Edwards said: “There are only two or three League Two clubs I know of who like to get the ball down and think about the game a bit differently - the angles, overloads, playing out from the goalkeeper. That’s why I think Notts is a brilliant fit for me.

“I know the size of the club is massive but the main reason I want to be here is the playing philosophy.

“When you hear a coach outline that to you, you’re totally taken by it and it’s something you want to be part of, so I’m very thankful to Stuart Maynard and the club for wanting to bring me in on this part of the club’s journey.

“I can play as an eight, making runs into the box and creating chances in dangerous areas, but my favourite position is a bit deeper where I can get the ball from the central defenders, try to play through the lines and supply the dangerous players – and I know Notts have a few of them!

“When you join a new club It’s always nice to be there from day one.

“I’ve had a few moves where I’ve arrived halfway through pre-season and missed out on some of the work, but this time I’ll be able to take on board all the information.

“I feel really good. I’ve been training with a team in Sweden a few times a week and have had some time off, so I’m ready to go.

“I can’t wait to get cracking in front of a big, passionate crowd that’s going to get behind the team.

“It’s everything you want as a player and I’m fully focused on giving everything to help the club win as many matches as we can.”
