Australian Test batsman Damien Martyn has joined English county club Nottinghamshire for the 2004 season.

Martyn will be the club's second overseas player, joining Test teammate Stuart MacGill, but his move to Trent Bridge must first be cleared by Cricket Australia.

"Trent Bridge is one of the world's great cricket grounds and I have discussed with both Stuart MacGill and Mick Newell the plans which Notts have for the coming season," Martyn said on the club's website.

"Stuart has spoken very highly of the club and its facilities and says they're a great bunch of lads to play with.

"Having another Aussie in the side will help me settle in especially as he is a good friend of mine.

"But I'm also looking forward to linking up again with Jason Gallian, who I played with for a couple of years for the Australia Under-19s.

"I've got good memories of my brief spell in county cricket with Yorkshire last year and I'm looking forward to a winning season at Trent Bridge."

Martyn, 32, has played 39 Tests for Australia at an average of 45.86, but struggled in this summer's series against India.

After playing a major role in Australia's World Cup triumph last year, he had a brief spell with Yorkshire, scoring over 300 runs in three innings, including a top score of 238.

Newell, Notts director of cricket, was delighted with signing Martyn.
