Gateshead manager Neil Aspin has raided his former club FC Halifax Town to sign striker Jordan Burrow.
The move comes less than twenty four hours after the Heed allowed Reece Styche to join Nuneaton Town on loan.
In May, along with new Gateshead team mates James Bolton and Sam Johnson, Burrow was in the starting line-up for the Shaymen as they won the FA Trophy with a shock 1-0 win over Grimsby Town.
And despite suffering relegation from the National League just a week before their big Wembley date, Burrow still managed to hit eighteen goals for the club last season.
It was Aspin that took Burrow to Halifax just months before his departure from the club, as the striker joined following his release from Lincoln City, where he had scored ten goals in his forty three Imps appearances.
Earlier in his career he had spells with the likes of Morecambe, Stevenage and Chesterfield.
And in his time with the latter he spent two months on loan with Boston United, scoring two goals in eight appearances for the Pilgrims.
The Heed confirmed that Burrow would wear the number fifteen shirt this season and he will join the squad in time for Tuesday’s home game against Tranmere Rovers.
