Notts County announced the signing of former Hartlepool United winger Lewis Alessandra for an undisclosed fee The 28-year-old arrived at the Pools from Rochdale last summer and became a permanent fixture on the wing scoring nine goals in the 2016-17 season despite Pools' relegation to the National League. A graduate of Oldham Athletic's academy, the skilful forward - who scored a number of stunners during the last campaign had attracted interest from a number of clubs. However, Magpies boss Kevin Nolan has won the race for his signature and he now becomes Notts' second signing of the summer following the arrival of Lincoln’s Terry Hawkridge. Alessandra, who has signed for Notts on a two-year contract, told the club: "What happened at my former club last year was very disappointing." "I was gutted but I knew I still wanted to play league football, so when the chance arose I grabbed it with both hands." He continued to add, "I don’t think I would have come here if I didn’t think we had a shot at doing well next season." His departure to Meadow Lane comes on the same day that Hartlepool United Welsh Premier League winning-boss Craig Harrison their new manager.

Notts County are reportedly closing in on Lewis Alessandra who is set to have a medical with the club. The Magpies' may have fought off competition from Port Vale for the Hartlepool United winger, who is set to become the second signing of the summer at Meadow Lane according to The Post. Vale had reportedly shown interest in Alessandra, yet it is understood that the attacking wide-man is now set to undergo a medical on Friday after Notts successfully reached an agreement over a fee with Hartlepool. Notts owner Alan Hardy has allegedly stumped up a five-figure fee for the 28-year-old, who impressed for Pools last season despite their relegation to the National League. Although Alessandra can play upfront as a striker, he regularly featured on the right wing for Pools last season where he impressed largely with his performances in League Two. Alessandra scored nine goals and created another nine which led to significant interest, but is now expected to sign for Kevin Nolan after the Notts manager expressed a desire to add more of a goal threat. Notts have also signed Terry Hawkridge from Lincoln City earlier this month.

The former Newcastle United striker saw a penalty saved in the first half, but he went on to make amends by opening the scoring shortly after the restart, and the lead was doubled through loanee Grant's strike from outside the box. Despite Haydn Hollis's unfortunate own goal, Notts held out for all three points. Here are the highlights from the game so you can relive these moments.

Notts County have rebuilt an eight-point gap between themselves and League Two's bottom two with a 2-1 victory over Hartlepool United at Meadow Lane. The Magpies were given a chance to take the lead after 28 minutes as Lewis Hawkins handled the ball to gift the hosts a penalty, but Shola Ameobi's weak effort from the spot was pushed onto the post by Pools goalkeeper Joe Fryer. However, the veteran striker made amends for his miss just after the restart, Jorge Grant slipping him clean through on goal, and the 35-year-old bore down on goal, picked his spot and slotted a low finish underneath Fryer. Grant then went from provider to scorer in spectacular fashion as he controlled a clearance from a corner just outside the box, lined himself up and curled a wonderful shot above everyone and right into the top of the visitors' net. Hartlepool made it a nervy finish when they halved the deficit 12 minutes from time, Nathan Thomas forcing a goalline clearance from Richard Duffy, only for the ball to rebound off the unfortunate Haydn Hollis and into the Notts goal. Nonetheless, Kevin Nolan's charges succeeded in holding their opponents at bay and were able to celebrate the final whistle under a lengthy standing ovation by the Black and White Army as their unbeaten home run under the new gaffer continues.
