Goalkeeper Aaron Steavens is Consett’s second signing of the summer

Goalkeeper Aaron Steavens is Consett’s second signing of the summer, joining from North Shields.

The 19-year-old agreed terms after the Robins were relegated back to the Northern League over ground grading issues.

He made 17 appearances for our former Northern Premier League Division One East rivals last season, keeping seven clean sheets.

Aaron is a young goalkeeper who attended South Shields FC Academy, picking up Northern League experience on loan at Guisborough Town and Seaham Red Star.

He joins Consett after the departures of Mark Foden to Shildon and Ross Coombe to Ashington.

Consett manager Tony Fawcett has already added Morpeth utility man Ben Ramsey to his squad ahead of the 2023-24 season.
