Gateshead forward Ruairí Keating has hailed the character and togetherness at the club.

The Irishman made the move a long way north to join the Heed from Torquay back in January. Prior to the season suspension after the COVID-19 outbreak, he was bidding to help the Tynesiders back into the National League at the first attempt.

Keating spoke about the spirit in Mike Williamson’s side as part of his in-depth conversation with Non-League Daily:

“Definitely just an honest, hard-working, decent bunch of lads. There’s no bad eggs, there’s no big-time Charlies, we’re all in the same boat.

“We’re like a bunch of mates at school. Everybody’s here to enjoy it, play football and just be happy.

“There’s a bit of craic but there’s no messing around. We’re given the platform to just go and be happy and give all you can and showcase what you’ve got.

“It’s a great group of lads and coaching staff.”
