Notts County have signed Shaun Harrad on a short-term deal until January 2015.
County announced the news on their official website, whilst the striker has been training with the club and discussing a deal this week after leaving Alferton Town.
The 29-year old has previously played for the Magpies coming through the youth ranks and made 29 appearances, scoring one goal, before leaving the club after a three-year spell in 2005.
The striker has enjoyed spells at Burton Albion, Northampton Town, Bury and Alferton where he scored seven goals last season.
Harrad told BBC Radio Nottingham: “I want to earn a longer deal. It is up to me to prove I’m good enough.”
“Wherever I’ve been I’ve scored goals and I’m quietly confident of doing that here. I’d like to be judged on my performances now and not in the past.”
