Gateshead have re-signed defender Craig Baxter after a season with Northern League side Bedlington Terriers.

The 26-year-old was released at the end of the 2011-12 season by former boss Ian Bogie, with 269 appearances to his name at the International Stadium.

"It's great to be back," Baxter told the club website.external-link

"It was disappointing to be released by Gateshead in 2012 and you don't often get the chance to rejoin a club after only one year away."

No precise details of the new contract have been issued by the club.
