Mike Edwards wants testimonial to create buzz in Nottingham

Joe Jones

Notts County coach and defender Mike Edwards has called on the whole city of Nottingham to celebrate its footballing achievements at his testimonial against Nottingham Forest later this month.

The Magpies will take on Phillipe Montanier's Reds at Meadow Lane on Saturday 23rd July to commemorate the 36-year-old's ten years of service at the black and white side of the Trent.

"I want it to be a celebration and a buzz for Nottingham especially as it is the city of football," he told the Nottingham Post.

"I am hoping people catch the bug for it. It will be a great atmosphere, but even though it's a testimonial, both clubs will have their first teams out and will want to win it.

"My youngest son, Aidan, has his birthday on the same day and I had to ask him permission if I could play a game of football.

"He's well excited and I am too. Tickets are available now, but you can pay on the day.

"I just want to say a massive thank you to everybody involved. I'm sure it will be a fantastic occasion for the city."

He deserves a send off from our fans that can make the game, though I do think the clash with Splendor could have been avoided - yet most likely this will be one of the only dates Forest are available I assume. Not much that can be done bar those who can go, trying to make the most of it.

Take your red friends or football fans in general, it will be a good day for both Nottingham(shire) clubs. :hyper:
