  1. 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
  2. Jon Stead has triggered a clause in his Notts County contract to extend his stay at Meadow Lane past the end of the season. The 35-year-old striker, who has scored 13 goals this term, had to play a set number of games and the Nottingham Post confirmed that he has passed the required target. Manager Kevin Nolan reiterated the news and paid tribute to Stead, who turned down a move to the United States last summer to remain with the Magpies. “Jon will be here next season,” Nolan told the Post at his pre-match press conference ahead of the League Two trip to Colchester United.
  3. Notts County have been boosted by the return of Jon Stead for the trip to face Colchester United on Saturday. The 35-year-old, who triggered an extension this week which will see him with the Magpies for another season, missed the win over Coventry City. Winger Terry Hawkridge will also be available after being sidelined through a knock to allow Nolan more firepower at his disposal. “Jon trained on Thursday and the couple of days before that,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He’s available for selection as well as Terry Hawkridge. “It was hard telling lads last year that t
  4. Notts County have moved into the top three of the League Two table thanks to a 1-1 draw at Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night. Terry Hawridge was set up by Jon Stead for the opening goal of the night in the 42nd minute as Kevin Nolan's side led 1-0 at the break. They also had strong claims for a penalty waved away by referee Graham Horwood in the 17th minute when Stead was brought down by Scott Flinders. However, the Robins drew level through Joe Morrell's low shot from 25 yards deflecting off Ben Hall and beating the outstretched hand of Adam Collin on 67 minutes. In the lat
  5. Kevin Nolan has described referee Graham Horwood as "an absolute shambles" following his performance in Notts County's 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night. The Magpies boss was unhappy with an incident in the 17th minute when Jon Stead was brought down by goalkeeper Scott Flinders in the box, only for a penalty not to be given. Stead went on to assist Terry Hawkridge for the game's opening goal shortly before the break, but the Robins equalised in the second half through Joe Morrell for a share of the spoils. "I don’t want to talk about referees but I am going to have
  6. Notts County have moved into the top three of the League Two table thanks to a 1-1 draw at Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night. Originally meant to be played on Saturday afternoon, the fixture at Whaddon Road was moved back due to the adverse weather. The hosts weighed in with the first effort as Kevin Dawson fired an overhead kick wide while, at the other end, Jon Stead's cross failed to find a teammate's foot to send it goalwards. Some neat play in middle then lead to a chance for Mohamed Eisa, who got the better of Matt Tootle but could only flash his effort wide. There was
  7. Notts County have bounced back from their horror week with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Carlisle United on Tuesday night. Jon Stead put the Magpies ahead in the 19th minute when he collected a pass from Lewis Alessandra and fired a goalward effort which hit Cumbrians goalkeeper Jack Bonham and looped into the net. The veteran striker then doubled County's lead in the 35th minute when he reacted quickest during an almighty goalmouth scramble. Carlisle went on to make it a nervy finish through a deflected Jamie Devitt strike after the break and an inexplicable seven minutes of injur
  8. An entertaining and informative interview from Sky Sports with Notts County veterans Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi, alas not-very-affectionately named "The Old Guys"... The Old Guys: Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi Q&A Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi may be well into the twilight of their careers, but both are still going strong for Notts County as they push for promotion in League Two. Ahead of their FA Cup clash with Swansea on Saturday, Stead, 34, and Ameobi, 36, sat down with Soccer Saturday to discuss their motivations to keep playing, their proudest moments and more... What mo
  9. Kevin Nolan has reiterated his support and pride in Jon Stead, who boasts a perfect goalscoring record of a goal a game for Notts County this calendar year. The veteran striker had his fair share of criticisms in the first half of the season but in 2018, only Manchester City's Sergio Aguero boasts more goals than him in the four top divisions of English football. Alongside scoring in every league and cup game this year, Stead also has a goal in every round of the FA Cup he's played in, and his tally this term currently stands at 11. "I spoke a month or so ago about Steady and sa
  10. Notts County's FA Cup adventure is still alive as the Magpies held Premier League side Swansea City to a 1-1 draw in Saturday's fourth-round encounter at Meadow Lane. The hosts began brightly as Jorge Grant and Jon Stead combined to get the ball into the box and Elliott Hewitt came within a whisker of turning home at the far post. Swansea took a while to get into gear, with Mike van der Hoorn and Tammy Abraham failing to trouble Adam Collin, whose return to fitness coincided nicely following Ross Fitzsimons's suspension. Around the half-hour mark the visitors began to provide mo

  12. Pride of Nottingham was at Meadow Lane for Notts County's 2-1 defeat to Exeter City and interviewed several Magpies fans ahead of kickoff.

  13. Jon Stead has spoken about Ryan Yates's recall from Notts County and also praised replacement loanee Matty Virtue. The Nottingham Forest youngster impressed on loan at Meadow Lane but was recalled before being sent out to Scunthorpe United in League One. It wouldn't be long before another highly-rated youngster arrived at the club, however, in the shape of Liverpool Under-23 captain Virtue. “We were not really surprised (about Yates's departure) because Ryan did fantastically well for us,” Stead told the Nottingham Post. “We just took it in our stride really because there a
  14. Alan Hardy would love to see Notts County get a Premier League top-six team away from home in tonight's FA Cup fourth-round draw. The Magpies stunned Championship side Brentford at Griffin Park in the third round, Jon Stead's superb curled effort the difference in a 1-0 away win. Hardy described the victory and the subsequent euphoria as his best result as chairman and looked forward to seeing what the next round would bring. “This win was right at the top for all sorts of reasons, in terms of the drama, the excitement, the nerve-wracking moments and how tense it was,” he told t
  15. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight with Jon Stead, describing him as an "unsung hero" for his man-of-the-match performance against Brentford in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday. The veteran striker, part of the Bradford City team which shocked Chelsea in the fourth round three years ago, repeated his feat with the winner against the Championship Bees at Griffin Park. Stead had received some fan flak at times for a number of reasons including a relatively low goal tally, but Nolan was quick to point out his contributions this season. “Steady’s best performance have be
  16. Notts County have reached the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Brentford. The Magpies more than matched their Championship opponents for the majority of the game at Griffin Park. Moments after a Bees effort bounced along the Notts goal-line, the visitors attacked at the other end and scored through a superb Jon Stead curled shot. The result sees Notts in the hat for Monday's draw, with the potential of a plum tie against a Premier League side up for grabs. Notts vlogger and Pride of Nottingham contributor ARLukomski discussed the fixture ahead of kickoff,
  17. Jon Stead has described Notts County's FA Cup third-round 1-0 win over Brentford as "incredible" and was delighted to finally score after cutting in with his left foot. The veteran striker claimed the winner on Saturday at Griffin Park with a wonderful curling shot after cutting in from the right-hand channel, putting the Magpies in the fourth round of the competition. Stead was also relieved as he acknowledged his prior attempts to pull off the move over the last 12 months have not quite worked out. “It’s incredible,” Stead told the official Notts website. “I thought we were te
  18. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were buoyed by the fact Brentford made a host of changes to their line-up and were eager to exploit that in their FA Cup third-round win. Bees boss Dean Smith made eight changes to the side which lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek and the team laboured against the Magpies at Griffin Park. Notts took the lead through Jon Stead's superb curling effort midway through the second half and were able to see the game out for a place in the fourth round. "They made a lot of changes to their normal line-up and we thought we could exploit
  19. Port Vale manager Neil Aspin has hit out at the penalty decision which helped Notts County claim all three points in a 1-0 win the New Year's Day game at Meadow Lane. Kevin Nolan's charges had been denied several key decisions by the referee but were given the opportunity to take the lead late on when Marcus Harness's shove on Jon Stead led to the awarding of a spot kick. From 12 yards out, the veteran striker smashed the ball into the top corner, leaving goalkeeper Ryan Boot no chance, to keep Notts well in the automatic promotion positions. “I have watched it back on the lapto
  20. Notts County kept up the pressure on League Two leaders Luton Town with a 1-0 win over Port Vale at Meadow Lane on New Year's Day. The encounter was settled by Jon Stead's penalty, awarded after the veteran striker was fouled in the box by defender Marcus Harness. Prior to their late spot kick, Kevin Nolan's side found themselves denied several key refereeing decisions, while Vale's Ryan Boot was the busier of the two goalkeepers. County's win over the Valiants puts them on 50 points, four behind table toppers Luton Town - who beat Lincoln City 4-2 - and seven clear of fourth pl
  21. Kevin Nolan has hailed his "brilliant" Notts County side for responding to the defeat at Swindon Town with a 1-0 victory over Port Vale. Jon Stead's late penalty proved the difference between the two sides and stopped Vale from notching up a third win in a row against League Two's big hitters, having beaten Coventry City and Luton Town prior to their visit of Meadow Lane. "I thought we were brilliant," Nolan told the official Notts site. "I was pleased with the positive nature in how we responded to what was a poor display on Saturday. "The reaction I got from the lads today was
  22. Notts County have claimed their second win in three League Two games after Jon Stead scored a late penalty to secure a 1-0 victory over Port Vale. The Magpies had lost 1-0 at Swindon Town two days ago but bounced back by beating a Vale side that had notched up wins over Luton Town and Coventry City over the festive period. Notts created the first chance of the afternoon, Lewis Alessandra seeing a powerful strike blocked by Tom Anderson on five minutes. At the other end, Anderson volleyed just over the bar from inside the area in the 10th minute, while Ben Whitfield's dangerous c
  23. Jon Stead has admitted he would have liked to score more goals than he has done so far this season, although he's happy with his general play. The 34-year-old has scored five times in this campaign but has nonetheless put in good performances to help Notts County to second in the League Two table. “I think my all-round game has been some of the best of my career this year,” Stead told the Nottingham Post. “But I’ve ended up sacrificing goals and that’s been disappointing. “I think I’ve got five for the season so far and that isn’t enough. It’s something that I want to impro
  24. A couple of years ago, Notts County boasted a number of former Manchester United players in Alan Smith, Roy Carroll and Kevin Pilkington. Of those, only Smith is still at Meadow Lane, which has morphed into a bit of a "Newcastle United Old Boys Club" now. Smith also played at St James' Park, while Kevin Nolan and Shola Ameobi also donned the "other" black and white stripes up on Tyneside. Having former Premier League players, individuals whose careers continue to be held in high esteem, at Notts is a huge boost on three fronts - on the pitch, off the pitch, and in the marketing depar
  25. Alan Hardy has recently described what he is doing - and continuing to do - at Notts County as a "revolution". Given how the last 11 months or so have panned out, you wouldn't argue against it. This time last year, Notts were in the middle of a truly horrendous losing run which would go on to span 10 matches, and the atmosphere at Meadow Lane was understandably so toxic that Chernobyl would have felt like a spa weekend in comparison. And indeed, Hardy has done the conventional things right - he's invested shrewdly in the club from top to bottom, appointing a dynamic young manager in
