Football: Former Ipswich Town striker Dean Bowditch is being offered the chance to revive his career with Notts County.
Bowditch, who was released by Town at the end of last season, will have a trial at Meadow Lane. The young forward spent part of last season on loan at Brentford.
County boss Ian McParland told the club's website: "We monitored Dean last season, but for one reason or another we didn't manage to bring him here.
"He is looking to get himself settled and get his career up and running again and we're only too pleased to offer him the chance here.
"Dean has a lot of good attributes and perhaps in recent years he hasn't fulfilled his potential he had as a youngster.
"We'll have a good look at him and see where it takes us, but the ball is firmly in his court."
