Blackpool offload striker Burgess to Notts County
Notts County boss Craig Short has completed the double signing of Blackpool striker Ben Burgess and former Doncaster Rovers midfielder John Spicer. Burgess told the club's official website: "I'm really excited, I think I've only played here once, which was about 10 years ago.
"It's a great stadium, the pitch looks really good, obviously I'm happy with everything and I just can't wait."
Spicer added: "I said I didn't want to play for a team that was going to be happy sitting in mid-table and I was assured that was certainly not the case. We want to get to the Championship as soon as possible, which is what I aim to do."
