  1. Notts County assistant manager Richard Thomas is confident that Kristian Dennis's arrival at Meadow Lane means "a lot more goals walking through the door". The Magpies had a bid rejected for the forward on Tuesday, but followed it up with an improved offer believed to be £150,000 which was enough to seal the deal. Dennis, who scored 21 goals for the relegated Spireites, has signed a three-year contract at Meadow Lane in the club's biggest spend since the arrival of Izale McLeod from Crawley Town in 2015. “Kristian brings goals – and that’s what everybody’s craving,” Thomas told
  2. Alan Hardy has admitted that Notts County are hoping to re-sign Ben Hall on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion next season. The former Motherwell defender played 11 games for Kevin Nolan’s side in 2017-18, after joining on a deadline day loan in January. Brighton have high hopes for the Northern Ireland under-21 international and awarded him a new contract back in April, but he is expected to go back out on loan in 2018-19. “It would be great if we could bring Ben Hall back to the club,” Hardy told the Nottingham Post. “We’ve had some discussions about him as he was excel
  3. Notts County have added a fourth player to their ranks this week in the shape of Kane Hemmings, who joins from Oxford United on a three-year deal for a reported fee of around £100,000. The Magpies have already snapped up Tom Crawford, Kristian Dennis and Andy Kellett, and now they have secured the signature of a player who enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at Mansfield Town last term. Hemmings will be familiar to Notts fans, having scored a 99th-minute penalty in a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane in March. “I’m over the moon,” the Burton-upon-Trent lad told the official Notts site. “This is
  4. Notts County have announced the signing of teenage Chester FC midfielder Tom Crawford for an undisclosed fee. The 19-year-old, who celebrated his birthday today, made 17 appearances for the Blues and was deemed one of the bright lights in a poor season which saw the team relegated from the National League. Crawford, who made his England C debut against the Republic of Ireland amateur side on Sunday, was believed to be on the radar of several sides in the Championship and League One but opted for the Magpies. “What a day. It’s a great birthday present to sign at Meadow Lane and I
  5. Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons and defender Pierce Bird have signed new deals at Meadow Lane. The pair have put pen to paper on extensions that will run until the end of the 2019-20 season. Fitzsimons played 20 games for the Magpies last season, getting an extended run after now-released Adam Collin suffered an injury. However, he lost his place in the team after being sent off in a 2-1 defeat to Crawley Town for lashing out at an opposition player. “At the time [of the Crawley incident] I completely saw red,” Fitzsimons told the official site. “I just didn’t proce
  6. Notts County's regular League Two season has ended with a goalless draw against Luton Town at Meadow Lane on Saturday. The Magpies, who had sealed a playoff place but could not go any higher than third following the loss to Grimsby Town, played out a bright game against their promoted opponents. Neither side could break the deadlock, however, in a game that had an end-of-season team and with neither side having anything much to play for, except for where Notts would finish in the playoff positions. As it was, Kevin Nolan's charges finished fifth in the table and would find thems
  7. 27 May is the anniversary of Notts County's 2-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in the Third Division playoff final. Tommy Johnson gave the Magpies the lead with his 20th of the season before Craig Short made sure of victory to end County's five-year stay in the third tier. What memories do you have of the day? Were you there? Let PON know!
  8. Over the years, Notts County have had some fantastic forwards on their books. From Tom Keetley in the early 30s to Mark Stallard in the 2000s via the likes of Jackie Sewell, Tommy Lawton, Tony Hateley and Les Bradd, every Notts fan you speak to will always have that one standout striker they remember bagging the goals for the Magpies. Without a doubt, the last of the great Notts strikers - as of 2017 - is Lee Hughes. In his four years at Meadow Lane, he elevated himself to cult status with an impressive goal return and also a trophy, a rarity in recent years for the club. Born on 22
  9. 26 May is the anniversary of when Notts went to Wembley to take on Bradford in the playoff final and sadly were denied promotion in a 2-0 defeat. Dan Hamilton opened the scoring for the Bantams just eight minutes in and, despite a Magpies fightback, Mark Stallard struck after the break to send the Yorkshire side up. What memories do you have of the day? Let PON know!
  10. Alan Hardy has paid tribute to the players released by Notts County this week and pledged to build for "another season to remember". The Magpies finished fifth in League Two last season and took on Coventry City in the playoff semi-finals. It didn't go to plan, however, as Notts lost 5-2 on aggregate, and although Hardy was left with resentment over the unjust refereeing decisions, he will look ahead to the 2018-19 campaign. "When you get that close to tasting success, it summons a deep-seated passion to go one better and that will be our aim next season," Hardy wrote in the Not
  11. Notts County's season has finally come to an end, two weeks after the regular campaign was wrapped up. The fact we managed to extend the season by making the playoffs is obviously a sign that we have been heading in the right direction, and on the positive side it is nice to have been anxious about things in the top half of the table instead of the bottom like we had been for the previous four seasons. And of course, just the fact that we lost to Coventry City over two legs is no disgrace. After all, they are a big team with good players and a big fanbase, so had it just been a case
  12. Jorge Grant says he has "improved so much as a player and as a person" following his loan spell at Notts County. The Nottingham Forest attacker has enjoyed two bright loan spells at Meadow Lane, in the second half of the 2016-17 campaign and the entirery of last season. With County's 2017-18 campaign now over, Grant has returned over the Trent but posted some kind comments about the club and the fans. “Big thanks to everyone at Notts County for the last 18 months,” the 23-year-old wrote on Twitter. “Improved so much as a player and as a person! Sad to say goodbye to everyon
  13. Michael O’Connor has called for more ex-players to go into refereeing after Notts County were knocked out of the League Two playoffs against Coventry City. In the first leg at the Ricoh Arena, Matt Tootle was wrongly penalised for a foul on Tom Bayliss which saw Marc McNulty score a late penalty to earn Coventry a 1-1 draw. And in the return leg at Meadow Lane, Jonathan Forte saw an equaliser wrongly chalked off for offside when the score was 2-1, while Maxime Biamou's third Sky Blues goal was offside. “Forte was two yards onside, and there were two offsides for their third goal
  14. Alan Hardy has paid tribute to the Notts County fanbase in an end-of-season message following the playoff defeat to Coventry City. A total of 17,615 people were in attendance at Meadow Lane on Friday night to watch the Magpies fight for a place in the final at Wembley. It wasn't to be unfortunately, with the Sky Blues instead winning the chance to go up in the showpiece event on Bank Holiday Monday, with Exeter City in their way. Nonetheless, Hardy was delighted with the Black & White Army and their support at the game and throughout the season, and has pledged to work hard
  15. Many notable players have turned out for Notts County over the years. Some, who turned out for the club in the decades following its creation have been virtually committed to folklore, with the occasional grainy black-and-white photo. The club's longest-ever serving player, early 20th century goalkeeper Albert Iremonger, falls into this category. Some, like post-war prodigy Tommy Lawton, may be remembered by the likes of our grandparents or parents. The further we go through the decades, the more likely it is that the younger generations may have a recollection of them, ei
  16. Shola Ameobi, Rob Milsom, Adam Collin, Carl Dickinson and Jonathan Forte are among the players who will not be at Notts County next season as the club published their end-of-season retained list. All the players met with manager Kevin Nolan on Tuesday and a total of 11 senior players have been axed ahead of the new campaign. Meanwhile, Fans' Player of the Season Matt Tootle has penned a new deal at the club which will take him to 2020, while another six who were due to be out of contract have been offered extensions. "I can't thank the lads enough for their committed efforts in
  17. Matt Tootle has stressed that he "wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else" after he committed his future to Notts County until 2020. The Magpies defender, who was voted the Fans' Player of the Year, was rewarded for his endeavours after the club unveiled their retained list on Tuesday. Writing on his Twitter account, Tootle said: “Absolutely delighted to have signed a new two-year deal at Notts. “I wouldn’t have wanted to go anywhere else it’s been an amazing year which ended on a sour note. Can’t wait for next year already.” Chairman Alan Hardy added: “He is a fantastic a
  18. Dane Arnold wrote a lengthy post on the PON Facebook page and I thought it was too good not to put up on here for discussion. The squad needs an overhaul now some of the players past it and some not good enough Gk Adam Collin not sure about him might be me I just don't like him as a player I'd get rid Gk Branislav Pindroch not seen enough of him to decide worth keeping as third choice keeper keep Gk Ross fitzsimons thought he looked good in goal till his moment of madness is have him fighting for number 1 jersey keep Defender Matt tootle keep Defender Carl Dickins
  19. Notts County's Wembley dream came to an end on Friday night as a referee-assisted Coventry City side ran out 4-1 winners in their League Two playoff semi-final second leg at Meadow Lane. Level at 1-1 on aggregate following the first leg, the hosts admittedly put in a dire first-half performance as Maxime Biamou and Marc McNulty struck in the first half to put the Sky Blues in control. Jorge Grant pulled one back for the Magpies before the break while Jonathan Forte had a perfectly good goal disallowed for offside. Biamou then scored again in a move which saw two separate offside
  20. Notts County are set to launch a new senior women's team, just over a year after the previous incarnation, Notts County Ladies, was folded. Magpies owner Alan Hardy "called time" on efforts to save the Women's Super League 1 side in April 2017 when faced by debts of around £500,000, and folded just before the season started. The Lady Pies had been moved from Lincoln to Nottingham and got to the FA Cup Women's Final in 2015, but Hardy stressed that "the numbers simply (did) not stack up; continuing would have been little short of financial suicide." However, a new side called Not
  21. Notts County's Wembley dream came to an end on Friday night as Coventry City ran out 4-1 winners in their League Two playoff semi-final second leg at Meadow Lane. Level at 1-1 on aggregate following the first leg, the hosts admittedly put in a dire first-half performance as Maxime Biamou and Marc McNulty struck in the first half to put the Sky Blues in control. Jorge Grant pulled one back for the Magpies before the break while Jonathan Forte had a perfectly good goal disallowed for offside. Biamou then scored again in a move which saw two separate offsides in the build-up and To
  22. Coventry City captain Michael Doyle has claimed that Notts County's attitude prior to the League Two playoff semi-final second leg effectively did the team talk for his side. The Sky Blues coasted to a 4-1 win on Friday night, putting them into the playoff final 5-2 on aggregate at the expense of the Magpies. Doyle felt County gave Coventry an extra incentive because of things like the specially printed Wembley T-shirts and comments made by Alan Hardy. “I just felt that they thought that before the game they were through,” he told Coventry Telegraph, referring to the chairman’s
  23. Notts County's 2017-18 season ended on a sour note as Coventry City put in an assured display, helped in no small part by several dubious refereeing decisions, to run out 4-1 winners at Meadow Lane. The first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final ended 1-1 as a contentious penalty saw the Sky Blues edge level on the night and in the tie, but the hope was that home advantage in the return leg could prove beneficial for the Magpies. However, the first half at the San Sirrel was little short of atrocious for Notts, who fell behind after just six minutes when a corner was not proper
  24. Notts County's Wembley dream came to an end on Friday night as a referee-assisted Coventry City side ran out 4-1 winners in their League Two playoff semi-final second leg at Meadow Lane. Level at 1-1 on aggregate following the first leg, the hosts admittedly put in a dire first-half performance as Maxime Biamou and Marc McNulty struck in the first half to put the Sky Blues in control.

  25. Apologies for not putting this up last night, a combination of heartbreak and a focus on trying to muster a match report meant I completely forgot about the MOTM (not that I'm expecting much of a response given we were pretty crap for most of the game). Nonetheless, we gotta ask - who in your eyes was the least worst player for the Magpies?
