Craig Baxter is a defensively strong and composed right back who brings a wealth of experience of playing higher up in leagues to the Dunston back line. Craig has a proven track record of success, a key player for The Mariners over a five-season spell and making 188 appearances and played an integral role in the Gateshead side which reached the National League playoff final at Wembley Stadium in the 2013/14 season.

Described as rock solid at the back and strong going forward, Baxter’s signing was a major coup for Dunston UTS FC, and Craig’s addition was obvious, with the full back picking up the 2021/22 managers player of the season, players player of the season and committee’s player of the season.
