Goalkeeper Sam Slocombe has become the third new addition to Notts County’s ranks this summer.

The 31-year-old was most recently with Bristol Rovers, having joined them in July 2017, and has made just shy of 200 Football League appearances following his professional debut in September 2009.

And after completing his move on Thursday, the keeper says he is excited to be part of the rebuilding process at Meadow Lane.

“It’s a great opportunity,” said Slocombe. “It’s a fantastic club with great infrastructure and history in a league that is difficult to get out of, but it’s a great chance for Notts County to take a step forward.

“Sometimes the backward steps, despite being not very nice to go through, can help build a platform to go on to the next level and that’s what I hope I can do as a player and we can do as a club with the squad that is put together.

“I’m hungry for the start of the season after not playing as much as I’d have liked to last year – I want to make a statement personally and hopefully we do that as a club, too.

“I’ve been training with Scunthorpe and Grimsby so I’ve had a full pre-season and I’m sure everyone else coming in has had the same and will be raring to go – it’ll just be a case of gelling together as a squad.”
