He probably contributed. I'm not sure that we built a league-winning team with any of the players who signed though.

You can fly up the A1. And can do that journey in 1 hour and 15.

Whereas the M62 route can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. And is pure hell.

Easy decision for him.

2h 20 mins to drive from York to Wrexham, including the nightmare M62 and the M56, so in reality it will be even more. That's at least an extra 1 hour 20 mins commute each day.

That's a big difference and many people would consider moving jobs because of it.
It is clearly about money.....he will be saving on petrol money!!!!! In all honesty it's a no brainer for him.

What puzzles me is Keates saying in the Leader that a deal was close and it was a case of ironing out a few details. It sounds to me like he was never actually that close and Gateshead have offered a package we weren't going to match.

Seems like a bit of inexperience on DK's part in terms of expectation management. As a young manager I think he'll have learnt a lesson and will probably be a bit more cautious commenting on potential signings next time.
That was one of the concerns raised when Keates took over that was he had very little transfer market experience and we might just have seen a bit of that here.

It's very possible that he was very close to signing for us, but at the last minute Gateshead contact him, he considers the easier location, he's been there before, he'll have teammates there and after talking it over with his family, he changed his mind.

A close relative of Penn's has a terminal illness. A club closer to home was always going to be a better fit for him - if he could get one. Gateshead obviously made him an offer which suited him. They train twice a week whereas we'll be training 4 times a week.
