Tinkler Heeds In

Aldershot Town have completed the signing of former-Gateshead full-back Robbie Tinkler. He becomes Danny Searle’s eighth summer signing.

The 22-year old defender spent last season at Gateshead where he played in all but one of their 46 league games, scoring twice. He plays primarily at right-back but can also play in midfield and anywhere across the back.

He originally joined the Heed on loan back in the 2017/18, making 17 appearances and becoming a fans favourite, prompting the then Heed boss Steve Watson to sign him last summer following his release from Middlesbrough.

A graduate of the Boro Academy, he failed to make a first-team appearance whilst at the Teessiders and had also spent time out on loan at North Ferriby United whilst they were in the National League North.

Welcome to the Shots, Robbie!
