  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Lewis Alessandra has claimed that nobody within the Notts County camp has given up on the prospect of automatic promotion from League Two. The Magpies sit seven points adrift of the top three with five games remaining in the season and have been in bad form over the last few weeks, meaning many fans have all but settled for the playoffs at best. However, Alessandra is adamant that, with 15 points left to play for and the tightness and inconsistency among even the top teams of the division, anything can happen. "We have five big games left and we're raring to go. If we win a coup
  4. Kevin Nolan has spoken of the virus which is currently plaguing the Notts County setup and is hoping that it will clear up in the next week or two. A number of players have been suffering with the bug as Elliott Hewitt missed the games against Swansea City and Barnet. Alan Smith and Lewis Alessandra, meanwhile, both sat out the trip to the Hive, and Nolan has acknowledged that it's "going through the whole club" at present. "I've not been feeling great myself and Richard Thomas has been the same," Nolan told the official club site on Monday ahead of the Carlisle United fixture.
  5. Lewis Alessandra has stressed that Notts County will not lose focus over the busy festive period and will look to build on their Boxing Day 4-1 away win over Morecambe. The 28-year-old scored a goal in each half at the Globe Arena, along with Jorge Grant's brace, to help keep the Magpies entrenched in the top three, while Callum Lang claimed a late consolation for the hosts. Up next for Notts is the weekend trip to Swindon Town and the New Year's Day home game with Port Vale, and Alessandra says the players and staff are being "thoroughly professional" during this period. “I’ve
  6. Notts County have returned to winning ways in emphatic fashion with a 4-1 win over Morecambe at the Globe Arena. Kevin Nolan made four changes to his side, taking into consideration the glut of festive games and also injuries to Shola Ameobi and Jonathan Forte. Matt Tootle, Carl Dickinson, Terry Hawkridge and Ameobi - who started the 3-3 draw with Cambridge United - made way for Nicky Hunt, Dan Jones, Liam Walker and Lewis Alessandra. The opening stages of the Boxing Day game in Lancashire were cagey but Notts were soon up and running with a 13th-minute breakthrough. Former
  7. September 2017 is now over, but as foundations go, Notts County have laid some great ones over the month, with a huge six wins from their seven games. So who have been the standout Magpies players in September and how do they line up? Pride of Nottingham, alongside a selection of Notts County fans, have come together and, following much deliberations, drawn up a September starting XI. So to all those picked, well done and keep up the good work going into October and for the rest of the season! Goalkeeper: Adam Collin Left-back: Dan Jones Centre-back: Shaun Brisley

  9. Notts County have got their September off to an ideal start with a clean sheet and three points from a tough League Two fixture, winning 1-0 at newly relegated side Port Vale in Burslem. The prettiest game it was not. But the result is what counts, and Kevin Nolan's charges could not have asked for a better result, particularly given they played the latter stages of the game with ten men. Neither side managed to stamp their mark on the game in the first half, the only effort of note coming from David Worrall's strike on 24 minutes which cannonned off the woodwork. With Nolan opt
  10. We’re now 5 games into the season in all competitions and it is looking promising for Notts County. Having made a few additions in the summer with the window still yet to close, here is my opinion on the signings we have made so far and what they can bring to the squad this season. So far with the transfer window closing on August 31, Notts have made 13 signings. In depth 2 being goalkeepers, 4 defenders, 5 midfielders and 2 forwards. Within the 13 signings 2 of these are loan players from the other side of the Trent. Jorge Grant was a fan favourite last season having signed for
  11. Kevin Nolan has expressed his relief with Notts County clawing out a 4-2 win at Wycombe Wanderers after being pegged back from a two-goal lead. A Richard Duffy header and an Adam El Abd own goal saw the Magpies head into the Adams Park dressing rooms at the break in an advantageous position. However, the Chairboys hit back through Nick Freeman and Joe Jacobson, only for Jonathan Forte and Lewis Alessandra to restore County's two-goal lead late on. “Relief is a big word because Gareth (Ainsworth, Wycombe boss) set his team up to come at us in the second half,” Nolan told the Nott
  12. 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
  13. Lewis Alessandra admits making the Notts County squad this season will require each player to be at their absolute best because of the competition for places. Following the Magpies' 3-0 defeat at Coventry City on Saturday, Kevin Nolan made eight changes for the League Cup game at Scunthorpe United. The new XI yielded a much improved performance which saw the League One Iron pushed all the way to penalties, though the Magpies sadly succumbed 6-5. Alessandra was one of several players who watched the game from the stands and the winger admits he faces a fight to regain his place i
  14. 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
  15. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County have "lots and lots of work to do on the training pitch", but is confident that they will get up to scratch come the start of the 2017-18 League Two season. The Magpies won their opening two games, against non-league opposition, but have fallen to defeats against Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic. Against the Latics, Notts took the lead in emphatic fashion through Lewis Alessandra but went on to lose through a Richard Duffy own goal and a Callum Lang close-range effort. “I was reasonably happy but I thought the manner of the goals we
  16. Kevin Nolan has asked Notts County fans to show "trust and patience" in him, his staff and Alan Hardy with regards to bringing players through the door. So far, the Magpies have recruited Lewis Alessandra, Terry Hawkridge and Dan Jones, with a number of other player signings in the pipeline and several other rumours. The relatively slow pace of progress in the transfer window has left some Notts fans disgruntled, especially with regards to nearby clubs like Mansfield Town who have been signing players willy-nilly. However, Nolan is confident with what's going on behind the scene
  17. Notts County have posted a video on their YouTube channel of new Magpies signings Lewis Alessandra, Terry Hawkridge and Dan Jones in the thick of the action as the team took on the Rolls Royce Leisure Select XI in their first friendly of the 2017/18 pre-season. Here's the video shared here on Pride of Nottingham - see for yourself how the new boys got on in Hucknall.

  18. Alan Hardy has reassured Notts County fans that the signings they have lined up will ensure that the team will "mean business" in League Two this season. So far, the Magpies have only recruited two players, Terry Hawkridge and Lewis Alessandra, while the owner himself has claimed that four more players will be taken on before the deadline. Some Notts fans have expressed concern over numerous issues, including the seemingly slow pace of recruitment and the desire for more than four players. However, Hardy says the quality of signings he hopes to get over the line will make the fa
  19. Kevin Nolan has reassured Notts County fans that the squad will be strengthened with players who will not only make the team competitive in League Two, but who will be at Meadow Lane for the full season. The Magpies have been relatively quiet in the transfer window so far, with Terry Hawkridge and Lewis Alessandra the only two acquisitions, although every player who was already on the books and offered a new deal has renewed their stay. Some fans have expressed concern at the lack of new blood in the team, with local rivals Mansfield Town signing a glut of new players, but Nolan insi
  20. Alan Hardy says he is happy to pay transfer fees for Notts County's targets, so long as it's within reason and fits with the club's financial structure. The Magpies owner funded the arrival of Lewis Alessandra on Friday when he agreed an undisclosed fee with Hartlepool United for the player. Alessandra was the second signing to arrive at Meadow Lane, after Terry Hawkridge's arrival from National League champions Lincoln City. "It is really important that we get the balance right between players that we pay fees for, those we sign on a free and those who will come on loan," he sa
  21. Notts County's latest signing Lewis Alessandra feels his instincts told him he will be successful with Notts after he became the clubs second signing of the summer. The Magpies secured the services of the wide-man from Hartlepool United on a two-year deal after fending off serious competition from Port Vale and successfully agreeing terms for a five-figure fee for his services. Alessandra says he is also keen to experience success at the club and believes he has found the right club in order to fulfil his ambitions. "We've just got to start the season well and go from there, you
  22. According to The Post Notts are set to give former Hartlepool winger Lewis Alessandra a medical. The 28-year-old seems to be quite the experienced winger, with spells with notable clubs such as Plymouth and Rochdale. What do you make of this? Discuss below.

A graduate of Oldham Athletic's academy, the skilful forward - who scored a number of stunners during the last campaign had attracted interest from a number of clubs. However, Magpies boss Kevin Nolan has won the race for his signature and he now becomes Notts' second signing o
