Chelsea goalkeeper Eddie Beach will spend the remainder of the season on loan at National League side Gateshead.

Beach featured regularly for our Under-21s during the first half of the campaign – and was also on the substitutes’ bench for our first team Premier League fixtures against Luton Town and Brentford.

The 20-year-old joined the Blues from Southampton in the summer of 2023 and spent time on loan last season at National League South club Chelmsford City.

Gateshead currently sit 8th in the National League, just a point outside the play-off positions.

Good luck, Eddie!
