  1. 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
  2. 1. Milton Keynes (C,P) - This may be an opinion divider but I just feel that MK have a slight edge over us and Lincoln. Paul Tisdale moves from Exeter and has bought Jordan Moore-Taylor, Ryan Harley and Robbie Simpson with him. Kieran Agard should provide goals up front and creativity will come from Alex Gilbey and Chuks Aneke. Jordan Houghton is a good signing in midfield. They have retained most of their squad and with good depth and quality in each position, I think this might be the year Tisdale finally achieves promotion from this league. 2. Notts County (P) - Notts have had their be
  3. Lewis Alessandra has stated that Notts County want to “go one better” next season in achieving promotion from League Two. The Magpies were in the promotion hunt virtually all season but were defeated by eventual playoff winners Coventry City in the semi-finals. Since then Notts have made several high-profile signings, including Enzio Boldewijn, Kane Hemmings, Kristian Dennis and David Vaughan. “We want to go one better, that’s the way all the lads feel in the dressing room,” Alessandra told the Nottingham Post. “I think the signings have shown real intent and personally I w
  4. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Alan Smith left Notts County because he wanted a break from football. The former Leeds United and Manchester United man spent four years at Meadow Lane as a player, coach and even caretaker manager, before being released at the end of last season. Nolan also stated that Smith is looking to make a return to the game in several months and could hopefully assist on coaching and scouting duties. “We had Smudger who was a fantastic servant to this football club and wanted to walk away,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He will always love the game b
  5. Kevin Nolan has spoken of how Notts County want to make the playing squad younger and turn the team's youth players into assets. The Magpies signed several highly rated young players this summer, with the likes of Tom Crawford and Will Patching joining from Chester FC and Manchester City respectively. Nolan also says he wants up to six or seven Under-19s training with the first team by this time next year. He admits he is excited about the prospect of working with talented youngsters that could go on to spearhead the club and potentially be worth millions of pounds in the future
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Alan Hardy has given Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons a big vote of confidence, saying he will be "worth a large sum of money" in a few years' time. The 23-year-old has been offered a new contract by the Magpies and, should he sign it, is likely to become Adam Collin's successor after the former number one was released by the club. Fitzsimons did well in deputising for Collin last season but lost his place in January after lashing out at Crawley Town player Mark Connolly to earn a red card and give the opposition a penalty which was converted. “Ross was outstanding in the
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  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. 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
