Matt Tootle hails special bond with Notts County fanbase

Joe Jones

Matt Tootle has praised the Notts County fanbase and believes he has a special bond with the supporters.

The full-back is one of the team's most liked players due to his impressive performances - complete with the odd goal - and his eccentric, likeable nature, which includes the 'slug' goal celebration.

Tootle says he is relishing the relationship with the fans and hopes he can reward their backing by helping Notts to promotion.

“I think that they think I am one of them,” he told the Nottingham Post. “They can see that I like having a laugh and I bring that onto the pitch a little bit.

“Hopefully they like me because I am a good player and they see how much I try, which is the most important thing.

“I enjoy the relationship I have with them and they said to me when I took a throw in at the Forest Green game that they wanted to see the slug, so I gave it to them. That’s a good relationship isn’t it?

“I do sense a bond with them. At Crewe I had a good relationship with the fans there too. At Shrewsbury I didn’t ever feel that I had any bond and it didn’t feel like it was going to start no matter what I did.

“I am just glad they have taken to me here and hopefully I can repay them on the pitch.”
