Notts county update — can they chase for promotion?

Notts County have had an excellent start to the season with an unbeaten start from the opening seven matches, with four wins and three draws.

From a perfect performance against Barnet, where the Magpies came out on top by putting five past the bees who didn’t manage to find the back of the net.

Semi-new Magpie boss Ian Burchnall has become a massive fan favourite by taking ‘County’ to the semi-finals of the national League play-offs last season and leading Notts County to a near - perfect start so far! 

The flying high Magpies didn’t have it entirely their way in the first home match of the season after falling behind early in the game due to miscommunication between Sam Slocombe and Connell Rawlinson.

Later on, in the match, the big man’ Kyle Wootton scored a brilliant diving header to find the back of the net.

With the match ending one a piece, the Magpie fans felt they should have taken all three points.

5 in 7 

In nearly all matches for Notts County this season, the six - foot one forward has found the back of the net.

Kyle Wootton originally joined Notts County on loan from Scunthorpe United back in 2019 before making It a permanent move in 2020 for a small fee of £60,000.

Every season playing in the famous black and white jersey, Kyle Wootton has finished as the top goal scorer for the club. 

What does the future hold for Notts County?

With the Notts County owners Christoffer and Alexander Reedtz being so honest, smart and incredibly responsible, the future does look good for the famous Notts County. 

Since the arrival of the new owners, the club has been well run and has had a massive turn around since the last owner, Alan Hardy, who put the Nottingham side up for sale after posting a picture of his genitalia on Twitter.

The Reedtz brothers have set a 5-year plan out and the Magpies have one goal this year, promotion.

It's early days, but unlike previous seasons we have something to build on - rather than improve from. Yes, the performances at times could be better, I keep saying this will come in time. What I will add is, how much brighter we look. The football is heaps better compared to previous managers.

Ian Burchnall also makes use of changes and tactics in-game, which is refreshing not to wait for the 70th mark for a change.

As it is going for a win, instead of defending for a draw [which tended to lead to defeats more than that].

i think we are only seeing the start of something special, once we hit or true potential, i think the form will only build. turning some of these away games into wins would help massively, but i am impressed so far.

starting a season off well, its something we have needed for awhile really.

kyle wootton could hit 20+ goals by himself if he continues, he might even get his first hattrick.

to say some was worried and panicked about where the goals would come from, i think we have proved already we have goals. its cutting out the ones we concede that will eventually stop.
