Newly-promoted side Sutton United have signed former Notts County winger Enzio Boldewijn, according to Football League World.

The Dutchman made 121 appearances for Notts between 2018 and 2021, helping the Magpies to successive National League playoff campaigns under Neal Ardley and Ian Burchnall.

Between his first season at Meadow Lane and his time at Crawley Town, he amassed 127 SkyBet League Two appearances, and will bring key experience to a side making its EFL debut in August.

Boldewijn is Matt Gray’s fifth signing of a busy window so far, having already brought in Joe Kizzi (Bromley), Ricky Korboa (Northampton), Donovan Wilson (loan from Bath City made permanent) and Alistair Smith (Altrincham).

He made the 2019/20 Team of the Season in Notts’ first season in the National League, and scored 21 goals for the club in his three seasons on Trentside.

His party trick was to cut in from the left, before firing into the far corner. Indeed, some of his best goals for Notts were scored that way, with memorable strikes coming against Barnet, Woking (x2) and Chesterfield.

Notts have made two signings so far this window, with Kyle Cameron and Frank Vincent coming in from Torquay United and AFC Bournemouth respectively.

Ian Burchnall may not be able to rely on Boldewijn’s contributions for 2021-22, but his opposite number, Cal Roberts, has returned from a recurring injury aggravated against Hartlepool United to add a real boost to the Magpies fans’ hopes, and the squad’s threat, ahead of their third season in the National League.
