Butcher Released By Notts County

Last updated : 01 May 2009 By Gary Hutchinson
Butch made 108 appearances for City in two spells, scoring 12 times and in two years at Notts County has notched 20 goals from the middle of the park. He left City back in 2005 for Oldham Athletic, a move that didn't work out as he'd planned.

In 2007 he signed for Notts County from Peterborough Utd, and has turned in two solid seasons in the heart of the Pies midifeld. However Manager Ian McPartland has initiated a mass clear out of the current squad with Butcher one of the departing players.

Rumours have Butcher as a Rotherham player next season, but other sources have mentioned him as a possible target for the Imps. Rest assured if LCM hears of anything we'll bring you the news first.

Also released was former Imps striker Jamie Forrester, heavily linked with a move closer to his Lincoln home but possibly into the non league scene. Ambitious Gainsborough Trinity are thought to be pursuing Forrester to form a formidable partnership with Luke Beckett next season.
