Adam Boyes: Gateshead agree deal to sign Barrow striker
Gateshead have signed striker Adam Boyes on a one-year contract after agreeing what they describe as a "compensation package" with Barrow.
The 22-year-old scored 40 goals in 99 games for Barrow, having previously played for York, Scunthorpe and Boston.
"He scored a lot of goals in a relegated side and that speaks volumes.
"He is a big lad who handles the ball well and can play in various attacking positions," Gateshead manager Anth Smith told the club website.
Boyes, an England C international, played for York at Wembley in the 2009 FA Trophy final before moving on to Scunthorpe for a six-figure fee.
"We made inquiries about the player in January and have monitored the situation since then," Smith said.
"Boyes was a prime target, so I am delighted to get him on board."
