Chris (who joined from Whitley Bay in the summer) has now left the club to join Morpeth Town who are clear leaders by 19 points of the EBAC Northern League Division One.

Chris had asked for a transfer at the end of the year as he was finding travelling to training from his South Tyneside base a problem. The club thank Lee Crossley and Mark Hedley of Morpeth Town for their assistance and all was sorted before the close of the transfer window, allowing International Clearance to be available back to English Football.

Chris made 15 appearances in total for the Black & Gold in season 2017/18.
