Striker Jordan Burrow has today joined York City after leaving Vanarama National League side Gateshead.
Burrow, 25, has played in the Football League for both Stevenage and Morecambe and won the FA Trophy two years ago with Halifax Town. The former England ‘C’ international started his career at Chesterfield but made his senior debut during a loan spell with Boston United.
He scored 10 goals in 39 appearances for Lincoln City in the 2014-15 season before notching 14 goals in 43 league starts for Halifax in 2015-16. Sheffield-born Burrow joined Gateshead in November 2016 and scored 10 goals last season as the Tynesiders finished 17th in the National League.
Manager Martin Gray said: “We have been monitoring him for a long time and he is exactly what we have been looking for in a striker. We are very fortunate to get him to come down to National North as he is a player who could certainly play higher,” Gray added.
“Hopefully he can give us the goals that we need to get a promotion. I am sure, in this league, he will be a real, real nuisance to defenders.”
