ST MIRREN have signed foward James Marwood on a one-year contract.

The 24-year-old scored 15 goals last season as Gateshead reached the Conference Premier play-off final at Wembley, only to lose out to Cambridge United.

A product of the Newcastle United youth academy, Marwood is new manager Tommy Craig's second signing of the summer, following the capture of goalkeeper Mark Ridgers.

"The enthusiasm and knowledge Tommy Craig has for the game convinced me that this was where I wanted to progress my career," said Marwood.
