Former Newcastle Defender Takes The Helm At Local Club


Gateshead FC have announced former Newcastle United centre-back Mike Williamson as their new head coach.

Below is a tweet with the announcement about the managerial appointment:

Mike Williamson played for Gateshead FC last season making thirty-one appearances in the National League and one in the FA Cup.

He joined Newcastle United on New Years Day 2010 from Portsmouth when we were in the midst of our successful promotion battle back to the Premier League.

Mike made 171 appearances for Newcastle before leaving to join Wolves in January of 2016.

We always thought of Williamson as a model professional who relished the opportunity to play for a club such as Newcastle.

He will have his work cut out for him at Gateshead as they have been through a bit of turmoil lately as explained in the Chronicle a few days ago.

Mike will begin his new reign in the National League North with Gateshead FC. We wish Mike and Gateshead the best of luck this coming season.

    My opinions come from experience, I dont cut and paste them from Google, I’m talking about ownership of my own thoughts not plagiarism of someone else’s experiences or thoughts, unlike yourself.

    I was quite surprised at Chico’s whining
    For me the lack of KBA spin I find quite encouraging
    I have a sense that MA and co have mentally washed their hands of NUFC

    Just been looking on Midhat Kidwai’s twitter page. Few things I noticed, his posts are tagged as coming out of Dubai. Which I’m not sure can be amended?

    https://gyazo.com/c2d8c0d828c745625fb371c7ce04549d

    Also, his country/city is down as London, which not a lot of people knew he is actually from London, but went to work in Dubai. I think this only came to light on companies house. And this hasn’t changed, it was always on his page.

    I feel like a Yo Yo reading all the various reports – The bloody thing almost stopped (at the bottom) when I read the bit about Rafa & Chelsea – then I thought naw he wouldn’t go there! Anywhere but Chelsea. Then I read if he was going he would have told the fans & not have kept us dangling on the string (of the Yo Yo) – I just don’t think he’s the kind of guy to do the dirty on us! So the Yo Yo is back up again here’s hoping that’s where it stays!

    Keep the faith!

    Anybody worked out why Ashley has negotiated a contract with Rafa which he will not sign days before an alleged takeover? No me neither.
    Anybody worked out why the club is making no comment about a takeover? Thats the same club which has always talked up a takeover. NDA has never bothered Ashley in the past. An NDA is there to protect the buyer not the seller. The buyer does not want to advertise his interest and potentially spark a bidding war. The seller has no such issue and advertising a buyers interest is in the sellers interest. So why is Ashley staying quiet this time.
    Work it out guys.

    I’m sure an NDA is also there to protect the seller from having anything leaked from what has been seen in the books, during due diligence.

    Which I am sure there is a few secrets MA wants to keep secret in there til hes gone.
