Defender John Nutter says he is looking forward to playing for Lincoln City in the Blue Square Bet Premier after four seasons at Gillingham.

Nutter joined the Imps on a two-year deal after his release by the Gills.

"I did enjoy my time there but it felt like it was time for a new challenge," he told BBC Lincolnshire.

"That decision was taken for me I suppose, but I think it will benefit me to have a fresh start, play in front of new people and show what I can do."

Nutter, who played more than 100 matches in the conference for Wycombe, Aldershot and Stevenage prior to his spell at Gillingham, added: "I feel I'm better than this level but I've got to show that and we have to show that as a team.

"There's certainly a challenge to be had here. I'm 29, a good age to come here and hopefully I can play my best two or three years of football."
