  1. Kevin Nolan has admitted that letting Liam Walker leave Notts County was a tough decision but could not stand in his way after being given an opportunity to play elsewhere. The Gibraltar international left Meadow Lane on Monday having had his contract terminated by mutual consent, having made just 19 appearances this season and failing to make the squad altogether in recent weeks. "Liam got given an opportunity to go elsewhere," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "He rang the club and asked if he could go to pastures new and I didn’t want to stand in the lad’s way. "He’s been a fantastic pro and just didn’t get the opportunities he would have liked and that’s because I thought there were players ahead of him in the team. "He’s got great quality and I know wherever he goes he’ll do well because of the way he is. "I didn’t want to take that opportunity away from him because football’s a funny world and in two weeks’ time that opportunity might not have been there for him. "I had to make a tough decision and I think is for the best for Liam and for us moving forward. "I don’t know all the ins and outs of where he’s heading next, but I said for as long as he is here then he is more than welcome to come and use the facilities, and if he needs to train. "We can either put him with the lads or with the younger group. It was unfortunate for Liam because I think he expected a bit more than when he signed, but that’s the way football goes. "But I wish him well and good luck in the future because I believe he will go somewhere and succeed."

  2. Liam Walker has suggested that a lack of game time prompted him to make the decision to leave Notts County ahead of the end of the League Two season. The 30-year-old joined the Magpies last summer from Gibraltar Premier Division outfit Europa FC but made just 19 appearances in total, struggling to even make the bench in recent weeks. Notts confirmed the news of Walker's contract being terminated by mutual consent on Monday afternoon, stating that he had left "with immediate effect to pursue opportunities elsewhere". "Well my time at Notts County has come to an end," Walker wrote on social media. "It has been a hard season personally for me with the lack of game time and I have taken the decision to cancel my contract and move on. "I would just like to thank the fans and all those who did believe in me. Wish the club all the best for the future and good luck for the playoffs."

  3. Notts County have announced that Gibraltar international Liam Walker has left the club. The 30-year-old joined the Magpies last summer from Gibraltar Premier Division outfit Europa FC. Walker has made 19 appearances this season but has found himself on the fringes of the team and in recent weeks struggled even to make the bench. Notts confirmed the news of Walker's contract being terminated by mutual consent on Monday afternoon, stating that he had left "with immediate effect to pursue opportunities elsewhere". Manager Kevin Nolan also left a brief message for the midfielder. “Everyone at Meadow Lane would like to thank Liam for all his efforts this season," Nolan was quoted as saying. "We wish him all the best for the future.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  4. Notts County midfielder Liam Walker has written himself into Gibraltar's history as his late goal against Latvia gave the British Overseas Territory their first ever win as a FIFA nation. Gibraltar and Latvia faced off in a friendly on Sunday at Victoria Park, the first time the stadium hosted their country's football team in two years. The last game on the Rock was against the same opposition, on 29 March 2016, and the result on that day was a 5-0 hammering for Gibraltar. However, the small nation put in a much improved performance against the Baltic nation, which reached the finals of Euro 2004. Despite a number of setbacks for Gibraltar leading up into the game in terms of injuries, including one to star man Joseph Chipolina in the warm-up, Desi Curry's side were not to be thwarted. Walker, Gibraltar's record cap holder with 29, curled in a deflected free kick with 88 minutes on the clock to send the crowd into raptures and seal a 1-0 triumph. It was not only Gibraltar's second ever win as a UEFA nation (following their win over Malta in 2014), it was their first as a FIFA nation, their first success on home soil, and their first win for four years. And Walker is now his country's top scorer - with three goals!

  5. Notts County's season continues to go from strength to strength after a solid 1-0 win over Port Vale in Saturday's League Two fixture at Vale Park. Lewis Alessandra came on as a substitute and scored with his first touch of the game in the second half to edge the visitors ahead. The Valiants didn't offer much and, even with Shaun Brisley coming off injured and leaving the Magpies down to ten men having made all their substitutions, they still couldn't find a way back into the game. County's victory means that they are unbeaten in five games in all competitions (and if you were to specify it as "in the 90 minutes", then we drew with Scunthorpe United too, technically speaking!) and, in League Two, sit an impressive fifth in the table, with 10 points from five games. Here is some of the reaction from some of the Notts players, the manager, and the Black and White Army. Kevin Nolan "It wasn't the greatest spectacle but when you go away, get a clean sheet and a win it's just fantastic. And then you hear all the fans singing at the end, not remembering much from the game but knowing they've won! "Port Vale are under a bit of pressure so we knew they were going to come out all guns blazing and trying to put their stamp on the game. But I thought we rode that out well and didn't give them many opportunities. "Thankfully, when the chance came our way, Lewis was on hand to put it in the back of the net. We're absolutely delighted." The players Lewis Alessandra “Victories like this mean a lot when you’ve had to really work for it, as you could see by the reaction from the lads at the end of the game. “The big thing in this team is the togetherness. There are five or six captains which is really good for us, especially with the blend of youth in the team. “The manager has built a team full of great lads. We’re a tight-knit group and we enjoy working for each other. The camaraderie in the group is fantastic and, with regards to strength in depth, this is the best League Two side I’ve played in.” Jorge Grant Adam Collin Carl Dickinson Ryan Yates Liam Walker The fans (from PON's Port Vale match discussion thread) Liampie Brill result yesterday, its wins like this which will impact our final league position so i am delighted. Upthepies Good win but Port Vale could have easily got the victory themselves. In the first half they had a cracking chance which they wasted and the performance was not good enough. It was an awful game for both teams. Very scrappy. Ell100t Didn't get to see the match, but only needed to watch the highlights to see what an impact Dan Jones had on the game. Two moments of defensive brilliance. I know it is only one game, but personally I am very relieved with our start to the season as it doesn't feel like it is over before it has began for the first time in a while. Not getting too carried away, but just very thankful to finally see some more positivity around the players and the fans. Countyman Very uninspiring performance but the players kept at it and got the win. Port Vale don't look like much of a side in league two but I just hope nobody gets carried away. If we win a few or lose one, people just get all OTT. The Skipper Port Vale wasn't really bad they just looked like a team without any real ideas. They could have taken the win for themselves after two early chances which Collin saved and then Jones running back when they was clear through. I am not all that bothered about the performance because the training ground will sort that. At this stage its just good to get the points!

  6. 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 the Magpies in the January transfer window and was a key player to our survival last season. I think at the top of Alan Hardy’s and Kevin Nolan’s to-do list was to ensure this guy was playing for the Pies for the upcoming 2017-18 season. So, let’s start with the goalkeepers. We have brought in 2 goalkeepers going by the names of Ross Fitzsimons and Branislav Pindroch. Fitzsimons was on trial for us during pre-season and we acquired him from Chelmsford. He made his Notts debut against Scunthorpe in the Carabao Cup First Round. He looks to be a commanding individual with good communication amongst his defenders. He looks to be our number 2 this year with Pindroch looking like backup. With the defenders, most notably Shaun Brisley has joined the Pies on a free transfer from Carlisle United. Brisley so far has made 4 appearances scoring one goal. He has shown real determination and looks a real solid addition alongside Richard Duffy. Other defender signings include Nicky Hunt from relegated Leyton Orient who was part of Nolan’s squad at his short stint at The O’s. Dan Jones was also recruited as a full back from Chesterfield, he slipped up big style against Coventry but has turned it around the past couple of games so I think we can write that off as a bad game for him. Finally, the Pies have recruited Pierce Bird who was unattached. Pierce looks to be a possible loan player in the future but I can see him having a long career here at Notts County. Moving onto the midfielders. With the 2016-17 season coming to a close in connection with most of the players contracts it was important to strengthen this area and boy has Nolan done that. We have recruited 5 midfielders - Jorge Grant and Ryan Yates the loanees from Nottingham Forest. Also, we have Elliot Hodge and Terry Hawkridge from Lincoln City. Terry looks to be a real gem so far with lots of pace and cutting in numerous times, this will really hurt weak teams in the league. The final midfielder recruited is Liam Walker. Liam has plenty of international experience with Gibraltar against teams such as Germany. Good solid central midfielder with good passing ability. Finally, the forwards, while offering new contracts to Stead and Ameobi with Forte still being under contract it looked like the area where least additions were needed. We have made 2 additions. One being up there for signing of the summer Lewis Alessandra from relegated Hartlepool United. So far, he has made 4 appearances for the Magpies scoring one goal and im almost 100% certain that this could reach double figures this season. As well as Alessandra, we have assigned Callum Saunders to the squad from Crewe Alexandra but looks to be a backup striker. So who is the summer signing so far? After seeing them in action in the league I am torn between Hawkridge and Grant but for me I think it has to be Grant. Sorry to follow the crowd but Grant is just class for our league. His ability to get in behind but also show flair and skill on the ball is fantastic to see at League 2. He is a game changer and has the ability to secure all 3 points on his own. However, he must learn from players like Stead and Ameobi and learn quickly that he does need the players around him to be the star of the show. Most questionable signing so far? Personally, I think Callum Saunders. I have never heard of him before and I do not know what he can bring to the team. Also at the moment I can’t see him replacing any of our first team strikers or even getting on the bench so it just baffles me while he is on the wage bill sitting in the reserves but im not a scout or coach so Nolan must see something. Let me know what you think about the star and most questionable signing of the summer so far. Can Notts improve any more areas or should we call it quits on our recruitment this summer?

  7. So Notts County midfielder Liam Walker is not happy after a challenge from Coventry captain Michael Doyle at the weekend. See for yourself! (Warning - it's a bit messy) . .. ... .... ..... ......
  8. 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 replacing him just yet. Matt Tootle has the right-back spot sewn up sweetly. If he avoids the injury problems he had last season he could play every league game. I don't expect Jordon Richards or Nicky Hunt to start much at all this season. The left-back spot is easy. Dan Jones will easily displace Carl Dickinson. The ex-Stoke man was very error-prone last season, especially when he consistently allowed opposition players into the box unchallenged. It was obvious we needed a new left-back and he needed to have pace, something Jones has and Dickinson doesn't. Centre-back has plagued us for a few seasons now. The last two especially where we conceded 83 in 15-16 and 76 in 16-17. For me Shaun Brisley has to start. He played in the Peterborough team that reached the League One playoffs a few years ago and we're crying out for stability at centre-half. Richard Duffy has been a lot better since Kevin Nolan came in. For me he beats Hollis to that first team spot alongside Brisley. Duffy, for me, was better under Nolan in the second the half of last season than Hollis was and is just a better player in my opinion. I would like to see Pierce Bird play a few games this season. He seems like a good prospect and someone who I think definitely has potential. Onto the wingers and for me it has to be Jorge Grant and Lewis Alessandra. Grant showed last season he is a quality player, especially for this level and has an abundance of creativity. He could very easily hit 10-15 goals for the 2017-18 season. Alessandra has much needed pace which Notts have been begging for, for a few seasons now. I think Nolan can get the best out of the former Hartlepool man. This pushes Terry Hawkridge to the bench but I still see him playing a key role in creating chances for the Magpies. There is also the option of playing these three together behind a lone striker. I don't see Elliot Hodge featuring regularly unless key players pick up injuries. Sam Osborne has great potential but isn't ready yet and a loan spell out to gain first team football is what he needs. Moving into the centre of the park, there are several options to choose from. Rob Milsom, Elliott Hewitt, Liam Walker, Curtis Thompson and Ryan Yates. It's obvious we will miss Michael O'Connor. As captain he led by example and played a massive part in Notts climbing the table. He formed a great partnership with Milsom and in my opinion, Milsom should keep his place in the starting eleven. He is good at pressing teams and is a neat and tidy passer and very calm in possession of the ball. In my opinion, Liam Walker should start alongside him. Walker is more of an attackive minded midfielder and his long shots and set pieces will be a danger to opposition teams. Elliott Hewitt is getting better by the day. He looks at home in the centre of midfield and moving him there from his right back slot could prove a solid decision. Ryan Yates is more of a box to box midfielder and when played, could be very useful in linking defence to attack. I don't see Curtis Thompson playing many games this season and his persistent injury problems haven't helped him at all. Alex Howes is a another player who I see getting loaned out to gain more first team experience. I don't expect a permanent central midfield pairing. I think Milsom, Hewitt, Walker and Yates will all have their turn in the starting XI. Finally, we move into the final third. Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi signed new contracts in the summer and unless we sign a striker before opening day then it will be them two starting up front. As a strike partnership, they have shown they can be effective but not spectacular. Ameobi is a very good player for holding the ball up and this can help bring other players into the game such as Grant and Alessandra as well as Stead. Despite being 6'3, Stead likes the ball more to his feet and Nolan is the first manager, since the ex-Huddersfield man joined Notts, to realise he isn't a target man. He has done very well to score 25 goals in the last two seasons but he is 34 and Ameobi is 35 and it's clear we need someone younger up front who can take us further up the table than my current prediction of 10th. For me we still need a striker if we're going to break into the play-off places. Jonathan Forte can be an asset but breaking into the first team next season will be difficult for him especially if we sign another striker. I prefer him as a striker to a winger but was utilised more as the latter last season but still managed 10 goals. Whilst he only scored 2 in 23 at Crewe, Callum Saunders looks like one for the future. I've heard that his movement is very good but he needs to work on his finishing. My starting XI for Coventry: Collin, Tootle, Duffy, Brisley, Jones, Grant, Milsom, Walker, Alessandra, Stead, Ameobi Squad GK - Adam Collin, Ross Fitzsimons, Branislav Pindroch, Joe Searson-Smithard RB - Matt Tootle, Jordon Richards, Nicky Hunt LB - Dan Jones, Carl Dickinson CB - Shaun Brisley, Richard Duffy, Haydn Hollis, Pierce Bird W - Jorge Grant (RM), Lewis Alessandra (LM,RM), Terry Hawkridge (RM,LM), Elliot Hodge (RM), Sam Osborne (RM) CM - Rob Milsom, Elliott Hewitt, Liam Walker, Curtis Thompson, Ryan Yates, Michael O'Connor (INJ), Alex Howes ST - Jon Stead, Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte, Callum Saunders Share your thoughts about this feature article on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  9. New Notts County midfielder Liam Walker has praised the club setup, describing the way it works as "top class". The 29-year-old, a Gibraltar international, signed a contract at Meadow Lane last week after having impressed during friendlies against Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic. Walker has also hailed the methods of Notts manager Kevin Nolan and thanked his new teammates for having welcomed him warmly to the club. "Ever since I walked into the club it seemed the way it works is top class," Walker, who has also played for Portsmouth, told the Nottingham Post. "I really like the way the gaffer operates in training. He talks to the players and tries to get the best out of everyone. "I've been really happy since day one and I'd like to thank the lads for welcoming me. "Once the deal was sorted I went straight back home, grabbed my gear and headed back over for the long term.

He also has 22 caps for the national team, scoring the nation's first goal in a competitive fixture during a 4-1 defeat against Greece in September 2016. Walker wrote on Twitter after the signing was confirmed by the Notts site: "Buzzing to have signed for @Official_NCFC looking forward to a big season ahead ️️ Also wish @EuropaFC_Gib best of luck for next season."

  12. Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County trialist Liam Walker and admits that he and his coaches will have discussions over the next few days over potentially offering the midfielder a contract. The 29-year-old, a Gibraltar international, represented Europa FC in his home nation and scored 15 goals in 26 appearances for them last season. In addition, Walker has played for Lincoln Red Imps and was part of the team that claimed a shock 1-0 win over Celtic in July 2016, and has also represented Portsmouth. Walker played in Wednesday’s defeat to Nottingham Forest and figured again in the 2-1 loss to Wigan Athletic on Saturday, and Nolan had kind words to say about him. “Liam did well again and we will have a chat with him over the next 24-48 hours,” he is quoted as saying by the Nottingham Post. “We will see where his head is at and see if something can be done. It’s another midfielder who can come in and push the lads who were here already. “I will talk to Thommo (Richard Thomas, assistant manager) and Norm (Mark Crossley, coach) as we’ve all been impressed with what we’ve seen. Then we will speak to Liam and his dad who has been over with him.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.
