Opening Day: Notts Strengthen With Double Deal
Coventry City take on Notts County on the opening day of the League Two season and their opponents have moved to strengthen their squad this week with the double-signing of Nicky Hunt and Elliot Hodge.
33-year-old Hunt, known chiefly for his time as a Bolton Wanderers player where he made nearly 130 league appearances, brings vast experience to Meadow Lane, the right-back having shown during pre-season that he retains the fitness and hunger needed for a season in the 46-game slog that is League Two football.
He will also be hoping for a calmer place to play his football after enduring the crazy goings-on at Leyton Orient last season.
Hodge, a winger, is at the opposite end of his career but has also impressed manager Kevin Nolan over the past few weeks and the 21-year-old makes a return to the club where he was formerly a trainee.
