Gateshead’s Adam Wrightson joins Mariners on loan

adam-wrightson-gatesheadAdam Wrightson has joined South Shields on a month’s loan from Gateshead.

The 19-year-old winger is in contention to make his debut for Shields in Saturday’s game against Guisborough Town at Mariners Park.

Wrightson is the third Gateshead player to join the Mariners so far this season, following short-term moves for Ben Clark and Luke Hannant.

He is a product of the Tynesiders’ link-up with Gateshead College, having broken into the first-team during last season.

So far this season, he has made five appearances at senior level for Gateshead, and has scored 11 goals in nine outings for the club’s Under-19s side in the Northern Alliance League.

Welcome to Mariners Park, Adam!
