New goalkeeper Scott Loach is excited for the future now he’s back home in Nottingham…
The Nottingham-born shot-stopper arrived on Wednesday, signing a two-year deal after being released from Rotherham United.
Now the 27-year-old has set his sights on challenging current number one goalkeeper Roy Carroll.
Loach didn’t have to wait too long for his Notts debut either, playing the full 90-minutes in the 4-1 away win against Carlton later that evening.
Loach spoke to Magpie Player: “I was in contact with Pilks (Kevin Pilkington) throughout the season, obviously I was at Rotherham last season, but it didn’t work out and it was a no-brainer for me to come here.
“I just want to get back into it and being a Nottingham boy it’s a great move for me.
“There’s no better place to come, be back home and learn off two great goalkeepers in Pilks and Roy (Carroll).
“I’m massively looking forward to the challenge.
“This club really appeals to me and I want to be here. I want to challenge and get in that spot, but I will need to work hard and that work starts now.
“I know a few lads in the squad, there’s a great buzz around here with the signings. It’s a massive club, some say a sleeping giant and there’s no reason why we can’t do good things here this season.”
