Shining Lights

Although this season has not played out as many Gateshead fans predicted, there has been a few shining beacons on the pitch.

Players such as Davie Southern, Chris Hughes, Steve Salvin and Craig Baxter have caught the eye in a mid table team.

Davie Southern a 3 time winner of the northern league title returned to Gateshead to help make and get goals, and that is what he has done. His Likeable personality and ability to make a goal from nothing has made him a firm favourite with the Heed Army Faithful.

Chris Hughes the tireless midfielder arrived at the club from relegated conference North side Scarborough. Chris has had league experience at Darlington before joining Scarborough. His pin point passes from midfield turn defence into attack with one touch.

Steve Salvin the box to box powerhouse, he was not thought to be the strongest signing made in pre season by the Heed Army. But his on pitch displays have shown he was a very important part of the Gateshead midfield/squad this season.

Craig Baxter the shy lad with a gentle personality has the tackle of a demon and the crosses of David Beckham on his day. Craig arrived after being in the Newcastle United youth and reserve teams. A Heed Army favourite.
