    Pride of Nottingham Prints

    Alternative designs include Notts iconic themed designs, such a magpies nearby a broken wheelbarrow. Again all prints cost £15 each, offer free UK delivery and are on limited stock until the New Year. Wheelbarrow Magpies: "One for sorrow, two for joy", the old adage goes when referring to the noble magpie, one of the most recognisable and iconic birds of Britain. As well as being a symbol of the British countryside, the magpie is also synonimous with Notts County, itself a noble club boasting rich tradition and a fixture in the Football League. Another icon specific to Notts is the broken wheelbarrow, a quirky and whimsical item borne out of the Black and White Army changing the words of "On Top Of Old Smokey" as sang by the deep Shropshire-accented Shrewsbury Town fans back in 1990. I Had A Wheelbarrow: It's been nearly 30 years since the iconic "I Had a Wheelbarrow" chant was first sung at Shrewsbury Town’s Gay Meadow on April 17th 1990. The Shrews fans began to sing a chant to the tune of "On Top Of Old Smokey", however Notts supporters behind the goal interrupted the Shropshire accent into "I Had A Wheelbarrow, The Wheel Fell Off". Minutes later, Notts scored twice through Tommy Johnson and Kevin Bartlett. Notts remained unbeaten until the end of the season and reached Wembley. The Wheelbarrow Song was sung under the Twin Towers as Notts beat Tranmere and stuck with the fan base all the way until today. Our Club, Our Passion: Supporting a football team is not a hobby. It's not a past time. It's a lifelong commitment. And supporting Notts County, the world's oldest Football League club, is part of a tradition which goes back more than 150 years. Written by lifelong Notts fan and Pride of Nottingham owner Chris Buckley, "Our Pride, Our Passion" is the defining poem for all proud Magpies, wherever they may be in the world. We challenge any Notts fan not to feel passion and emotion coursing through their veins when it comes to the words of this poem, lovingly reproduced on this print alongside a pair of magpies - "two for joy". Meadow Lane: Built in 1910, Meadow Lane is the home of Notts County. Prior to this year, the Magpies shared Trent Bridge with Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club until the Football League asked Notts to find their own place. And so Meadow Lane was built, the spiritual home of the Black & White Army for more than 100 years, where fans have celebrated, cried and vented their anger for generation after generation. The "San Sirrel", as it's also known, has had the pleasure of hosting some wonderful players over the years like Tommy Lawton, Les Bradd and Lee Hughes among others. More designs and prints are being released weekly, stock will remain limited as mentioned so ensure you order ASAP to avoid disappointment.

    Pride of Nottingham Prints

    Despite the woeful 2018-19 League Two season, Pride of Nottingham wanted to be different and to focus on every bodies favourite current player. The current squad prints include Ross Fitzsimons, Dan Jones, Jamie Turley, Matt Tootle, David Vaughan, Elliott Hewitt, Enzio Boldewijn, Lewis Alessandra, Kane Hemmings and Jon Stead. In the coming weeks we will also be releasing Kristian Dennis. Many of these prints have been made as per request and we pride ourselves on being different, focusing on the current players may not win everyone over but at the same time we do have our own personal favourite. No other players will be drawn after, and requests are closed for the remainder of the season. Once again all prints cost £15, we do not offer any grouped purchases with the current player prints. The style is a full body portrait of the players listed above, framed nicely within Notts themed colours and printed using high quality A3 paper. Head over to the store where you can pick up several Notts County theme prints of current players! Get on it quick and you could even grab yourself one of the signed ones, while stocks last!
