Gateshead FC is delighted to announce the signing of Ethan Pye.
The defender joins on a season-long loan from League Two side Stockport County ahead of our 2022/23 Vanarama National League campaign.
The 19-year-old made three appearances for the reigning National League champions during the first half of the 2021/22 season before joining National League North side Spennymoor Town on loan in January.
Pye went on to make 21 appearances for Spennymoor during the remainder of the season, and appeared in The Moors’ 2-1 defeat at Gateshead International Stadium in February.
“The style of play is a big factor [in joining Gateshead],” he said.
“Last season when I was on loan at Spennymoor we played here and I could see [Gateshead] wanted to play good football and play out from the back.
“That really intrigued me and to work with such a good tactical manager is probably one of the main reasons I wanted to come up here on loan.”
