Steve "The Saint" Salvin

Steve Salvin joined Gateshead in the Summer of 2006, signed by then Heed manager Tony Lee.

Many Gateshead fans can be forgiven for thinking "who the hell is STEVE SALVIN" when he was signed from Newcastle Blue Star.
A squad player or bench player many fans thought he would become, yet first impressions of ordinary sharp turned in to admiration for the battling midfielder.

Box to Box, Always thinking, Battling and Goal getting midfielder have all been used to describe Steve. Yet there could be ten more terms to used when talking about last years Club Captain.
Seven goals last season and four goals in 3 games this season shows he hasn't lost the touch over the Summer break. The feat of scoring 4 goals this season is even more impressive as he has played two games as a make shift defender in the absence of Steve Baker, though a knee injury.

Could Salvin score 5 in four games? we wait in excitement to see against Frickley on Wednesday night!!!!
