Utility man pens two-year deal Notts County have today announced the signing of utility man Jude Stirling on a two-year contract following his release by Milton Keynes Dons. Although primarily a defender, Stirling can play across the park and is famed for his deadly long throw. He has worked with Notts boss Martin Allen twice before, at Milton Keynes and Barnet. Stirling has spent much of his career playing in the Southern non-league scene, for clubs such as Stevenage, Dover and Grays Athletic after starting his career at Luton Town. He has also had spells at Peterborough United and Lincoln City.
