Gateshead suffered a dent in their promotion hopes as they lost 1-0 to North Ferriby United.

Reece Thompson's strike on 31 minutes was enough to see of the Heed Army which see them lose their third game in succession.

The defeat leaves Gateshead 10 points off Dover Athletic who currently occupy the final play-off position.

Gateshead will look to get back to winning ways against King's Lynn in their next game in the FA Trophy.

Gateshead have named former Hartlepool United and Darlington defender Neil Aspin as the club's new First-Team Manager.

The 50-year-old joins the Heeds on an 18-month contract and takes over from Malcolm Crosby, who was sacked last weekend after a poor run of results.

It is Aspin's first managerial post since leaving National League side Halifax Town in September.

Apsin, who was born in Gateshead, said:

This means a great deal to me. I was born here and left to pursue my football career and it's fantastic to come back.

– Neil Aspin, Gateshead FC Manager

Aspin began his managerial career with Harrogate Town half-way through the 2004-05 campaign. He remained at Wetherby Road for four-and-a-half years, guiding the club to a series of top-half finishes before being appointed Halifax boss in 2009.

Gateshead have sacked manager Malcolm Crosby after a poor run of results in the National League.

The 61-year-old only joined the club in June as a replacement Gary Mills. But after Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Halifax, the club have parted company with the former Sunderland boss.

Crosby's assistant, Gary Owers, has also left the International Stadium.

A club statement read:

Following a run of poor performances and results, Gateshead have terminated the contracts of manager Malcolm Crosby and assistant manager Gary Owers.

Chairman Richard Bennett wishes to thank both Malcolm and Gary for their time and effort at Gateshead and wishes them both the very best for the future.
