Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has suggested that Jon Stead could go on to play until the age of 40 and beyond.
The veteran striker impressed for the Magpies in the 1-1 draw against Stevenage at the weekend, massively influencing the team when going forward.
"I think there's a lot of things said about Jon Stead because he is 34 but he doesn't train like he's 34," Nolan is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.
"He trains every day. He trains with the 19 and 20 year olds and he's never too far behind on all the distances and the speed drills.
"People don't finish at 34 or 33 or 35 no more. They're finishing at 37, 38 and 39 even 40.
"For me he's a top, top pro and that's the reason why he can play and he can do 90 minutes. He's an absolute delight to work with and he's been fantastic.
"He probably hasn't had the goals or got the goals he probably deserved but it's what he's doing for the team. Everyone could see (at Broadhall Way) he's one of our top players on the pitch."
