Rob Burch has become Craig Short's first signing as Notts County manager after joining from Lincoln on a free transfer.

The goalkeeper will officially become a Magpies player at the start of July when his contract at Sincil Bank expires.

The 26-year-old has agreed a two-year deal having turned down the offer of a new contract at Lincoln.

Short, who replaced Steve Cotterill last week, was in need of a keeper following the departures of Kasper Schmeichel, Russell Hoult and Kevin Pilkington at the end of last season.

But the Notts County boss has made it clear that he will not make too many changes to his squad as he wants to give an opportunity to those players who earned promotion from League Two.
