'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mills finally gets his man

Former York City loan striker Jon Shaw has returned to Conference Premier side Gateshead on a two-year contract.

"He's an excellent striker, and one I tried to sign for York" - Gary Mills
The 30-year-old marksman previously scored 56 goals in 96 appearances for the Tynesiders until joining Luton Town two years ago.

Gateshead manager Gary Mills had already tried to sign him on loan last season but has finally got his man at the third time of asking, having also missed out at York.

Beginning his career at hometown Sheffield Wednesday, Shaw has also represented Burton Albion, Halifax Town, Rochdale and Mansfield Town, plus having loans at Crawley Town and Barrow.

"He's an excellent striker, and one I tried to sign for York when I was manager at Bootham Crescent," Mills told Gateshead's official website. "He went to Luton instead, but I'm delighted to have now got my man.

"He's back in an environment he's comfortable with - and he was hungry to come back to Gateshead," he added. "He's a proven goalscorer at this level. He didn't play as much as he would have liked at Luton last season and this is an opportunity for him to get going again."
