Notts County's Alexander Reedtz confident about club's progress, future aspirations, and return to the Football League


With a chance of promotion to the Football League, Notts County is having a successful season in the National League under the guidance of a new head coach, Luke Williams, and a group of talented players who work well together.

The club's success can also be attributed to the use of data in its transfer activities, which resulted in the signing of players like Macaulay Langstaff, who has scored 32 goals within the league so far this season. While no one predicted his success, the club had high expectations for Langstaff and other summer signings.

The club's progress this season has been commendable, regardless of the promotion outcome. The coaching staff and players have worked tirelessly to make strides, and the club's fanbase has grown exponentially. The club is optimistic about the future and eagerly anticipates the next season, with high aspirations of competing in League Two.

Speaking to BBC Radio Nottingham, Notts County co-owner Alexander Reedtz said: "It can quickly go one way or another, I think, but I think there's a high chance that it will be decided very, very late in the season, so it's exciting times."

"I think the major change is a new head coach, and Luke has done a brilliant job with the players, and that is certainly a big factor in why we've done so well this year.

"We've just got a really good group of players who work well together and enjoy playing together, and there's a really good atmosphere in the team at the moment and, we have signed some really good players, some new players that we added before this season as well."

In June 2022, Notts County secured the signature of Macaulay Langstaff, the National League North top scorer and Player of the Season.

The 25-year-old forward signed a three-year contract and has been in impressive form, earning back-to-back National League Player of the Month awards in August and September. 

Langstaff's arrival at Meadow Lane followed the signing of right wing-back Tobi Adebayo-Rowling and the departure of forward Elisha Sam. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with four Championship clubs reportedly expressing interest in him during the January transfer window.

"It's well known that there's a lot of data utilized in Notts County's transfer activity." stated Alexander Reedtz.

"I don't think any of us predicted he would score this many goals this season. Probably no one did, but we had a great feeling about that signing and the other signings as well that we made in the summer.

"I'm not going to say we expected exactly this to happen. It's hard to predict, but we had high expectations and we were really confident about his ability and that he could do well in this team where there's a lot of other good players who would serve him with some good passes as well.

"But yeah, it's hard to predict a player scoring that many goals. The big goal is to get promoted and that's what we all want, everyone in the club is working towards and we're confident that we can hopefully achieve that.

"It has been a really good season so far and clearly the best season we've had since Chris and I came to the club in 2019 and we are confident about the progress 

"We're confident about the next season, no matter which league we'll be in, but we obviously hope that it will be League Two and I think the club deserves that, so hopefully we achieve it."

Williams, bolstered his squad with the acquisition of midfielder Connor Lemonheigh-Evans back in February in his bid to strengthen the squad ahead of the final run of games.

With the Notts Head Coach stressing the importance of versatility in his team and believes that Lemonheigh-Evans' ability to play in multiple roles will be a valuable asset to Notts County.

the club does feel much more professional under the reedtz ownership, both brothers have put a lot of effort into giving the club a solid base to build on. all the signings have been pretty much spot on, the loan area for keepers could be better but that is probably down to what options are out there.
