National League club Gateshead have signed left-back Jordan Cranston on a one-year deal after a successful trial.

Cranston was available on a free transfer, having been released by League Two side Notts County in July.

The 21-year-old made 12 appearances for the Magpies last season and he also featured in 11 Conference games for Lincoln during a two-month loan spell.

"Jordan has come in and been very good," Gateshead manager Malcolm Crosby told the club's website.external-link

"Matty Pattison has been outstanding, but he needs to be pushed.

"Plus, Matty can play in a number of positions, so Jordan knows he has a chance here."
