Romario Vieira has been discussing his move to Tadcaster Albion, which came soon after he was announced as a new signing at Gateshead.

The former Leeds United prospect had officially joined the Heed on non-contract terms in early-October.

He explains the circumstances around his subsequent return to former club Taddy:

“Gateshead came about because that’s where I did my knee last year. When I left Leeds, I went to Doncaster and it didn’t really work out there and I had to get surgery on my ankle.

“It took me four or five months to recover from that, and when I recovered, I started training with Gateshead, to hopefully end up signing for them. Then in my first week of training, I did my knee, my meniscus. I had surgery for that and it took me a year-and-a-bit to recover from.

“When I recovered, that’s when I went back up there to train with them. They decided to put me on non-contract to see how I’d progress, after being out so long.

“Me and the manager decided just to let me go and get game time somewhere else, find my feet and come back here, or if not, then somewhere else. Within myself, I just felt like I needed a fresh start.

“I reached out to my agent and I asked him about Taddy. He said ‘it’s not a bad option, to be honest,’ and I just said ‘yeah, it’s somewhere where I would be free and just start enjoying football again.’”
