Mark Gillespie

Keeper Mark Gillespie came through the Youth ranks at Brunton Park and was rewarded for his efforts at U18 and Reserve level with a one-year contract.

He made his debut when he came off the bench to play the last 5 minutes of the game against Norwich at Carrow Road in May 2010.

A successful loan spell in the north east with Blyth Spartans led to a second year within the ranks of the professionals at Brunton Park with his deal extended yet further, until June 2015, following more impressive displays.

He made the number one spot his own in season 12/13 and was the regular starting choice until a knee injury left him on the sidelines last season. Now back and fit he is tipped to have another strong season this time round.
