Tyson joins strikeforce

Nathan handed Notts deal

1 August 2019

Following his impressive period on trial with the club, Nathan Tyson has signed a contract with Notts County.

The striker hit four goals during the Magpies' pre-season run-outs, including a hat-trick in a 5-0 victory over Ilkeston Town and joins the club for the second time in his career, having spent two months on loan at Meadow Lane in 2014.

Most recently with Wycombe, Tyson has enjoyed a long and illustrious career following his professional debut in April 2000 and has played on both sides of the River Trent as well as at the other end of Brian Clough Way.

And after signing with Notts ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, the striker is determined to make more of an impact than he did during his previous stint at Meadow Lane.

"When I first played here, I was half a player," admitted Tyson. "I was a player that had fallen out of love with the game and I was ready to retire.

"There’s a lot of unfinished business for me at Notts – I underachieved and under-performed previously. I don’t think I’m the complete player but I think I’m really good at what I do.

"I’m here to fight for a cause, which is that I believe this club should be in the Football League.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead - it'll be a tough one but we can it make easier for ourselves if we pull together."
