Gateshead Gaffer is Heed over Heels with Monthly Award

Gateshead's Mike Williamson is the Vanarama National League North Manager of the Month for February.

Mike Williamson has been a man on a mission ever since he walked through the door at Gateshead.

Whisper it quietly but the Heed have certainly been in promotion-winning form over the last ten games.

After starting the month a point adrift of the top seven, Gateshead not only closed that gap, but also the gap on third.

Williamson's men ended February with an 11-game unbeaten run, stretching back to December, still intact after wins against Leamington and Curzon Ashton.

The Heed also saw off Boston United with ease - ending the Pilgrims' six-game winning streak in the process.

And while a goalless draw at Kidderminster Harriers won't have excited many, fighting back from two down to gain a point at Guiseley will have done the opposite.

Things are also looking rosy away from the pitch. Williamsom made Toby Lees' stay at the club a permanent one after he impressed on loan.

With only two of their final games coming against current top seven sides, are the Heed going to end their stay in the National League North at the first time of asking?
