Player review: Jones and Turnbull

The two young lads came in and set there stall out, they didn’t get pushed off the ball, they dictated the ball.

Carl Jones at the back gave a master class in defending from his very first game, his presence alongside the mighty Curtis gave the Heed at formidable back line.
Jones has been rocked by injury’s in the past and have hampered his football league career, being stuck down twice as he was Gaining first team football at York City and Hartlepool United. But since pulling on the colours of GFC Jones has stood tall and bounced out of every tackle, much to the delight of jones himself.
Phil Turnbull also had a impact in midfield, giving fresh options in the push for the play-offs and the promotion that followed.
Turnbull’s style of play is that of Heed Army legend Paul Proudlock, his vision is like that of a hawk, picking out team mates from 2 yards to 42 yards with pin point passes.
Phil like Jones also played for York City and Hartlepool united, but has really found his feet since he arrived at Gateshead.
Both players are young and very exciting prospects, thank go they play for the Heed!!!
Season ratings for both players 8 out of 10.
