Players released by Notts in the summer have their sights set on new Clubs, with players going to Burton Albion, Lincoln City, Torquay United and others are thought to be wanted by a number of League Clubs.

Ex-County player and striker Steve Scoffham appeared for Burton Albion over the weekend, coming of the bench in Burtonís 5-1 defeat to Birmingham City. And a number of former Magpies players are beginning to battle it out for new deals at other clubs.

Scoffham came of the bench to link up with former Magpie Shaun Harrad in attack and immediately made an impression on Burtonís Player/Manager Nigel Clough with a surging run, which set up Nigel Clough for a shot, which was blocked and Andy Ducros firing the rebound over the bar.

Burtonís official Website described Shaun Harrad and Steve Scoffham as being commended for eye-catching performances.

Burton have also shown interest in former Magpie Lewis McMahon and are keen to bring him in for a trial, Reports Magpie World, and he is also attracting interest from one or two League Clubs.

While Lee Cooks is to join the Imps for pre-season training this week, Reports Lincoln Cityís official website. The former Bradford City Midfielder spent the second half of last season on loan with us, and was even offered a contract by our former boss Gudjon Thordarson, but following the Icelanderís departure, Crooks decided to pursue other options.

Shaun Marshall is having a trial with Torquay United. He was last seasonís back up to Kevin Pilkington and made just two appearances and is currently one of three goalkeepers on trial at Torquay. And has attracted the interest of a number of other League Two sides.

Other players that left in the summer and are attracting interest from Football League Clubs are Rob Ullathorne, Chibuzor Chilaka and Chris Palmer. (Any of these players join your club we would love for you to let us know on the message board)

Neo Sissoko has returned to France after only making a handful of appearances since signing for us in January, but was released in the summer and is now aiming to sign with a French Club.

Brian OíCallaghan could make his Champions League appearance for Cork City on Wednesday as they take on Apollon FC in the First Round Qualifier, after signing for the Irish Premier League Champions on a six-month contract last week.
