Gateshead snap up Bartlett
Blue Square Premiership,
Gateshead have made goalkeeper Adam Bartlett their second summer signing following the arrival of James Brown earlier this week.
Bartlett, who is a former England 'C' keeper, was born in Tyneside and joins The Heed from Hereford where he made 121 appearances over three seasons.
Boss Ian Bogie says he is delighted to have added the 26-year-old to his squad for next season: "Bartlett is a player we have tracked for a long time so I am delighted that we have finally got him," he told the club's official website.
"He had a very good first season in the Football League at Hereford and on the back of that signed a two-year deal.
"He is a another local lad and a very good keeper who was named Conference Goalkeeper of the Year in his one season at Kidderminster Harriers in 2008/9.
"He is highly regarded and will bring undoubted qualities to the club, and after James Brown this is another top quality signing for Gateshead."
Bartlett's arrival came just two days after the club announced the signing of Hartlepool striker Brown who has never played at a lower level than League One, scoring 29 goals in 175 appearances for Pools.
