Alan re-joined the club at the beginning of the 2015 season after seven years plying his trade in England, and has fitted in seamlessly on his return to the club.
A product of the club’s youth system, Bennett was a part of the team that won the league title in 2005, forming a formidable partnership at the heart of the defence with Dan Murray. These performances resulted in a move to Reading in 2007 followed by spells at several other football league clubs until his return home this year.
Capped twice at senior level by the Republic of Ireland, Bennett is a natural leader, as indicated by spells as captain of Cheltenham Town and AFC Wimbledon and more reently captaining CCFC to a league and cup double in 2017.
Bennett signed a new, two year contract ahead of the 2018 season.
