Lend Your Support!!!!!!!!

Team for Worksop

Gateshead travel to Worksop this Saturday, and are set to be without three key players.

Jamie Harwood and left sided pair Wayne Phillips and Phil Cave (pictured), all miss the trip to Nottinghamshire.

With Gateshead Gunning for their 3rd win of the season, missing three first team players will not help the Heed Army's cause.
We know we have players who are more than capable of stepping in and doing a great job for the Heed.

The Heed Army Blog predicts a starting line up of:
Ian Robson could be in line get his first start for the Heed at Worksop and Richard Flynn may be recalled to fill in at the centre of defence to rekindle his partner ship with
James Curtis.

Heed Army TV Whitby Game

Sorry for loss of sound again in parts of this video.

14 Of The Best!!!!

Many Gateshead fans will never have witnessed such a run of game without defeat. 14 games unbeaten is a fantastic achievement, clubs like Manchester United or Chelsea would be proud of that runs of games.

What its down to i hear you ask, well one name that springs to mind and that would be Ian Bogie(pictured). His
understanding of the game has earned him the respect of the Heed dressing room, which has been transported on to the pitch.
A clean passing game has been but in place and the flare of DavieSouthern and Steve Bowey
is already starting to show in the early part of the new season.

The 14 unbeaten games have been against:

Mossley vs Gateshead

Gateshead vs North Ferriby Utd

Grantham vs Gateshead

Ashton Utd vs Gateshead

Gateshead vs AFC Telford

Hednesford vs Gateshead

Gateshead vs AFC Lincoln

Guisley vs Gateshead

Gateshead vs Leek

Gateshead vs Witton Albion

Matlock Town vs Gateshead

Gateshead vs Mossley

Eastwood Away and Whitby at home this season.

Gateshead having to wait 2 weeks before their next game away to Worksop Town on September the 1st, the Heed Army have plenty of time to fill the next supporters coach.

Gateshead 2 Whitby Town 1

Gateshead FC are now 14 games unbeaten, as the Ian Bogie football machine rolls on.

Whitby Town came with a game plan of closing Gateshead down and and slowing the game down.

Its worked in the middle part of the match but
Gateshead had many chances in front of goal, Graeme Armstrong hand 5 chances alone in the first half.

Gateshead Did take the lead Before the break through Jamie Harwood from a great Davie Southern cross.

After the break Steve Salvin slipped with the ball on the edge of the box and Whitby got level with shot from just inside the area.

Yet as on Saturday
Steve Salvin leaped like a salmon to bury such a sweet header past the Whitby keeper.

Heed Win 2-1

Line up and ratings:

Made two goals, stood up and was counted

Heed Army TV at Eastwood

Sorry for loss of sound again, hopefully the gremlins will be ironed out in coming video's.

Eastwood Town 1 Gateshead 3

Pre match jitters were not helped when the referee awarded a penalty in the opening minutes of the game to Eastwood, the penalty was scored and Gateshead started the fight back with the Heed Army in full voice.

Gateshead's first goal was scored by Graeme Armstrong, a fantastic finish from inside the area.
Super Steve Salvin scored the second to send the travelling Heed Army wild behind the goal.

sealed a great opening day win with well placed shot in a goal mouth scramble.

Gateshead were never in trouble in this match, with the side never moving in to second gear.
Peter Keen only had the penalty to deal with, after being judged to have brought down the Eastwood striker.

Make shift defender
Steve Salvin was solid throughout and looked more than adequate to fill the role as and when needed.

Line Up and ratings:

Keen 7
Solid and never really tested

Cave 7
Also never tested, fitted in well in the Gateshead defence

Baxter 7
His all round play was spot on, and got up when in attack

Salvin 8
Natural born Player

Curtis 8
Was in tip top condition, nothing getting past him

Phillips 8
Took his goal well and made life hard for the east wood defence

Bowey 8
Captain marvel, VINTAGE, like and old wine, has got better with age.

McClen 8
Battled hard, great edition to the midfield

Southern 8
More than a hand full and usual

Armstrong 9
Fantastic match scored and was a real team player

The Unibond Is Upon Us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With the new season nearly upon us, what can we expect this campaign????

With most of last years squad still in team we know that the club is trying to build from last season unbeaten run of 12 games in the last 12 games.

New and old face's are back in the fold at Gateshead with Steve Bowey (Pictured Below) returning to the club from last years conf play off losers York City. His Return has seen him Become Gateshead Captain this year, with his experience and knowledge this can only be a good move.
His Pre-season Preformance's have brought back memory of his first stint at the club, where his flare and all round play always rises to the top.

In addition to Bowey's arrival Gateshead splashed the cash on Graeme Armstrong from Dunston Fed, £5000 is believed to have been the sum of money that was needed to bring Armstrong into the Heed fold.
Armstrong has showed his ability to find the back of the net in the pres-season, Time will tell if he does so in the Unibond Prem.

Marc Bell also arrived to become number one choice goal keeper, Marc made a hand full of fantastic appearance's for Gateshead last year. Those games he played has led to him being signed permanently for this season.

The Heed Army Blog Player to watch out for the year is going to be Jamie Harwood (pictured Right).

Jamie Joined Gateshead From Worksop Town last season and has fitted in well. He has made the right wing his own and dominates against any left.

With the old and the addition of the new players, Gateshead will be wanting to be in the top half of Unibond Premier Division and challenging for the play-off or even the championship.

Heed Army TV "Paul Thompsons Testimonial"

Sorry for the loss of sound in this video.

Gateshead FC 3 Newcastle United 3

What a game!!! where do you start????

I'll start by saying I never thought we would match a Newcastle XI never mind play them off the park for much of the first half.

Mighty Jamie Harwood (pictured below) stole the show down the right hand side ripping the Newcastle left back to bits time after time.

Goals came from Davie Southern, and Graeme Armstrong. While two of Newcastle united's Goals Came from Shola Amiobe.

A special Thanks to Tyneside football fan neighbours the Toon Ultras's who help get the Atmosphere up another level.

But the Main man Paul "THOMMO" Thompson got a great reception from the great crowd who showed up the their many hundreds!!!

Well done Paul and the Heed Army hopes you enjoyed your night!!!!

The Butcher, The Candle Stick Maker But What About Baker???????

Towards the back end of last season one man rised to the top, to become everyones first name on the Gateshead team sheet, the man is Steve Baker.
His commanding performance was a huge factor in the Heed Army's 12 match unbeaten run at the back end of last season's campaign.

Gateshead face having to be without the former Scarborough big man for up to two and a half months due to a injury he sustained during the pre-season friendly at Newcastle Benfield last month.

The Heed Army Blog wishes Steve Baker a speedy recovery.
