Season over: Curtis Allen

Coleraine chairman Colin McKendry says he feels "exceptionally sorry" for Curtis Allen after the striker's contract was not extended at Glentoran, making him ineligible when the Irish Cup resumes later this month.

The Bannsiders are unable to extend the loan of a player who will officially be a free agent and the east Belfast club's decision seems to be the result of the tensions which rose between clubs during the stormy discussions over how to curtail the season and share European money.

Coleraine face Ballymena United in the semi-final but the former Linfield frontman is out of contract from today.
