL newcomers after the Blue Toon accepted an offer thought to be in five figures.

Peterhead agreed to sell after McAllister - scorer of more than 200 goals in his eight years at Balmoor - handed in a transfer request, telling boss Jim McInally that he wanted a new challenge.

The former Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Brechin City striker had 18 months left on his contract.
