PETER Grant has conceded Kevin O'Hara is likely to move on from Alloa Athletic this summer - but says he will go with the best wishes of everyone at the club. 

The forward earned plaudits from across the game for his electric first season in Clackmannanshire, finishing as the Wasps' joint-top goalscorer, winning the SPFL's Championship Player of the Month award in January, and being crowned as the Alloa Advertiser's Player of the Year.

It's always been accepted at Alloa the 21-year-old would be free to return to the full-time game if an offer came along and it's understood a number of clubs are currently courting his signature. 

Grant says the door will always be open for O'Hara to stay in Clacks, but the gaffer knows the former Falkirk player must do what is best for his career. 

Grant told Advertiser Sport: "It has always been the case when we signed him that I knew he was a talented kid and my son Peter knew him well from playing with him.

"It was Peter who told me to get in touch with Kevin and I told him to come and see what we are all about and get the chance to do himself justice.

"It was always a risk for him to come down from the full-time game but I knew he didn't want to be one of the hundreds of guys in a pub telling people abut what could have been.

"We wanted to help him get back to full-time football and now there are definitely a few clubs interested in Kevin. That's okay with me as I want Kevin O'Hara and others to have a chance to have a career in full-time football.

"I will be delighted for him if he can find a club in the full-time game and he will always be welcome at Alloa."
