  • Manager; Ian Burchnall

    Ian David Burchnall was born February 11th, 1983 in Leicester.

    ianburchnall.jpgNotts County appointed Burchnall as the head-coach in March 2021, after spending several years' gaining experience working overseas in Scandinavia.

    Having started his managerial career within their highest leagues, and also gaining credibility as one of football's most talented young trainers. Due to having a history in youth mentoring, Burchnall's very first senior role came as Brian Deane's aide at Norwegian side Sarpsborg in 2012.

    He then took the same task at Viking FK, leading the way for him to become their manager in 2017. Off-field issues caused his departure. 

    Much to the dissatisfaction of Viking's fans, yet he was quickly invited to relocate across the Swedish boundary to replace now-Brighton manager Graham Potter at Ostersund FK.

    Potter had actually led the club on a speedy increase via the Swedish football system, finishing in the club's exceptional qualification for the Europa League, and also Burchnall, who had previously worked with Potter whilst training university football in Leeds, was selected as the man to fill his boots.

    Regardless of the club's choice to sell various essential first-team members, Burchnall led Ostersund to a sixth-place, one point and an area below the document established by Potter the previous year.

    His 2nd season started highly before off-field issues arose once more, at some point leading Burchnall to leave his head coach post last summer season to pursue his next opportunity in the UK.

    In his first season at Meadow Lane, Burchnall finished 5th in the National League - earning the magpies a place within the play-offs.

    Notts managed to beat Chesterfield in their play-off eliminator clash, to which Burchnall's side then faced Torquay United in a game that finished 2-2 at the end of normal time. The Gulls won the game in extra time, dashing the hopes for a return to the Football League.
