  4. Dear Members/Visitors, As you may have noticed recently our website has proudly opened a store which is focusing on selling quality Notts County prints. We have a wide range already from legends, heroes and icons, to current players and artistic designs. The prints have been received very well and the stock pile brought to cover until the New Year is moving nicely, I would just like to draw every bodies attention to the latest releases and of course all the various prints we have to offer. All single prints cost £15 and offer free UK delivery, we also offer a grouped purchase for Jimmy Sirrel and Jack Wheeler legend prints which you can snap up whilst stocks last at £25 for the pair. All prints are A3 size, however at some point we may offer alternatives sizes. With Christmas coming up the PON store has been stocked piled with each print to save time on the delivery, so there are a wide range of prints already available despite these being new.

Orders are completed with payment via PayPal. You do not require a PayPal account as the service allows for the fees to be paid via credit or debit cards. To guarantee Christmas delivery all orders must be made by the 17th of December (UK deliveries). I will offer fans overseas a chance to make a purchase, however this comes at an additional cost for the shipping and members must message me directly via webmaster@prideofnottingham.co.uk or via PM here.

    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.

    Hardy taking break from social media

    https://www.nottscountyfc.co.uk/news/2018/november/alan-manager-update-191118/ I am pleased to say I have now shortlisted three strong candidates to attend second interviews for the vacant manager’s position at Meadow Lane. All three made excellent first impressions, demonstrating extensive experience and huge enthusiasm for the role. I look forward to meeting them all again to discuss things in more detail and hope to make an appointment later this week. On a separate note, those of you who use Twitter will know I have decided to take a break from the platform. I have never shied away from criticism or debate in my time as owner and chairman and fully understand supporters’ current frustration and anger, particularly following Saturday’s unacceptable performance against Cheltenham Town. Unfortunately, however, the level of personal abuse I am beginning to receive on Twitter means the positives of engaging via that platform are now far outweighed by the negatives. I’m fully aware that most of the mindless negativity directed towards me comes from so-called ‘trolls’ and supporters of rival clubs looking for a bite but it’s not healthy for me – or my family – to see a constant stream of such messages. At a time when I need clear, balanced judgment more than ever, it is the right decision to remove myself from the firing line. I sympathise with the genuine Notts supporters who enjoy having constructive dialogue with their chairman but can assure them that I will still be communicating regularly via official club channels to ensure they are kept informed. Thank you for your continued support. Alan
