Former Junior Lone Star FC’s forward Anthony Allison has been named the 2015 Top Scorer in Sweden’s Division II Norra Svealand where he scored 20 goals in 24 matches for Sandvikens IF. Allison’s goals helped to propel his club to finish second in the league table but that wasn’t enough for promotion to Division I.

Allison, who signed for the Division II side this season after spending the 2014 season at Division III’s Frano SK, has been a household name in the Swedish League System for the past five seasons.

Originally from Liberia, Allison grew up in the United States where he received his football training at Junior Lone Star FC and Wilmington University.

Formerly known as Sargbah Tarpeh, Allison began his youth soccer career at Junior Lone Star FC in 2001 and was a member of the Junior Lone Star U-23 squad that won the club’s first championship in 2008 with the U-23 State title, a subsequent U-23 regional title, and was a national semifinalists.

After graduating from Overbrook High School, Allison was a standout forward at Wilmington University, where he was a NSCAA and NCAA Daktronics First Team All-America selection. Allison was also named Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC), Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), and NCAA Daktronics East Region Player of the Year. He was also a First Team All-Region selection and a four-time First Team All-CACC award winner at Wilmington University, finishing his collegiate career with 56 goals and 26 assists in 72 games.

Undrafted out of college, Allison signed his first professional contract in 2010 with the Puerto Rico Islanders of the USL before going to Sweden where he has been progressing every year.

After his arrival in Sweden in 2011, Allison played for IFK Sundsvall where he scored a whopping 24 goals in 21 matches and won the Top Scorer Award in the Sweden’s Division III Mellersta.

In 2012, he transferred to Division II Harnosands FF where he scored another 19 goals in 21 matches for the club as they finished third in the league table, but he fell short of winning the Division II Top Scorer title.

    Oh my Goodness,

    If you look at every move made since, Mr Stewart has arrived including Earnie himself, everyone has been at the “train station of life” and the Union ” U ” train has come into the station just when the individual was a point in their lives to contribute their best to this club.

    He wasn’t picked up in 2010 went south then moved over to Europe and now with the new F.O is in place he is here to help this team succeed!

    I haven’t been this excited for the upcoming season since 2011.
