Experienced defender heads to Meadow Lane
Notts County are delighted to announce the signing of 30-year-old Welshman, Richard Duffy on a one-year deal.
Duffy, who won 13 caps for Wales between 2005-2008, comes to Meadow Lane having spent four seasons at League One Port Vale, where he established himself as a first-choice centre-back making 136 appearances for the club.
He began his career at Swansea, before making a move to Premier League Portsmouth, where he spent spells on loan at Burnley, Coventry and Swansea. This was followed by a permanent move to Millwall and a three-year spell at Exeter City.
The signing of Duffy adds another player with experience of winning promotion from League Two, having finished third with Port Vale in the 2012-13 season.
In an interview with the club, the full version which will be available exclusively on Magpie Player HD later today, Duffy was relishing the opportunity at Meadow Lane:
“When they gave me a call and said would you want to come, there was only one answer really.
"I hope to bring a bit of experience and leadership."
