Gateshead’s players and staff are still awaiting receipt of their wages for the month of April.
With the wages now a fortnight overdue, the club’s former sports therapist Annie Davis is continuing to help out with player treatment. Despite being sacked, along with the rest of the Heed’s staff, Davis has been treating teenage midfielder Elliot Forbes, who has a significant hamstring injury.
She has now been treating Under-19 players after they picked up injuries last week. The treatment has been taking place at nearby Hebburn Town, who allowed Gateshead to use their training and other facilities after the club was no longer permitted to use the International Stadium due to unpaid council bills.
