Faces of PON: Notts County lock horns with 2015-16 Premier League champions Leicester City


Another weekend, another pre-season friendly, another seven notches on the calendar, another week closer to the start of the 2018-19 season.

On Saturday, Notts County had the privilege of facing none other than the team that defied odds of 5,000-1 to win the Premier League title in undoubtedly the biggest fairy tale in sporting history, ever.

Although Leicester City have not been able to mount another title challenge since the magical 2015-16, they nonetheless enjoyed a superb Champions League run in 2016-17 and finished in the top half of the table last time out.

But obviously none of that compares to the opportunity of facing the oldest professional Football League club in the world at the magical Meadow Lane, does it? ;)

And the Magpies got off to a great start through Lewis Alessandra, though goals from Wes Morgan, Hamza Choudhury, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani saw the Foxes eventually run out 4-1 winners.

Pride of Nottingham was at the San Sirrel for the game and took plenty of photos of the Black and White Army. See if you're among the Faces of PON!
