  1. The 2018/19 League Two fixture list has been published, and Notts County will begin next season with a home clash against Colchester United. The U's, who finished lucky 13th in the table last season, will travel to Meadow Lane for their opener on Saturday 5 August. It is the first time Notts have opened the season at home in eight years when they faced Huddersfield Town. The Magpies will then travel to Cambridge United a week later before rounding off the month with games against Yeovil Town, a midweek trip to Newport County and a foray to Lincoln City. Saturday 8 December
  2. Alan Hardy has mentioned a couple of updates on his Twitter page. The first is a brand new pitch to be rolled out at the end of the season, and also a sponsorship with Puma... And he also said he was looking into the possibility of installing a brand new state-of-the-art scoreboard. Let's hear what you think about all three of these developments.
  3. A plaque commemorating the foundation of Notts County has been unveiled at Nottingham's Mercure Hotel. Previously known as the George Hotel, the location was where "Notts Foot Ball Club" became official following a committee meeting within its walls in December 1864. Colin Slater, who has reported on the club for more than 50 years as part of BBC Radio Nottingham, revealed the tribute outside the hotel in George Street on Sunday. "The fact the plaque is here and the meeting took place here is of huge significance," Slater told the BBC website. "Officers were elected, everyt
  4. A plaque commemorating the foundation of Notts County was unveiled at Nottingham's Mercure Hotel last weekend. Previously known as the George Hotel, the location - just off the city centre en route to Hockley and the Lace Market - was where "Notts Foot Ball Club" became official following a committee meeting within its walls in December 1864. Colin Slater, who has reported on the club for more than 50 years as part of BBC Radio Nottingham, revealed the tribute outside the hotel in George Street on Sunday. The Nottingham Civic Society and Notts fan Andy Black commissioned the bla
  5. Notts County have announced the return of Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben Hall on loan for the entirety of the 2018-19 season. The Northern Ireland Under-21 international impressed at Meadow Lane last term in a six-month loan spell which yielded 11 appearances. "I can't wait to come back. My time at Notts so far has been an amazing experience," Hall told the Notts website. "Meadow Lane is definitely the best place for me right now. "I feel like I improved so much during my loan last season and I'm really pleased the gaffer [Kevin Nolan] and his staff wanted me to come ba
  6. Alan Hardy has claimed that Notts County's EFL Cup game at Middlesbrough will be a "great test" for both teams. The Magpies will make the journey to the Riverside Stadium in the week commencing August 13 and will take on a side which reached the Championship playoffs last term. Notts played Boro away in the League Cup in September 2006 and famously won 1-0 in front of 11,148 fans. "It will be a great test for both teams," Hardy told the Nottingham Post. "Boro will naturally be favourites with the bookmakers, but we proved last year during our FA Cup run that we will give an
  7. Our signings so far! Who are they? Where do they come from? Why are they the chosen ones? With Notts County being considerably active in the transfer window, I thought I would shine a light on the players we have signed so far and see what they have on their CV and what they can offer to our setup. Having signed 5 players so far it seems promising down at Meadow Lane and with a lack of squad depth at the moment it seems the transfers wont stop there. So first up… Tom Crawford – Tom Crawford is a central midfielder who was acquired from the recently relegated Chester FC for an un
  8. Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons has admitted he needs to improve his temperament but says he will not have a moment of madness like he did in the Crawley Town game. The Magpies stopper, who has penned a new two-year contract, lashed out at Mark Connolly near the end of that game in January. Fitzsimons picked up a red card and gave the visitors a match-winning penalty as Kevin Nolan’s side lost 2-1, before being hit with a three-match ban and losing his first-team place to Adam Collin. “I’d say one of the things I need to improve is my temperament, hence the kick up the b
  9. Notts County have been handed an away trip to Middlesbrough in the first round of the 2018-19 EFL Cup / Carabao Cup. The Magpies will make the journey to the Riverside Stadium in the week commencing August 13 and will take on a side which reached the Championship playoffs last term. Notts played Boro away League Cup in September 2006 and famously won 1-0 in front of 11,148 fans. The 2018/19 draw took place at the Independence Palace, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and 70 clubs went into the hat divided into northern and southern sections. Unlike in previous seasons, however,
  10. Wow... the media has spring forth a rumour that Michael O'Connor won't be renewing his contract with Notts County, and all hell breaks loose on social media! There's a few 'camps' on this, from the "he's an ungrateful, disloyal, past-it, broken player, so let him go!" to the (I think, much more sensible), "he's a family man who is entitled to look after the best interests of his family!" I truly can't understand the former point of view; particularly since any player, under contract, (as he was) is fully entitled to receive treatment from his club (free-of-charge) and recuperation
  11. Former Notts County manager Sam Allardyce says he is "jealous" of Gareth Southgate and believes it should be him leading England at the World Cup in Russia. The 63-year-old left his post as England coach by mutual agreement in September 2016 after only one match in charge, following claims by a newspaper that he gave advice on how to "get around" player transfer rules. In a BBC documentary to air on Sunday, Allardyce said of his departure: "That decision was made very hastily. "Jealous is what I feel. Massively disappointed. That should be me there. Unfortunately because of the
  12. Notts County chairman Alan Hardy has confirmed that the club will look into reducing the size of the matchday programme but is unlikely to get rid of them completely. EFL clubs recently voted to end their compulsory publication as a result of declining sales and the costs involved in production. “Like the fans I love a good programme, but the truth is the sales are declining every year,” Hardy told the Nottingham Post. “A tremendous amount of work goes into them and they are a costly exercise with net losses being considerable. “But I don’t think it is right to do away with
  13. Alan Hardy has revealed that one in three Notts County season ticket holders renewing this summer are now under the age of 21, after analysing crowd data from last season. In addition, there has been an increase of more than 62 per cent in young fans buying tickets for matches. "This is tremendous news for the long term development and prosperity of the club," he told the Nottingham Post. "I have often listened to people telling me that the club has an ageing fan base. Well, not any more it hasn't. "Young people and families are the lifeblood of this club and we believe we
  14. Notts County have confirmed they will be hosting a breakfast event at Meadow Lane to find out the release of the 2018-19 League Two fixtures. The event (and the draw) will take place on Thursday 21 June, with doors opening at 8am, and costs £10. Notts chairman Alan Hardy, manager Kevin Nolan and director Darren Fletcher will be present as the club finds out their fate in terms of who they'll play in the league and when. To book, email kirsty.edwards@nottscountyfc.co.uk or call 0115 955 7222. In addition, the EFL has confirmed that the draw for the first round of the EFL Cup
  15. Alan Hardy has revealed that he has held talks with EFL and FA officials in hopes of improving the quality of refereeing at lower-league level. League Two was beset by officiating errors ranging from the minute to the critical, such as the ones in the Coventry City games that saw the Magpies miss out on progress to the playoff final. "I have met with Dave Cookson, the Football Services Director at the EFL, as well as Andy Ambler, the head of professional game relations at the Football Association, to not only share concerns but also discuss ways in which we can assist officials," Har
  16. Richard Thomas has spoken of how important it is for Notts County's players to not only recuperate after the rigours of last season but also to begin getting back into the swing of things in early June. The Magpies saw their season prolonged due to the playoffs and are set to report back to training in three weeks' time. “First thing is to rest and recuperate,” assistant manager Thomas told the official website. “Get yourself some mental space, just relax, switch off and spend time with family and friends. “Early June is the time to start ticking over so you don’t lose ever
  17. Alan Hardy has spoken of the signings of Tom Crawford and Will Patching as testament to how far Notts County have come and how promising their future appears. The Magpies paid an undisclosed fee to Chester for midfielder Crawford last week, and followed it up on Monday with a free transfer move for Manchester City’s Patching. “I am very excited with the arrival of Tom and Will,” Hardy told the Nottingham Post. “There were clubs further up in the food chain looking at both of them, but they could see what we are trying to build here at Meadow Lane. They are young, they are techni
  18. Dan Jones has signed a new two-year contract at Notts County. The 31-year-old left-back, who joined on a free transfer a year ago scored four goals in 33 games last season, helping the Magpies reach the playoffs. Jones was one of several players to be offered a new deal by boss Kevin Nolan when the 2018 retained list was announced last month. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Meadow Lane so far and there was only one place I wanted to be next season,” Jones told the official club website. "The manager, his staff, my team-mates and the club as a whole have been amazing.
  19. New Notts County striker Kristian Dennis has expressed his desire to be at the right end of the League Two table this season after back-to-back relegations with Chesterfield. The 28-year-old joined the Magpies last week in a deal thought to have cost the club £150,000. Dennis scored 21 goals last season but could not prevent the Spireites from dropping out of the Football League and is eager to make up for it by winning promotion with Notts. “I came back into the league with Chesterfield and had two relegations so that’s the last thing I want on my mind,” he told the Nottingham
  20. Notts County assistant manager Richard Thomas has described Dan Jones's new contract as "great business for the club". The left-back put pen to paper on a two-year deal on Wednesday, joining goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons and defender Pierce Bird in committing his future to the club. Jones was impressive towards the end of last season and ended the campaign with four goals, and Thomas praised him for his attitude and skills. “We’re delighted DJ will be with us again next year," he told the Nottingham Post. "He's fantastic to work with on a daily basis and is constantly looking
  21. Notts County have confirmed that goalkeeper Branislav Pindroch has signed a new two-year deal at Meadow Lane. The 26-year-old, who became the first Slovakian to play for the Magpies when he joined the club last summer, made four appearances last season and was third choice behind Adam Collin and Ross Fitzsimons. “I have really enjoyed my first season at the club,” he told the official website. “Learning from the likes of Mark Crossley and the manager has been an amazing experience for me and I’m so happy it’s going to continue. “I’m really looking forward to pre-season and
  22. Notts County defender Richard Duffy has signed a new contract with the club. The 32-year-old, who stood in as captain for the previously injured Michael O'Connor, made 50 appearances for the Magpies. Duffy joined Notts in the summer of 2016 and has made 97 appearances in total for the club. "The club has come on leaps and bounds in the last 18 months," the Welshman told the official website. "We've given ourselves a really strong foundation to build from in 2018-19 and I want to be part of that. "It will be my third season at Notts and it feels like home now." Not
  23. Notts County owner Alan Hardy has stressed how important it was to give "an early statement of intent" to the league by moving early to bring in big signings. The club chairman acknowledges that, two weeks ago, the Magpies were left reeling by their playoff defeat to Coventry City. Moving on from that, Hardy spoke of showing the world that Notts "would be far from a wounded animal next season", ergo the arrivals of the likes of Kristian Dennis, Kane Hemmings, Andy Kellett and Tom Crawford. "Let’s rewind a fortnight," Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post. "The final whistle has jus
  24. Notts County have announced the signing of Manchester City academy midfielder Will Patching once his contract at the Etihad expires on July 1. The 19-year-old, who has been with the Premier League champions since the under-six age group, has agreed a two-year deal at Meadow Lane. “I’ve never had an experience like this before,” Patching told the official Notts site. “I’m looking forward to it. “I love having the ball at my feet and I can chip in with assists and like scoring goals, but I can play in a deeper holding position as well. I enjoy set pieces, too. I do a lot of work o
  25. Notts County have announced the double signing of Chesterfield striker Kristian Dennis and his former loan teammate, left-back Andy Kellett, who joins from Wigan Athletic. Dennis, 28, scored 21 goals for the Spireites last season, an impressive return which however could not keep the Derbyshire club in League Two, and joins for an undisclosed fee. Kellett, meanwhile, was on loan at the Proact Stadium last term but arrives at Meadow Lane after having been released by the Championship-bound Latics. “I’m aiming for more (goals), to be honest,” Dennis, who penned a three-year deal,
