Leyton Orient midfielder Charley Barker will reportedly play in a friendly match for Notts County on Tuesday, according to Gloucestershire Live. The 19-year-old recently spent time on trial at Cheltenham Town, making three appearances for their reserve team. According to the local outlet, Barker is unlikely to feature in the Robins' Central League fixture at Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday, with County keen to have a look at him. Barker is on the books of the National League side as a third year scholar, but is believed to be attracting interest from several Football League clubs. Orient boss Justin Edinburgh is quoted by Gloucestershire Live as saying: “Charley has been made aware he will not be getting a pro deal at Leyton Orient. "So what we are trying to do is give him and others an opportunity to get ahead of the game and try to secure themselves a contract elsewhere." Magpies boss Kevin Nolan spent time in charge of Orient in 2016 and his assistant Richard Thomas was Barker's youth team coach at the East London club.

New Notts County signing Nicky Hunt has expressed his delight at linking up with former teammate Kevin Nolan at Meadow Lane. The veteran defender, most recently on the books at Leyton Orient - where he played under Nolan - played alongside him at Bolton Wanderers and signed for Notts on Tuesday alongside young midfielder Elliot Hodge. Hunt told the official club site: "I'm delighted to sign here. It's a great club and I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead. "When Kev gives you a ring you know what he's all about and it's fantastic for me to join up with him again. "I've known him since I was 17 and he's a good friend of mine. His work ethic's tremendous, which is key to success especially in the lower leagues. "There's a great group here with a mixture of experienced and young lads. I've been very impressed with the players that are here."

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has spoken of how happy he is working at a club on an upward trajectory and with a supportive chairman. One of Alan Hardy's first major moves since taking over the Magpies was to replace John Sheridan with Nolan, whose only previous managerial experience came at Leyton Orient. The decision to bring Nolan in has paid dividends as he has masterminded a complete turnaround in form at Meadow Lane, taking the club from the brink of relegation to almost-confirmed safety in just two months. In comparison, Orient look doomed as they lurch from one crisis to the other, switching managers at a regular rate, and Nolan has described the hotseat at the East London club as "impossible". Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "The (Orient) job is just unmanageable. People will ask if it's impossible and I would say, 'yeah'. You've seen how many managers have gone through the door now and it's constantly revolving. "It will be like that while (owner Francesco Becchetti) is in charge. It's ridiculous to not give Danny (Webb, their last manager, who resigned on Friday) an environment to thrive in. He just hasn't learned from his mistakes. "This time last year he was sacking me this week. There were seven or eight games remaining, and the team had a chance of making the play-offs, but he decided to go down a different route. "Everyone just asked 'why?' because everybody inside the club knew it was the wrong thing to do except him. That was what you were dealing with and I feel so sorry for the good people behind the scenes. You fear for them because jobs are on the line as the club look to be facing relegation. "I am just glad to have got somewhere that's a fantastic environment to thrive in. I've a boss who is going on a journey and he's picked me to go with him. I am delighted to be here, and I will give it 110 percent. "And if I do have a tough point in my career here, which is going to happen at some point, I know the first person behind me will be the chairman. "That's what makes this job easier but makes me want to be successful so much more for him as well as me. "Them partnerships and relationships I have, I am going to need them to lean on. I will need a smiling face when it's not going as well as it should be. "I am just so delighted to be here and we will continue the process of turning baby steps into long strides so we'll be up, up and away."

Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has expressed sadness at the plight of former club Leyton Orient. The 34-year-old was appointed as player-manager at Brisbane Road in January 2016, but despite winning seven of his 15 games in charge, was downgraded to player when Andy Hessenthaler took the reins in April. A further three months passed before Nolan left the club altogether, and Orient's loss was County's gain as he has so far taken the Magpies from the brink of relegation to the brink of safety. Meanwhile, Orient have plunged into crisis under owner Francesco Becchetti, with the O's having been before the High Court over a tax debt to HMRC and all but consigned to the non-league next season. Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "I loved Orient and I am so gutted to see what is happening there now. "I am devastated for those involved, because there are a lot of good people there. What's happening is tragic. I hope they do bounce back if they do go down. "It's a tough league when you get relegated. It's just a sad, sad situation to see what's happening. "That's gone and it's in my past now and I can't worry about it. I can only wish them all the best and that's genuinely from my heart."

Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has hailed his side's 3-2 win at Leyton Orient as the end of their away hoodoo and something to build on. The Magpies took a two-goal lead through Jorge Grant and Jon Stead but were pegged back before Stead struck a late winner at Brisbane Road. It helped Notts climb further away from the League Two relegation zone and also marked a first away win since October. Nolan told the official site: "I'm pleased to end the hoodoo of not putting in performances away from home. We got our just rewards in the end thanks to some quality finishing. "We knew it was going to be tough. The response after they got it back to 2-2 shows the character and belief we have in the squad, which I'm delighted about. "The home supporters and the stadium were both rocking when they got their equaliser so it was about us managing the game and getting us back on the front foot, which the lads did fantastically well. "You always need a bit of brilliance and we got it from Marc Bola, who showed great composure to pick out Steady and if you give him that type of chance he will put it away. "We're on a three-game unbeaten run now and looking forward next Saturday's game at home to Yeovil."

The Alan Hardy and Kevin Nolan renaissance continues as Notts County put in a gutsy performance at Leyton Orient and, despite being pegged back, persevered and claimed a 3-2 win at Brisbane Road to gain further ground from the League Two relegation zone. Orient were already without Liam Kelly, who was banned for six games after pushing a Plymouth Argyle ballboy earlier in the week, and suffered a further setback when defender Tom Parkes was stretchered off with only eight minutes on the clock. The Magpies broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when Teddy Mezague failed to deal with a long goal kick from Adam Collin and Jorge Grant poked the ball past Sam Sargeant. Notts then went 2-0 up within three minutes of the beginning of the second half after Jon Stead beat Sargeant in the box and his touch went in off the bar. The O's, however, reduced the deficit within a minute when McCallum headed home after Nigel Atangana's header had struck the crossbar. Danny Webb's charges were back then on level terms when Mezague unleashed a powerful volley into the net from outside the penalty area with 10 minutes left. It was Notts who had the final word when, with six minutes left in the game, Marc Bola sent in a cross from the left and Stead drove the ball into the net to seal all three points.

Kevin Nolan has played down any special significance towards Notts County's weekend fixture at Leyton Orient, describing it as just another game. The 34-year-old began his managerial career at Brisbane Road in January last year as player-manager but was sacked by owner Francesco Becchetti in April despite his 47 percent win record. Saturday sees the Magpies gaffer take his side back to his old stomping ground for a relegation six-pointer, with just one point separating the 21st-placed side in League Two and the second-from-bottom O's. Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "I keep saying it every week, but it's just the next game for us. "I said to the players that there is not a massive importance because we are playing a team around us. But if we lose this one and then win three on the bounce then this game gets put to bed. "All we want is consistency, results and to start building a run of good form. We haven't been great away from home and that's something we are trying to put right. "Obviously there is a bit of history there regarding me and Orient, but that gets put to bed. And if we do our job we give ourselves a great chance of getting three points."
