  1. Shola Ameobi has stressed that he and other senior members of the Notts County contingent must "set the tone" for the rest of the squad. The veteran striker has experience playing at the top level for Newcastle United and at international level for Nigeria. Ameobi is one of several such players and coaches at Meadow Lane, with Kevin Nolan, Mark Crossley, Jon Stead and Alan Smith also enjoying playing careers at the top level. All must play their part in helping the rest of the Magpies squad handle the pressure of the League Two promotion battle, says Ameobi. “We have player
  2. Former Cheltenham Town captain John Finnigan has made the astonishing claim that Notts County youth players would eat pieces of paper with their Nottingham Forest counterparts' names on them. The 41-year-old made the claim in a column for Gloucestershire Live ahead of Tuesday night's rescheduled League Two clash between the Magpies and Cheltenham Town at Whaddon Road. Finnigan, who came through the ranks at the City Ground, wrote: "Memories of living in Nottingham will come flooding back to me on Tuesday night when ex-Forest goalkeeper Mark Crossley arrives as part of manager Kevin N
  3. Notts County coach Mark Crossley has revealed how Cardiff City have allowed the Magpies to use their training facilities ahead of tonight's FA Cup fourth-round meeting with Swansea City. The first game finished 1-1 at Meadow Lane which meant a replay at the Liberty Stadium for a place in the fifth round and a trip to Sheffield Wednesday. Cardiff are now hoping to see their bitter South Welsh rivals beaten at the second attempt and Crossley says the Bluebirds are paying back a favour. “Our chairman owns Ilkeston Town and Cardiff used their ground before their FA Cup tie at Mansfi
  4. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan, assistant Richard Thomas and coach Mark Crossley observed a Nottingham Panthers training session today and sat down for a chat with head coach Corey Neilson. The Nottingham Post reports that Thomas had been keen to take in a Panthers practice after coming to watch a game with Crossley earlier this season. Neilson, Nolan and the Notts coaches spoke at length about coaching methods, similarities between ice hockey and footbal, and more. “I had a nice chat to them. We spoke for about an hour in my office after the training session,” Neilson told th
  5. Ross Fitzsimons has praised Notts County goalkeeping coach Mark Crossley for helping him develop as a player. The 23-year-old, who joined the Magpies in the summer, has won plaudits after several impressive displays in between the sticks following the knee injury to Adam Collin. Fitzsimons replaced Collin in the win over Barnet before starting in the defeat to Crewe Alexandra and in the draw at Carlisle United, where he made a string of great saves to keep the hosts at bay. "I don't think we could ask for a better keeper coach," Fitzsimons told the official Notts site. "He's pla
  6. Alan Hardy has revealed that he was more excited about Kevin Nolan winning September's League Two Manager of the Month award than the man himself was. The Notts County boss was rewarded for a near-perfect September, with six wins out of seven and an ascent to the top of the table, with the EFL accolade. As well as praising Nolan's humility and selflessness, Hardy also gave an insight into some of the gaffer's managing techniques. Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post: "I think I was more excited than he was about this outstanding achievement which was just reward for the team’s mag
  7. Kevin Nolan has revealed that he will continue to assess Sheffield United striker Jake Wright, depending on what the diagnosis is on a potential hand injury. The 20-year-old, who shares the same name as the seasoned defender at Bramall Lane, played in the 1-1 draw with Carlton Town, but was taken off in the second half after an awkward landing. “Mark Crossley has a good link with the Sheffield clubs so we had (Wright) over with us for the last week,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “Unfortunately he took a bad knock to his hand so we had to send him for an X-ray. “But I’ve
  8. Michael O'Connor will be shadowing Notts County manager Kevin Nolan and the other coaches to gain knowledge and experience ahead of doing his UEFA A Licence next year. The Magpies captain is currently out of action as he recovers from a serious knee injury suffered earlier this year at the hands of Portsmouth. He has not put a timescale on his recovery, as it still appears to be a lengthy road back, but in the meantime, he will also be gaining valuable information about the coaching side of the game. O'Connor told the official Notts website: "I'm going to shadow the gaffer, Mark
  9. Dan Jones has claimed that the high calibre of the Notts County backroom staff is conducive to players' progress. The defender is back for a second spell with the Magpies, this time as a permanent signing after initially spending time on loan at Meadow Lane in 2009. Jones insists that the working with the likes of Kevin Nolan, Alan Smith and Mark Crossley - all of whom players in the Premier League - along with their colleagues, is exciting and educational in equal measure. He told the official site: "You've only got to look at the manager's career - how can you not respect that
  10. Alan Hardy has spoken of the new indoor training facilities at Notts County, describing them as Championship quality and hoping that they will play a part in attracting top talent to Meadow Lane. The Magpies chairman has funded the construction of a 4G pitch, changing rooms, a gym and a medical department which sits in the Family Stand. "I showed Kevin the facilities and he was absolutely blown away by what we have created," Hardy told the Nottingham Post. "He said it is Championship standard and that was great to hear. "Not only does it have a high performance gym and medical a
