The defender joins the Heed a day after the departure of James Bolton to Shrewsbury Town.

Twenty four year old Kerr has spent the last two seasons in the Scottish First Division Cowdenbeath and Stenhousemuir, although began his career with SkyBet Championship club Birmingham City.

In August 2012 he joined Motherwell on a six-month loan, a spell that was extended up to the end of the 2012/13 season.

The defender was released by Birmingham upon his return to St Andrews and joined Motherwell on a two year deal.

He left Fir Park at the end of the 2014/15 season and spent for following season with Cowdenbeath, before joining Stenhousemuir twelve months later.

His international career has seen the Rutherglen-born centre back represent Scotland at Under 16s, 17s, 19s and 21 level.

Now he becomes the latest player to join Neil Aspin’s new-look defensive ranks at Gateshead.

So far this summer the Heed boss has added Neil Byrne, Scott Barrow and Theo Vassell to his squad.

After initially joining Gateshead last season Danny Burns has returned to the club from a loan spell at Buxton and youngster Jon Mellish has signed his first professional contract.

Incredibly centre back Jamal Fyfield remains the only defender remaining from last season’s Gateshead squad.
