Palmer Next In At Lane

They’re coming in thick and fast now as Head Coach Ian Burchnall, the Reedtz brothers and co ramp up their transfer dealings with yet another new signing for Notts County announced today.

The latest is 26-year-old former Burton Albion midfielder Matt Palmer who signs from Swindon Town on a two year deal having played the majority of last season in League One.

Derby born Palmer started his career at Burton and played over 150 games for the Brewers before moving to Rotherham United and then Swindon.

Palmer was loaned out last season to Wigan Athletic and joins Notts County on a two year deal with Burchnall stating “We’re looking at him playing a similar role to Jake Reeves towards the end of last season. He could play deep, but we see him more as a box-to-box midfielder who can contribute to the attacking side of the game.”

“Matt’s got a great eye for a forward pass and will also contribute a lot when we’re looking to retain possession as he’s really comfortable with the ball and very competent technically.”

Palmer joins the likes of Ed Francis and Aaron Nemane who joined yesterday, as well as earlier captures this summer of Kyle Cameron, Joel Taylor and Frank Vincent.

When asked whether they’ll be any more additions to the squad, Ian Burchnall stated “We have the capacity to strengthen further in the midfield area should we wish to.”

He followed “We’ve still got Lamine Kaba Sherif, William Hondermarck and Kyle Bennett on trial and they’re all showing promise.”

Notts County face AFC Telford United this Saturday at the New Bucks Head where some of the few new faces the club have signed, will likely be on show in friendly action against the National League North side.
