'Gary MacKenzie' arrives at Meadow Lane on a 28-day loan


Notts County first team manager Jamie Fullarton has completed the signing of Gary MacKenzie on loan, the deal is initially for twenty-eight days.

The 30-year-old Doncaster Rovers defender has enjoyed spells with more recently Bradford City, Blackpool and MK Dons.

The Magpies’ are looking to further shore up their defensive options with this arrival after recently managing to keep a clean sheet against Luton Town last Saturday.

Speaking to the club for the first time, Gary said “I’ve got plenty of experience in the league above but it should work out for everybody. If I can benefit Notts County and myself then everyone is happy.”

“My job is to organise and keep clean sheets in the defence but I also like to play football – it makes the game more enjoyable. But the important thing for me is to concede fewer goals.”

Jamie Fullarton was quick to speak about his connection with MacKenzie by saying “Gary is a player I’ve known form a number of years from his time with Rangers and Dundee. You find yourself tracking players throughout the years and how they can complement your setup at the time.”

“Obviously I’m delighted to bring him in because I feel he offers us something different, he’s a true leader who will help develop our young defenders in the first team and make a big contribution.”

The Magpies’ are also said to be looking at former Rams defender Miles Addison and ex-Plymouth winger Jason Banton who are said to be training with the club.

He wasn't half bad at MK Dons, his move to Blackpool raised eyebrows but he should be good for this division.

MK Dons fans wanted to keep him. It will take a few games for him to settle, if he does well extend nice and early. I cannot believe fans are whining about the squad size because we signed one player. Free tansfers are still open correct?

My first thoughts would be summed up with its a gamble.

28 days seems a bit pointless, will it give us time to see him at his best? It sounds like he has been a part player for Donny and that might mean he needs time. I hope he sorts the back out as if he can it will be a good move.
