The club is pleased to announce the capture of French central-defender Thierry Audel having seen him impress in a series of pre-season friendlies…
Thierry has experience of English football with Macclesfield Town, Crewe Alexandra and Lincoln City and becomes Ricardo Moniz’s 16th signing of the Summer.
“I had a few offers but honestly it wasn’t what I was expecting and Notts County was the best thing that could happen to me this Summer. The gaffer wants to go back into League One and hopefully with me adding to this group we will have a good group to go up.”
“We played well (against Scunthorpe on Friday) and the gaffer wants that and I hope that through the season we’ll improve and we’ll get better and show what we can do.”
The club’s Head Of Recruitment Guy Branston told the OS how Audel had impressed him having seen him play last season.
“Thierry is all out aggression. His standout performance for me last season was against Bristol Rovers when he stood out dominating Jermaine Easter. I liked how he dealt with a player of that pedigree and when you’ve got a player who came out of nowhere like Thierry.
“I knew I wanted to get to know this player more and I contacted him at the start of the Summer and kept in touch with him during the last few months. He’s a clever footballer and he came across as a really nice lad and I’m pleased to get him for the football club.”
“He’s an experienced player who the youngster at the club can learn from. We needed a bit of size and a bit of presence. He’ll challenge everyone at the football club being so good with the ball at his feet and he can play pretty much everywhere.”
