16/10/2009, by Jeff Bowron
Gateshead have completed their second loan signing of the week with attacking Scunthorpe United left sided player Peter Winn added to the squad to face Chester City on Saturday.

The 20 year old came off the bench for the last three games of Scunthorpe's Championship campaign in 2007/8, but did not feature for the Iron last season.

Winn, born in Grimsby, instead learnt his trade in the reserves while playing nine games on loan at Northwich Victoria and another three at Barrow.

A regular scorer for the Iron's second string Winn impressed the watching Derek Bell while scoring in a 4-2 defeat it Lincoln City reserves in midweek.

"Winn is highly rated at Scunthorpe and appears to be a player with a bright future in the game," said Gateshead manager Ian Bogie.

"His one month signing will further strengthen the squad and, like Daryl Clare, he is available to play in the FA Cup."
