  1. Notts have met Yeovil 18 times in their history. Notts: 6 Draw: 4 Yeovil: 8 Notts have only ever won once at Huish Park and that was in March 2005 (that was the first time Notts had played Yeovil at Huish Park). Since then Notts’ record away at The Glovers has been: Played 7, Won 0, Drew 3, Lost 4. In those 7 games, Notts have only ever taken the lead in one. Stats Notts have won only 1 of their last 16 games and are currently on a 6-game winless run. Yeovil have won only 2 of their last 19 games and have only won once this season (a 2-0 win over Stevenage). Befo
  2. Notts County have signed midfielder Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain, the brother of Liverpool and England player Alex, on a two-year deal from Portsmouth. The 20-year-old becomes a Magpies player when his Fratton Park contract expires at the end of this month. Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be fit for the next couple of weeks as he is recovering from a broken leg sustained towards the end of last season. “When I played in the FA Cup here last season, I caught the eye of the manager,” he told the official Notts site. “It just went from there really. “Notts got in touch with my sid
  3. Notts County will take on Doncaster Rovers, Grimsby Town and Newcastle United's academy side in the group stage of the EFL Trophy. The Magpies have been placed in Group G of the competition’s Northern section. The 48 EFL clubs have been placed into pre-determined groups, with consideration given to ensure travel time is minimised for supporters and recovery time is maximised for players. Players from EFL clubs who are out on loan in the National League and below are now eligible to feature in the competition. Meanwhile, invited teams have been restricted to fielding two pla
  4. From BBC Sport: Juventus have revealed their third-kit design for the 2018-19 season - made entirely from recycled ocean plastic. Adidas designer Francesca Venturini, who created the dark grey shirt in partnership with Parley for the Oceans, said the jersey has "eco-innovation and longevity at its very heart". The Serie A champions are the latest high-profile club to support the campaign to cut plastic pollution. Manchester United and Real Madrid have also worn Parley Ocean Plastic kits. Do you think this is a good idea? Should Notts County head down this directi
  5. Notts County played their first home game of the 2018-19 programme at the weekend as they hosted Derby County in a pre-season friendly. Magpies boss Kevin Nolan fielded a strong starting XI against the Rams, who have England and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard on board for his first job in management. Things did not go quite to plan for Notts, as teenager Luke Thomas scored twice to send the Rams into a 2-0 half-time lead. Former Notts loanee Mason Bennett and Tom Huddlestone were also on target for the visitors after the break. Kane Hemmings netted a consolation for the Magpi
  6. Jon Stead has described Notts County's signing of David Vaughan as a “coup”. The 35-year-old was snapped up by the Magpies following his departure from Nottingham Forest at the end of last season. “It’s a coup isn’t it?” Stead told the Nottingham Post. “He’s been at the top level and the way he carries himself and the way he controls the ball, he is very clever. “He is very relaxed and being a striker it’s somebody I look at and know that if I make that double movement, he will see it. “At time we might have lacked that a little bit last season which was that cutting e
  7. Kevin Nolan has stated that Notts County's 4-1 hammering by Derby County at Meadow Lane would have been a learning curve for his players. The Rams put the Magpies to the sword as Luke Thomas, Mason Bennett and Tom Huddlestone all scored, while Kane Hemmings scored a penalty for the hosts. “When you get beat 4-1 and you don’t have a lot of the ball then it’s difficult for the lads,” Nolan said at full time. “But it gives them great exposure in terms of out of possession stuff. “We haven’t done a lot of that yet so that’s something we can really focus and start working on it to ma
  8. Notts County will take on Doncaster Rovers and Grimsby Town in the group stage of the EFL Trophy. The Magpies have been placed in Group G of the competition’s Northern section, and will also play one academy side. The 48 EFL clubs have been placed into pre-determined groups, with consideration given to ensure travel time is minimised for supporters and recovery time is maximised for players. Players from EFL clubs who are out on loan in the National League and below are now eligible to feature in the competition. Meanwhile, invited teams have been restricted to fielding two
  9. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight in seeing Frank Lampard enter the world of management ahead of Saturday's friendly between Notts County and Derby County. The former Chelsea and England midfielder took the reins at Pride Park in May, 15 months after calling time on an illustrious career for club and country. Both Lampard and Nolan were accomplished midfielders and both have entered the world of management at a fairly young age, and the Magpies boss was eager to dispense some advice and information. "He's going to have a lot more sleepless nights," Nolan told the Nottingham
  10. Even though we're in the off-season at present, we've still had plenty of football action to go by over the last few weeks. First of all the World Cup, which has been an absolute spectacle from start to near-finish, not to mention England doing so well to get to the semi-finals and indeed continuing their participation with the third-place playoff. At Meadow Lane, meanwhile, we're very much in the full swing of pre-season, with players coming in and friendlies being played out. It's effectively been a seamless transition from international football back to club football, and by
  11. Kevin Nolan and Jon Stead have both praised Notts County first-year scholar Dongda He for his performance against Basford United. The Chinese midfielder shone in the first half of the 3-1 victory against the Evo-Stik Premier Division side and scored the goal of the game with a terrific effort before half-time. “We’ve got a lot of good players in that position, but he is someone who we can’t quickly thrust into the limelight,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “We’ve got to be patient with him, but he did really well. “He was around good players on Tuesday, but he’s shown he c
  12. Lewis Alessandra has stated that Notts County want to “go one better” next season in achieving promotion from League Two. The Magpies were in the promotion hunt virtually all season but were defeated by eventual playoff winners Coventry City in the semi-finals. Since then Notts have made several high-profile signings, including Enzio Boldewijn, Kane Hemmings, Kristian Dennis and David Vaughan. “We want to go one better, that’s the way all the lads feel in the dressing room,” Alessandra told the Nottingham Post. “I think the signings have shown real intent and personally I w
  13. Notts County have announced their squad numbers for the 2018-19 campaign. One of the standout news is that manager Kevin Nolan has given himself number 44, implying he could take to the pitch at some point during the season. New signing David Vaughan takes number 8, while fellow recent arrivals Nathan Thomas and Enzio Boldewijn claim 10 and 11 respectively. Kristian Dennis has been given the number 9 shirt, while Ben Hall takes 6 and Ross Fitzsimons is officially the number 1 this term. The list in full 1 Ross Fitzsimons, 2 Matt Tootle, 3 Pierce Bird, 4 Elliott Hewitt,
  14. Notts County have signed former Wales international David Vaughan on a free transfer. The 35-year-old joins the Magpies after being let go by rivals Nottingham Forest in the summer. Vaughan has played in the Premier League with Sunderland and Blackpool, as well as in Spain with Real Sociedad. He also won more than 40 Wales caps and represented the Dragons at Euro 2016. “This is a massive statement of intent from us,” Notts manager Kevin Nolan told the official club site. “He’s going to come with a lot of expectation on his shoulders but if there’s anyone who can handle
  15. Notts County have signed midfielder Enzio Boldewijn from fellow League Two side Crawley Town. The Magpies have paid a "significant six-figure sum" to land the Dutchman, and it is believed to be their biggest outlay since signing Kasper Schmeichel from Manchester City in 2009. The 25-year-old scored 16 goals in 101 appearances during a three-year stay in West Sussex and has agreed a three-year contract with the Magpies. “When I walked in here I was very impressed," Boldewijn told the official website. "Everything is professional and I can’t wait to be here every day. “The ma
