Brad Brooking admitted that he has left one big club to join another following his arrival at Ashington from Whitley Bay.

The 26-year-old made his first appearance in Ashington colours on Saturday after signing.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Ashington,” he said.

“I wasn’t getting a game at Hillheads so as soon as I heard the Colliers were interested, I jumped at the chance of joining a big club like Ashington from another big club in Whitley Bay.

“It was a no brainer really.”

He added: “I trained on Thursday and I didn’t think I did too badly on my debut.

“It was my first game for over a month and I was a bit rusty, but it was just nice to get back into the swing of things.

“Hopefully I can kick on from here.”
