Gateshead have signed defender James Bolton on a three-year deal after his stint with FC Halifax Town finished at the end of the season.

Full-back Bolton, 22, leaves the Shaymen less than a week after winning the FA Trophy at Wembley, and is reunited with former boss Neil Aspin.

The England C international call-up, who can play right or centre-back, spent two full seasons at the Shay.

"I think he is good enough to play in the Football League," Aspin said.external-link

"Hopefully we can make that happen at Gateshead. He has all the right attributes. He is tall, he is mobile and he has room to develop further. And I feel he will do that."
