Notts County have today brought in ex-Wales defender Richard Duffy on a one-year deal, the club’s official website reports.
Duffy will no doubt bring qualities to Meadow Lane, qualities that saw the 31-year-old win 13 caps for his country, Wales.
Duffy joins the Magpies after being an integral role of Port Vale’s team for the last four years, making 136 appearances for the club, only making the scoresheet once.
County will be Duffy’s sixth permanent club, with previous spells at the likes of Swansea and Portsmouth in his arsenal, Duffy has experience playing for top teams, and could prove to be a shrewd signing for the club.
Duffy becomes County’s fourth signing of the summer, following Adam Collin, Alex Rodman and Matt Tootle through the door at Meadow Lane, and if these signings are anything to go by it could be a prosperous season for the Magpies, to put right the wrongs of last season under Ricardo Moniz and Jamie Fullarton.
It will be interesting to see how John Sheridan will adapt to the club, the 51-year old has a proven track record showing he can get a team out of League Two, as he guided Chesterfield out of the basement of the Football League.
So.. Notts County fans, what do you think of your teams chances this season? Another good signing, or is a different calibre of player what the club needs? Leave thoughts and comments below!
