Durham are pleased to announce the signing of Owen Gourley this week from Ashington .
Gaz said The managers asked for us to put seven days in from Ashington and thanks to Ian Skinner the deal went through this week .
Owen is very comfortable on the ball and can be a big asset to the club and hopefully he can tighten the defence up and bring in more competition for places .
Losing Thompson and Thirlaway just before the new managers arrived and Ivison and Saunders since that was four defenders it was important to bring in quality and I believe Owen is that and welcome him to the club after speaking with him he is just keen to get on the pitch and has the same vision as the club to move up the league.
Owen will be available on Saturday for selection.
