Notts County are delighted to confirm the signing of left-back Rhys Sharpe from Derby County…




The 20-year, who can also play on the wing, has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal.

 

The Northern Ireland Under 21 international, is yet to make his professional debut for the Rams, but has gained experience on loan earlier this year with Shrewsbury Town, playing three times.

 

The Nottingham-born player is the club’s second new signing following Scot Bennett who arrived from Exeter City.

Seems promising, but how many 'young' left backs do we need to try? So we have Adams, Cranston, got rid of Newton and now Sharpe?


 


I would have thought right back and another centre back would have been more of an issue!

Perhaps Sharpe was brought in to play on the wing? Or maybe Adams or Cranston is on the way out ...


 


This one's a bit of an unknown quantity. Was sent off (second yellow card) in his last game for the Shrews and that seems to be why they aren't interested in keeping him. Seems to have been rated though from the little I can find on him.

He can play as a left sided midfielder too, he's done this for Northern Ireland.

Shrewsbury also used him as a winger I believe, however the reports I get back from their fans are not convincing because supposedly he got sent off after receiving a double yellow. That said, it sounds promising and it makes a difference to see us approaching the signings from the sense of upcoming rather than fading down the leagues rapidly.

I wonder what @super_ram can tell us since he's a Derby County fan.

I'll trust his judgement on this.

Good luck to the lad. Might have come recommended from "Big Roy"

Plus like you say, 20 year old on a 2 year that can't be that expensive. And I can some what see where Ricardo is coming from. Get them in young and hungry, and can mould around his philosophy.

hope he enjoys playing for us, i think younger players have more to prove and no doubt will want to better their careers if they can. i just hope we can cut down on being a stepping stone club and give players somewhere they can settle down. i think he will be a good signing for us and i am looking forward to seeing him play.

I hope he just comes in and does a steady job, at this level we don't need to see any flashy players but if it happened it would be exciting to see. Yet all fans want is for players to care about the club in which they represent and I do think you will get this from youngsters.

If they are keen to impress, snap them up by all means.

There seems to be a lot more optimism about the signings made so far this season.

I dont know if this is because of PON, boredom or because the club have change the way they approach potential players but I just hope it carries on. Momentum coming into the new season is important and if this Sharpe lad can do well for us, by all means it will be a good signing for us.

 

U pies!

Rhys is pretty pacey, quick with the ball and releases it well. I found him to be one of those frustrating types of players, you can see he has ability but often failed to make use of it but that may fall down to experience. We only had a brief glimpse of him here but I would say if he applied himself well, he would prove to be a half decent signing.

I am pleased that we did not go in for him, as I do not think he is ready for anything higher than league two.

Good luck this season to notts.

I have to say I agree, Big Roy may have helped here and Ricardo could do well to look at developing players.

I would not mind seeing some sold on to improve.

Regarding the latest signing, it seems positive.

He sounds confident and his interview comes across well, at least to me. I have seen some negative feedback about this, however I think he handles it well.
