League Two transfer round-up: Hartlepool United's rivals Sutton United strengthen with signing of former Crawley Town and Notts County winger

With a month to go before the League Two season gets under way, many clubs are getting down to business in the transfer market.

Tuesday’s biggest move saw newly promoted Sutton United strike a deal with Enzio Boldewijn following his release from National League side Notts County.

The 28-year-old Dutch winger had spent the past three seasons at Meadow Lane after joining for a reported six-figure fee in 2018. He went on to score 21 goals in 123 games before the club announced that they would not be renewing his contract when they published their retained list last month.

Boldewijn has previous experience in League Two with both The Magpies and Crawley Town, where current Sutton boss Matt Gray worked alongside him as assistant manager.

"He was excellent when I was at Crawley and also has done well over the last three seasons at Notts County, and he's an important addition to our attacking options," Gray told the club website.
