Gateshead have signed full-back Scott Barrow from Southern Premier League club Merthyr Town on a one-year deal.

The 28-year-old former Wales non-league international previously made 38 appearances for Newport County in the 2015-16 season.

Gateshead boss Neil Aspin tried to sign him when he was in charge at Halifax.

"He's now got the chance to come back into professional football. He has the hunger to do well and is a proven player at this level," said Aspin.
