Three of last season players have left to join local UniBond Div 1 side Newcastle Blue Star, Steve Bowey, Jamie McClen and Paul Brayson.
McClen who spent the back end of last season on loan at Blue Star was the first to sign, shortly Followed by then Heed captain Steve Bowey.
Bowey left under a cloud of smoke over contractual agreements, which he felt he had been let down by the club. This coming after Bowey had agreed to the contract offer he had been offered before hand.
Paul Brayson seemed to have placed himself in a bidding war between Gateshead and Blue Star, GFC did not want to be caught up in it, and gave Brayson his offer and a deadline to accept.
Brayson did not respond to the offer and the rest is history as they say.
Three very talented players have dropped to a level below their skills, money talks and everyone has to make a living, football fans often forget this. But the question on every Heed fans lips, why drop two leagues after reaching the Conf North????
The Heed Army Blog would like to thank all three players for the hard work in last season Promotion.
Here is a few songs dedicated to the former Heed Trio:
