The Season So far: Player Ratings Part 1

This is part one of a review of the players so far this season, looking at their performances thus far.

To start off the summary:

The Goal Keepers:

Michael Price

Micheal started off well in his first game against Burscough on the first game of the season keeping a clean sheet. and also did very well against a strong marine attack in the following game. Injury has hampered his season after 8 games.

Season rating so far 7

Simon Bishop

Simon is a Keeper with a vast experience in the higher levels of the non-league game. playing many seasons for Barrow. Simon has done well since his late arrival at Gateshead, but he has looked off the pace a little at times with his movement.

Season rating so far 7

Richard Swann
Richard has only made on appearance this season in the Durham cup but did well

Season rating so far 6

The Defenders

Paul Talbot

Paul is in classic form for Gatehead, does his job well and gets forward, due a goal

Season rating so far 7

Steve Baker

Steve's start to the season wasn't the best, he looked out of place in the centre of defence, and soon picked up an injury. After his injury Steve cam back into the side at right back and has looked a class act.

Season rating so far 7

Richard Flynn

Richard started off well playing at right back, after a few seasons at centre back. injury has hampered his season.

Season rating so far 7

James Curtis

This could well be Jame's best season at Gateshead so far, with solid defending and scoring in front of goal.

Season rating so far 8

Chris Hanson
Chris has become a great partner for Curtis at the back and both players cover each other well.

Season rating so far 7

Craig Baxter

Craig started off slow but has become a key member of the Gateshead squad, starting off at right back and also playing on the wing. he has started creating goals as well as helping stopping them being made for the opposition.

Season rating so far 8

Part two will have from midfiled to Strikers reviews.
