Tinkler Loaned To Heed

By Steve Whitney

Vanarama National League club Gateshead have confirmed the loan signing of 20-year-old midfielder Robbie Tinkler from Sky Bet Championship side Middlesbrough until January 2018.

The combative Tinkler made fifteen appearances for relegated North Ferriby United in the second half of the 2016/17 season, scoring 4 goals.

A regular in Boro`s under-23 set-up, Tinkler has joined up with the Heed just in time to experience a full pre-season with his new team-mates ahead of Thursday`s match at Ebac Northern League side Dunston UTS.

Tinkler becomes Gateshead`s seventh summer signing, following on from Russell Penn, JJ O`Donnell, Kieran Green, Richard Peniket, Neill Byrne and Scott Barrow.
