Imps Striker Target Joins Bulls

Richard Brodie the former Crawley Town & York City has left Gateshead FC for a loan spell at Hereford United.  Gary Simpson had previously enquired about the lad in the summer but had been unable to match the wages Gateshead have been dishing out. Former Imp Larkin is also said to be on substantially more than the Imps paid him last season.

Although the manager seems in no rush to spend the loan budget, Brodie if fit would have been a great addition alongside Tomlinson up front. Simmo had almost landed Richard during his half-season loan at Grimsby last term but the window shut before a deal could be tied up.  Fit is the question however, as the player is understood not to be featuring for the Heed with concerns over his general fitness, this, despite 2 goals in the first 7 games.

Brodie is a big strong lad who should be plying his trade further up the pyramid. He’s a no frills lad but his aerial presence and shot are hot to handle when he has his tail up. Canny manager Martin Foyle will reignite that if anyone can Brodie got 69 goals in 165 appearances for him at York City.
