  1. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. The Magpies considerably strengthened their ranks over the summer with several high-profile signings rocking up at the club so the hope was of hitting the ground running against somewhat mediocre opposition. It didn't go that way though, with both sides looking rusty in the first League Two game of the campaign, and the outcome was a share of the spoils and a clean sheet apiece. Nathan Thomas came close when he controlled on the edge of the

It didn't go that way though, with both sides looking rusty in the first League Two game of the campaign, and the outcome was a share of the spoils and a clean sheet apiece, which is better than a loss I guess.

  3. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. Although the U's appeared the brighter of the two sides at the off, the Magpies almost took a fourth-minute lead through debutant Enzio Boldewijn. The Dutchman was able to let rip with a low shot from a good position but visiting goalkeeper Dillon Barnes was able to palm the effort behind for a corner. But Colchester then threatened midway through the first half through Frank Nouble, whose header from Ryan Jackson's cross flashed inches wide
  4. Who was your Man of the Match for Notts County's home game with Colchester United?
  5. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Richard Duffy will be Notts County's captain in Saturday's League Two opener against Colchester United. The defender held the armband for most of last season as Michael O'Connor was sidelined through a long-term injury. Now that O'Connor has left, Nolan has stated that Duffy will continue as skipper "for the foreseeable future" but says it's not a permanent appointment. “Richard Duffy will lead the team out on Saturday,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I haven’t made my mind up who is going to be the club captain yet. “Richard stepped in so we
  6. Alan Hardy has issued a call for more Notts County fans to get behind the team this upcoming season. The Magpies have invested heavily this summer following an above-expectations finish last term, qualifying for the playoffs. "A general rule of thumb is that if you get results right on the pitch, most other things will follow," Hardy wrote on the Notts website. "We've certainly seen that with major increases in supporters, hospitality sales, merchandise sales and other revenue streams. "I've lost count of the number of fans who have contacted me to say the atmosphere at the
  7. Noor Husin has claimed that Notts County's playoff heartache last season will prove a superb incentive for the Magpies to get the promotion job done this time round. Notts were in and around the League Two's top three for much of the 2017-18 campaign but stuttered in the final few months to finish in the playoffs, which they subsequently lost to eventual winners Coventry City. “Last season will only make us stronger and the boys know what it takes now,” Husin told the Nottingham Post. “Hopefully we can go a step further and get that promotion everybody is after. “Everyone was bi
  8. Kevin Nolan has spoken about Notts County duo Lewis Alessandra and Will Patching, praising the former and providing an update on the latter. The 29-year-old attacker scored against Basford and Leicester City and is pushing for a start in the League Two opener against Colchester United. Manchester City academy product Patching, meanwhile, made his debut for the Magpies at the weekend when he came on as a substitute in the 2-0 defeat at Luton Town. “Lewi is just a quality player, a quality lad and a good kid,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He is lovely to be around and is great
  9. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were punished for making “strange and sloppy” decisions in their 2-0 loss at Luton Town on Saturday. The Hatters secured a 2-0 win at Kenilworth Road through former Magpies loanee Jorge Grant and Elliott Lee. The latter scored from close range after Ross Fitzsimons failed to collect a header on the goal line following a corner. “I was a bit disappointed really in what we’ve been trying to do and what we’ve been about in pre-season,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I thought we were second best certainly in the second half. “In the
  10. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has stressed that each of his players will have a chance this weekend to earn a starting XI spot in their League Two opener against Colchester United. The first team travel to Luton Town on Saturday, while some senior players are also expected to feature at Carlton Town on Saturday in their final pre-season matches. The Magpies will open their campaign against the U's at Meadow Lane on August 4 and Nolan wants all of his charges to be "selfish" in their pursuit of a first-team berth. “There’s still plenty to play for,” Nolan told the official clu
  11. Notts County defender Ben Hall has tipped Kane Hemmings to have a good season as he admits he is the most difficult striker to deal with in training. Following last season's playoff near-miss, the Magpies set about bolstering their ranks with big money signings, Hemmings recruited from Oxford United for a six-figure sum. "I'd probably say Kane Hemmings is the toughest to mark at the moment with his movement. His hold up play is good too," Brighton loanee Hall told the Nottingham Post. "He was holding defenders off against Leicester so I think he'll be good for us." Hall als
  12. Sam Allardyce has admitted that he knew he would be criticised for leaving Notts County in 1999 for Bolton Wanderers but stated that it was an opportunity he couldn't miss and so had to be "selfish". In an interview published in "Record Breakers - The Inside Story of Notts County’s Momentous 1997/98 Title Win", the former Magpies boss was asked why he decided to up sticks. "I think I had to be selfish for myself," he replied. "There was a great affinity with the club and a great relationship that I had built. This opportunity came along where I had to be selfish for myself, and not f
  13. Kevin Nolan has spoken highly of Notts County academy product Dongda He and is confident of the club bringing through youngsters of high pedigree in the coming years. The Magpies have experienced a drought in talented academy players coming through the ranks to establish themselves in the senior team, with only Curtis Thompson and Haydn Hollis having made the breakthrough recently. However, with He looking like a real talent and the likes of Remaye Campbell, Pierce Bird, Alex Howes and new recruits Tom Crawford and Will Patching, the future is looking bright for those in black and wh
  14. Another weekend, another pre-season friendly, another seven notches on the calendar, another week closer to the start of the 2018-19 season. On Saturday, Notts County had the privilege of facing none other than the team that defied odds of 5,000-1 to win the Premier League title in undoubtedly the biggest fairy tale in sporting history, ever. Although Leicester City have not been able to mount another title challenge since the magical 2015-16, they nonetheless enjoyed a superb Champions League run in 2016-17 and finished in the top half of the table last time out. But obviously
  15. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has thanked club owner Alan Hardy for his backing in the transfer market although he has not shut the door on another recruit should the opportunity arise. The Magpies have enjoyed a superb summer in terms of transfers, bringing in several high profile signings including Kane Hemmings, Kristian Dennis, Enzio Boldewijn, David Vaughan and Andy Kellett. Speaking after the loss to Leicester City, Nolan said he is delighted with the business made so far but, echoing prior comments made by Hardy, added that he will keep his eyes open for particularly except
  16. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has claimed that his players will learn a lot from their second 4-1 loss in a row in Saturday's pre-season friendly loss to Leicester City. Lewis Alessandra gave the Magpies the lead but, despite putting in a much improved performance to the game against Derby County last week, the Foxes struck back through Wes Morgan, Hamza Choudhury, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani. "There was lots of good stuff to come out of it," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "We played some really good stuff at times. "We expected the quality they brought. I've just said to th
  17. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were like "rabbits in the headlights" when they had possession against Derby County and wants more confidence from them ahead of the Leicester City friendly. The Magpies lost 4-1 against the Rams last week and Nolan gave a scathing assessment of his players, and although he admitted that they've been put through their paces this week, he wants a better performance on Saturday. “I am looking for them to be tighter and that they don’t switch off as much,” he told the Nottingham Post. “But they’ve had a tough week and they will be playing
  18. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has revealed that Kristian Dennis is in line for his first pre-season appearance this weekend. The forward, who scored 21 goals for Chesterfield last season, missed the Magpies' opening three friendlies due to injury. However, Dennis is now back to fitness and Nolan says he will be involved against Leicester City on Saturday at Meadow Lane. "He's back," Nolan told the official club website. "We were gutted when we realised he wasn't going to be with us for the last week or two but he's come back and really had a good go. "He's settled i
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
