He failed to make a first-team appearance for the Magpies and instead spent time on-loan at Carlisle United, Luton Town and Bradford City.

In total he made over 100 appearances in the Football League during his respective loan-spells, scoring nine goals in all competitions.

Gilliead has also represented England from Under-16s to Under-20s, making 21 appearances and scoring one goal.
