In And Outs????

With the summer break well and truly upon us, new faces are arriving and familiar faces are leaving for pastures new.

Phil Cave could well be a face that leaves in the coming weeks as he searches for a contract in the professional ranks. Cave had a fantastic first year with the Heed, netting 11 goals and hardly ever putting a foot wrong. Rumour’s in the local press are that Scottish side Livingston could be Phil’s destination.
Even if Phil was to stay with the Heed next term, he faces a battle for the left back position with new arrival John Blackstone. The Heed Army wishes Phil all the best if he does leave.

Steve Bowey has left the Tynesiders to play UniBond First Division North with Newcastle Blue Star. His departure was a little unexpected after Captaining the team to promotion last season. But regardless of being a firm favourite with the Heed Army, the team has to move on and forward. His departure gives Phil Turnbull the opportunity to show his playing making skills.

Paul Brayson has been quoted in the local press as saying he is considering an offer from both Newcastle Blue Star and Gateshead. The former Reading and Cardiff City striker helped the Heed achieve promotion in the play-off’s with some important goals, and showed phases of brilliance. Though his all round game was iffy to say the least at times, but he has class, a class that gets goals from nothing.

Graeme Armstrong and winger Wayne Phillips have also both re-signed for the Tynesiders after both enjoying a successful first season.
