Magpies Land Langstaff

Notts County have completed the signing of Gateshead striker Macaulay Langstaff who finished last season as the National League North top goalscorer as the Tynesiders triumphed to take the title upon receiving promotion to the National League.

Langstaff is 25 and netted 32 goals with 14 assists for Gateshead after joining the club for a second spell, from York City in 2020.

The Stockton-on-Tees born striker previously had loan spells at Billingham Synthonia and Blyth Spartans, the club who Notts signed winger Cal Roberts from two years ago.

On signing the forward who’ll likely fill the void which could be left by Kyle Wootton who’s been eyeing up football league interest, and that of the exiting Elisha Sam who departs after having his contract mutually terminated, the clubs Directors stated on Langstaff “His ability to attack spaces behind opposition defences creates chances from nothing and he has the poise and finishing technique to score goals at any level.

“He joins us after an incredible season at Gateshead and we’re delighted to have him on board for the next three years.”

Langstaff becomes the second player to join the Magpies since the departure of Head Coach Ian Burchnall and his assistant Michael Doyle to Forest Green Rovers. On Monday right sided defender Tobi Adebayo-Rowling joined from Ebbsfleet United.
