  1. Name: Highlights: Notts County 2-1 Barnet Category: Match Highlights Date Added: 2017-10-16 Submitter: Chris Notts County v Barnet Highlights: Notts County 2-1 Barnet Why not subscribe to PrideofNottinghamTV?
  2. Notts County have returned to winning ways and sit atop League Two once again following Saturday's 2-1 win over Barnet at Meadow Lane. The Magpies had slipped into a mini-blip prior to this weekend, with a defeat at Mansfield Town and a poor home draw with Forest Green Rovers sending alarm bells ringing ever so slightly. However, Shola Ameobi's header on the quarter-hour mark and Ryan Yates's equivalent from Matt Tootle's pinpoint cross set Notts on their way, even if it proved a nervy ending with Simeon Akinola's late deficit-halver. Kevin Nolan's charges started brightly and t
  3. Shola Ameobi has spoken of a "culture change" at Notts County whereby the players have higher expectations of themselves. Following a near-perfect September, the Magpies have stumbled in the last two weeks, losing at Mansfield Town and scraping a draw with Forest Green Rovers at Meadow Lane. With Barnet the next opponents, Ameobi is eager to "show the fans we still have plenty to give". The 36-year-old told the Nottingham Post: "From the run we had at the beginning of the season, the last two results haven't been what we wanted. "But we have all taken stock this week as a s
  4. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight with Shola Ameobi's return for Notts County, but insists he will not rush him back into action. The former Newcastle United forward had not played for the Magpies since injuring his hamstring in the win over Morecambe. However, Ameobi was given more than 20 minutes on the pitch in the derby with Mansfield Town, and Nolan says his return gives him more attacking talent at his disposal. “Shola’s return is great as it gives us more options,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “We are now at the point where, with the exception of Dan Jones, we
  5. August is over and done with, Notts County's first month of the season is now just a memory, and we move on to September's fixtures with the Magpies nicely nestled in seventh place in League Two. However, much like any other job where its employees are routinely recognised and rewarded, it's worth recognising the players who have impressed in the black and white in August. Jorge Grant has already been named the player of the month by Notts County, the fans picking him head and shoulders over everyone else (64.8 percent compared to second-placed Terry Hawkridge with 20.1 percent).
  6. Collecting football stickers. The staple of many a young football fan (and plenty of grown-ups too). A difficult but enjoyable mission which, if/when completed, gives you a massive of achievement. Chasing stickers is hard enough as it is - but imagine doing this while also getting all the players to sign the ones with their face on it. Pretty much a case of God Mode difficulty level. This is exactly what Stickerchase are doing at present, however, and it's being done for a good cause. Their mission is to get the 2014 Panini World Cup sticker album signed by all the players in th
  7. Kevin Nolan has hinted towards Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi remaining the first-choice strike partnership at Notts County, claiming that Jonathan Forte was not unlucky to have been named on the bench for the 2-2 draw with Accrington Stanley. Forte had scored in his previous two appearances before Friday’s League Two fixture at Meadow Lane, but was nonetheless not picked in the starting XI as the Magpies shared the spoils with Stanley. “I don’t think he (Forte) was unlucky. I explained the reasoning to him on Thursday why he didn’t start and he took it on the chin,” Nolan told the Notti
  8. Notts County have triumphed in a topsy-turvy, nervy and ultimately thrilling game against Wycombe Wanderers, claiming a 4-2 win at Adams Park. The Magpies threatened early on through Shaun Brisley, whose far post header was cleared off the line by Michael Harriman. Notts then took the lead after just 14 minutes, a pinpoint Dan Jones free kick falling perfectly to Richard Duffy, who made no mistake with a thumping header into the back of the Chairboys net. Kevin Nolan's charges promptly doubled their advantage in comical fashion just a minute later, as Luke O'Nien's clearance hit
  9. Ryan Yates has revealed that his decision to join Notts County on loan was mainly influenced by Kevin Nolan being manager at the club. The 19-year-old, who is on the books at Nottingham Forest, joined the Magpies for a season-long spell at the start of the season. Despite being tracked by a number of teams interested in his services, Yates decided to go for a loan move over the Trent. “First and foremost my decision to come here was because of Kevin Nolan being the manager,” he told the Nottingham Post. “That was the main reason. He has played in the Premier League and I’ve
  10. We've made a lot of signings this week. Six, to be precise. And now Notts have stepped up their recruitment drive, the question on everyone's lips is, how are we going to line up against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday? There may be some difference in opinions in the formation that we use throughout the season, but I'm going to stick with 4-4-2 as we used that nearly all of the time last season when Nolan took over. Starting in goal. Adam Collin seems like the obvious choice and whilst most of our fans don't like him much, it's hard to see Fitzsimons or Pindroch replacin
  11. Shola Ameobi has revealed that he was considering whether to call time on his career prior to joining Notts County, but says he knew it was "the right time to get back into the game" at Meadow Lane. Between May 2016 and February this year, he was without a club having been released by Fleetwood Town, but was snapped up by former Newcastle United teammate - and Magpies manager - Kevin Nolan to try and help a side then in danger of relegation from the Football League. However, five months down the line he has become a fan favourite at Notts and will be with the club going into the 2017
  12. Shola Ameobi has claimed that Notts County are on the "cusp of something great" and says it influenced his decision to remain at Meadow Lane. The former Newcastle United striker signed on a free transfer in January and played a key role in the Magpies' bid to climb away from relegation last season. Now the 35-year-old, who penned a new deal at the club in the summer, believes he is in the correct environment to make further progress in the upcoming campaign as Kevin Nolan's team target League Two glory. "The fans have really been behind the team and myself from the get-go," he t
  13. Notts County are good enough to launch a League Two playoff challenge next season, according to Shola Ameobi. The Magpies finished last season strongly, losing just once at home since Kevin Nolan took charge of the first team in January. Ameobi played a key role himself in driving the club out of relegation danger by scoring four goals following his arrival at the start of the year, and is now hoping for a top-seven finish. "I am always looking to do the best we can," he told the Nottingham Post. "We had a great end to last season and we want to make progress from that. "We
  14. All the Notts County players that were offered contracts have re-signed, which speaks volumes for the atmosphere that people like Alan Hardy and Kevin Nolan have created around the club. Some people may dismiss players such as Curtis Thompson and Haydn Hollis signing the contracts offered to them, but as Adam Campbell signing for Morecambe has shown, players that were on the fringe of our squad are capable of signing for our League Two rivals. The tying down of Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi perfectly demonstrates the attraction of Notts as a club, of the atmosphere and aspirations that
  15. I'd love to see us recruit a young striker who has a bit of pace about them, however technically these asset must be there in terms of natural skill/finishing but I feel these are the key factors that would allow us to find our own natural goalscorer without being forced to spend money on a transfer fee. Does anyone else feel Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi has a lot more to offer us in terms of player development and passing on their experience/knowledge to an upcoming player?
  16. Shola Ameobi has joined Notts County strike partner Jon Stead in extending his contract at Meadow Lane. The former Newcastle United marksman joined the Magpies in the January 2017 transfer window and quickly became a fan favourite. Playing under former teammate Kevin Nolan, he flourished in the Notts team and played a big part in their revival, scoring four times in 17 games. Ameobi told the official Notts site: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the club so far and I'm excited for what next season holds in store. "I've been taken aback by the support of the fans, who ha
  17. How do you feel about Shola Ameobi extending his stay at Meadow Lane? I'm personally pleased to see him sign up to the 2017-18 season, as I didn't think we would get both him and Jon Stead. I think the core of the squad now has shape and I do believe that other players will want to play in this 'feel good' Notts squad. I hope its the start of the additional quality we need. No complaints from me.
  18. With Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi both signing the contract extensions offered to them by Notts County, it dismisses my concerns over who can lead the Magpies front line during the 2017-18 season. The majority of fans I know were quietly confident about both of them signing, but I had my doubts and I thought it would be just one of the two staying put. Yet it is fantastic news that Kevin Nolan has successfully managed to retain them both, they showed us last season what a hard-working duo could do up front. Even when they didn’t play together, they allowed a poor Magpie squad to b
  19. From the official site: Legendary former Notts striker Lee Hughes will be taking part in what is sure to be a fascinating Q&A evening at Meadow Lane on Tuesday 2 May (doors 7pm). Sponsored by Nottingham Bierkeller, the evening will also see current first-team players Jon Stead, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy take to the stage in the 1862 Suite. Hughes will be interviewed by the iconic Colin Slater, who recently announced he would be relinquishing his BBC Radio Nottingham commentary duties at the end of the season. Tickets are priced £20, including a pie and peas supper.

  21. Notts County were denied a clear penalty as they played out a 2-2 draw in Good Friday's League Two fixture at Crewe Alexandra. The opener came in the ninth minute as the Magpies made the most of a howler in the hosts' defence. James Jones's misplaced pass on the edge of the box was intercepted by Adam Campbell, who bore forward and slotted past goalkeeper Ben Garratt. However, a defensive gaffe from Notts was responsible for the Railwaymen drawing level, as Haydn Hollis gave the ball away and George Cooper quickly spotted the run of Chris Dagnall. The striker raced forward,
  22. Notts County were denied a clear penalty in Friday's 2-2 draw with Crewe Alexandra at Gresty Road. Chris Dagnall cancelled out Adam Campbell's early opener for the Magpies, before captain Michael O'Connor restored the visitors' lead with a second-half finish against his former club. However, County's hopes of recording a fifth straight win were dashed when James Jones made amends for gifting the visitors their early lead. Kevin Nolan's charges should have had a penalty late on when Shola Ameobi was brought down by goalkeeper Ben Garratt in the box, but referee Gavin Ward ended u
  23. Kevin Nolan has expressed his bewilderment with referee Gavin Ward's decision not to award Shola Ameobi a penalty late on in Notts County's 2-2 draw at Crewe Alexandra. With the League Two clash at Gresty Road delicately poised, the veteran striker was brought down by Crewe goalkeeper Ben Garratt, but instead the referee gave the hosts a free kick and booked Ameobi for diving. Nolan could barely contain his frustration after the game, and the Nottingham Post quotes him as saying: "Your guess is as good as mine as to why the ref didn't give it. "Whether we would have scored I don
  24. Shola Ameobi is only contracted to the end of the season, he still lives in Newcastle and he told a fan at our last home game that he is unsure about his plans - stating that 'pre season' would allow him to decide. Jon Stead is also up for a contract renewal and there's heavy rumours that he is already making plans to move to the United States. Would allowing both to leave be a major problem for Notts? They have a good understanding, whilst I think there experience is a major part in our turn around. I do feel we could sign players good enough to get goals in this division, however I
  25. Shola Ameobi has dropped a massive hint towards extending his Notts County contract beyond the end of the season after admitting it's "the place I am supposed to be". The former Newcastle United striker penned a short-term deal in February, with ex-teammate and friend Kevin Nolan at the help of the Magpies. Since then, he has won plaudits from both fans and pundits with four goals in 13 appearances, even prompting some Newcastle fans to joke about signing him back. Speaking of his time at Notts, Ameobi told the Nottingham Post: "I am loving every minute of it and the big thing f
