Notts County have signed defensive pair Carl Regan and Tom Williams on five-month deals.
Williams, 32, left Walsall in June 2011 and made only one appearance last season, for Kettering in August.
"They have had a long pre-season with us and have signed on six-month contracts purely because of finances," manager Keith Curle told BBC Sport.
"But if more money becomes available and if they perform there is an opportunity to extend that for a minimum of a season.
"Tommy has not been associated with a football club for a while now but he has showed he is getting back to where he was a couple of years ago and some of the Notts fans will already know Carl."
"We might need or two more players," Curle added.
"Lloyd did exceptionally well. He is still out of contract - both him and Daniel we have spoken too.
"At the minute, it is a case of juggling the finances to see what other players we can bring in and prioritising the positions."
