Notts County re-sign Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben Hall on loan

Joe Jones

Notts County have announced the return of Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben Hall on loan for the entirety of the 2018-19 season.

The Northern Ireland Under-21 international impressed at Meadow Lane last term in a six-month loan spell which yielded 11 appearances.

"I can't wait to come back. My time at Notts so far has been an amazing experience," Hall told the Notts website. "Meadow Lane is definitely the best place for me right now.

"I feel like I improved so much during my loan last season and I'm really pleased the gaffer [Kevin Nolan] and his staff wanted me to come back."

Magpies boss Kevin Nolan added: “Ben was magnificent for us when called upon last season. He played a very important part and we’re thrilled to have him back with us.

“He, along with Pierce Bird, will push Richard Duffy and Shaun Brisley all the way and will really benefit from having a full pre-season with us.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brighton for once again trusting us with his development and we really look forward to helping him improve further.”

I feel more confident about the defence now that Ben Hall has signed on for the season, I just don't know what to make of this rumour that Kevin Nolan aims to play 3 CB's at the back.

Surely 4-4-2 is more worth sticking with?
