  1. 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.

  2. After a long season, and crashing out of the play-offs in dramatic style, the magpies now look to rebuild for the upcoming 2021/22 Season. It was made official by Notts County earlier this week that they would keep popular midfielder Michael Doyle. However, he would now be the head coach to assist Ian Burchnall for the important season ahead. The Irishman, who is also registered as a player, landed the role at the back end of last season after the dismissal of Maurice Ross. He finds himself in a positive place to take Notts County forward alongside Burchnall. The Magpies then confirmed a new two-year deal for shot-stopper Sam Slocombe. This is really good news for Notts as their number 1 had offers coming from higher up the footballing pyramid, with strong sources linking him to former assistant manager Neil Cox's strong Scunthorpe side. The shot-stopper faced 120 shots last year in the National League, saving 85 of them and with a kicking accuracy of 90 percent. You can tell he will be a massive backbone for the Magpies as they push for promotion back into the Football League. Sam Slocombe is well known for his honesty towards Notts County. In his interview, after the news was broken towards the chuffed Notts fans, he said “When I came to Notts County, the project was to get us back to the Football League. "This hasn’t happened yet so I’m grateful to the fans and to the owner, alongside the management team, for letting me carry on this project.” These comments were music to the Notts fans' ears as many thought he had played his final game in a black and white shirt. And then came another huge boost as fan favourite and hugely important Connell Rawlinson also put pen to paper on a new two-year deal for the Magpies. A real warrior who puts his head in front of anything that comes his way, Rawlinson extended his stay at Meadow Lane as he wants to take the mighty Magpies back to League Two. “To play for Notts County, for what will hopefully be four years of my career, will be an honour for me," he said. Rawlinson, who is well known for wearing his heart on his sleeve, plays on the right in a three at the back under Ian Burchnall. The Notts boss has revealed that Rawlinson will more than likely play in the centre of a back three and be part of the spine of the team. It is with huge significance that Notts got his signature as he is the sort of player that is needed in the National League. The fact that the Magpies have kept hold of such a top player has reignited hope in the Notts fans. Indeed, over a thousand season tickets have been sold within the first 24 hours of being on sale.
