Collins to bring pace and energy

31 August 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan says new signing Aaron Collins will bring 'pace' and 'energy' to Meadow Lane.

The Magpies have signed the 19-year-old on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers until January.

And Sheridan is pleased to sign a player he previously worked with at Newport County.

Speaking after tonight's Checkatrade Trophy win over Hartlepool, he said: "I was the manager when we sold him to Wolves - Jason Turner (Notts chief executive) and I were involved.

"He's got a lot of potential - he's quick, he can play up front and wide right. He's got good energy.

"Wolves believe in him - he's been doing really well in their 21s. I believe he can be a really good asset to us.

"He's looking forward to working with us and hopefully playing a lot of games. He'll be involved on Saturday."

Sheridan is looking forward to Saturday's visit of Grimsby after seeing his side beat Hartlepool 2-1 in the group stage of the Checkatrade Trophy this evening.

He said: "We've won - that's the most important thing in my eyes. We now look forward to the Grimsby game - the league programme is most important - and hopefully we can get three points.

"It's a good habit, winning football matches. I made a lot of changes, as Hartlepool did, but it was nice to win the game.

"In the first half I thought at times we looked really sharp and bright."
