New signing Balint Bajner spoke to the media on Thursday about how he was looking forward to playing for the World’s Oldest Football League Club.
Bajner signed for Notts County from Ipswich Town in midweek, in time to make his debut in the Sky Bet League 1 game at Doncaster Rovers, when he came on as a 61st minute substitute.
Speaking of his move to Meadow Lane, the 24-year-old said: “First of all I have to say thank you to Ipswich and to Notts County as well. They looked at me and tried to get me and I was really happy because I know it’s one of the oldest clubs, a great club and I think the league is also good, so yeah I was happy to come here.
“We will see the next three or four months until the end of the season what is going on, but I’ll try to give my best for the club, for the team and I hope at the end it will be good for everybody.
“I’m really happy that I can play for the oldest club in the world, football comes from here and I really like everything, alright maybe the weather is not the best, but all the other things I like, the people are really positive, I like the attitude, everything.”
Bajner’s arrival has prompted a wave of social media activity from his native Hungary and whilst the big striker didn’t want to dwell on that, preferring to do his talking on the pitch, he did admit that building a relationship with the Notts County supporters was a priority.
“That’s the first thing because the football and everything that we do is for the fans, without fans there’s no football, that’s my thinking. I try to be good for the team, for the club, but then also play for the fans.”
