Gateshead Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of Owen Bailey.
Bailey joins the club on a one-year deal following a successful trial period, with the option of a second-year extension available at the club’s discretion.
The defender appeared as a substitute for The Heed in last week’s 4-1 pre-season win over Hartlepool United.
The 22-year-old most recently appeared for Newcastle United U23’s during the 2020/21 season and captained The Magpies’ second-string to the 2019 Premier League 2 Division Two play-off final and Premier League Cup final.
Bailey was also involved in Newcastle’s first-team pre-season tour of China in the summer of 2019, appearing as a substitute against Wolves.
