North Shields Football Club are delighted to announce that Chris Salmon has joined the club for the 2019/20 season.
The former Gateshead, York City and Whitley Bay youngster joins the Robins after spending last season with division one rivals Bishop Auckland.
Whilst at the Two Blues, Chris suffered an injury which ruled him out of contention for the remainder of that season.
Chris is another versatile addition to the club as the winger is also able to play in defence and has even been known to start up front on occasion.
After adding Chris to his squad, Marc was delighted to have brought another familiar face to the club.
“We signed him at Whitley Bay from Billingham Synthonia back in 2017 and last year he was at Bishops but sustained an injury before the end of the season,” said Nash.
“He’s only just returning from that injury so won’t be available for a couple of weeks I suspect.”
Nash added “The squad has been running a little thin of late. With Gary Day being a long term injury and Jordan Summerly also still a few weeks away it only takes a couple to be away or unavailable then we down to the bones.”
“With a busy schedule coming up as the new league cup format begins in delighted to have been able to strengthen the squad with Denver and Chris. Both exceptionally quick they add another dimension and choice for us.”
Chris himself was also delighted to be joining the Robins for the rest of the season.
“I am delighted to sign for a very strong North Shields side after 6 months out through a knee ligament tear,” said Salmon.
“I hope to get straight back into the swing of things and make a immediate impact after a hard few months recovery.”
“I would like to thank the fans, Marc and Woody for welcoming me into the club after a injury spell.”
Everyone at the club would like to welcome Chris and hope that he has a successful spell in NE29.
