Alex is a strong, ball-playing centre-half who joins County after a really good youth career – that culminated in playing for Bolton Wanderers Academy – but he is now ready for the next chapter in his footballing life…

With an eye for a pass and a great leap on him, we are looking forward to embedding him into wearing a blue shirt and if he plays as well as expected, he will be an important signing for us during the 2022-2023 season.

Welcome to the County family Gatesie!
