Richard Peniket has joined former boss Neil Aspin at Gateshead after rejecting a new contract at Halifax.

Peniket has joined the fellow National League outfit on a one-year deal to link up with Aspin, who signed him for Halifax in 2014.

Peniket sustained a cruciate ligament injury in March 2015 but came back to help Town win the FA Trophy in 2016 and earn promotion under Billy Heath this season.
