Notts County's 18 new signings head to Stevenage for opener

7 August 2015

It's been a busy summer at Meadow Lane with Ricardo Moniz adding 18 new faces to his Notts County squad, and they go to Teddy Sheringham's Stevenage in Match Round 1.

The Dutchman saw his side relegated to Sky Bet League 2 last term, and he has made wholesale changes to his team as he embarks on his first full season as a manager in English football.

A high-profile strike duo, containing both experience and youth, could play a big part in determining the success of the Magpies this term, with 32-year-old Jon Stead arriving from Bradford City and Adam Campbell – a prolific scorer while coming through the Newcastle United ranks – joining the club.

At the other end of the pitch, goalkeeper Scott Loach will no doubt be a commanding presence, but perhaps most intriguing of all the additions are the overseas imports made by Moniz.

A trio of Moniz's fellow countrymen have joined him in Nottingham, along with two Belgians, a Slovenian and a Togolese international.

They will be thrown straight in at the deep end, with a tricky opener at Stevenage this weekend. It's been a period of change at the Lamex Stadium too, with Graham Westley departing following Boro's defeat in the Play-Offs last time around, and Teddy Sheringham stepping in.

It is the former England ace's first managerial role and he has welcomed in some new faces himself, including striker Brett Williams following two prolific seasons with Aldershot in the Conference.

Stevenage will no doubt hold ambitions of another season towards the top end of the table, and Notts County's new men will be given a stern test on Saturday afternoon.
