Striker Richard Peniket has been reunited with his former FC Halifax Town manager Neil Aspin after agreeing a move to Gateshead.

The move comes after Peniket rejected the offer of a new deal from the Shaymen. peniket

He began his career at Fulham, although didn’t make a first team appearance for the Cottagers.

During his time at Craven Cottage he did receive international recognition, gaining Wales Under-19 and Under-21 caps, making a sole appearance for the latter in a 2-1 defeat against Hungary in 2011.

He gained first team experience with loan moves to Hereford United, Kidderminster Harriers, AFC Telford United and Farnborough, before joining Tamworth in 2013 after being released by Fulham.

After one season with the Lambs, Peniket joined FC Halifax Town before the 2014/15 season.

The striker scored eleven goals last season, as the Shaymen won promotion into the Vanarama National League via the play-offs.

He scored in each leg of their National League North play-off semi-final against Salford City and played the whole game as they beat Chorley in the final.

Peniket is also reunited with former Shaymen team mates James Bolton and Jordan Burrow at the International Stadium.
