Possible Targets????

The search for a new Heed striker has been in the local papers of late, with talk of former Reading, Cardiff and Newcastle Striker Paul Brayson topping Gateshead's shopping list.
Paul had short spell in a Heed shirt of loan from Northwich Vitoria a few seasons ago, and was a big hit with the fans for his powerful and skilful display.

Another name that has been talked about is Lee Kerr from Whitley Bay, Kerr had trials with Newcastle United last season and several football league sides. Kerr has been described as a skilful attacking player, who can fit in easily on either wing or as a striker.

With the Tynesiders letting Ian Robson return to the Northern League, after he failed to make a impact at UniBond level, find themselves short on cover upfront. A major problem to have for a team pushing or promotion.

Goals have not been hard to come by, with David southern and Graeme Armstrong both on 14 goals for the season.. But if injury was to hit o a red card the Heed are gonna be ankle deep in the pig muck.

Talk of the possible return of the legend that is Craig Nelthorpe (Pictured) to the club have had cold water splashed on the flames, with his Club Doncaster Rovers unwilling to loan Craig to the UniBond level. He has since sign on loan at Halifax Town in the Blue Square Premier.
