  1. I had a wheelbarrow We love you county Judge will tear you apart Always s*it on the red side of the trent Forever and ever Sirrel, Sirrel, Sirrel There's only one Jimmy Sirrel Please help us to add this, I hope we can try to help people learn the chants to make us more vocal! (worth the try)
  2. If you begin the video of Sir Charlie Palmer's goal against Nottingham Forest tonight at 11:59:24, his header will hit the back of the Reds net at exactly midnight. Start the New Year right!
  3. On this day 23 years ago, Notts County found themselves playing at Wembley for the second season in a row and the fourth time in the decade when they took on Ascoli in the Anglo-Italian Cup final. Having enjoyed Wembley glory in 1990 and 1991, winning the Third Division playoff final and then its Second Division counterpart, the Magpies then fell flat in 1994 when they fell to a 1-0 loss to a Georghe Hagi-inspired Brescia. However, they would be back once again just a year later against Ascoli, who boasted Germany star Oliver Bierhoff in their ranks. In the 1995 showpiece, Notts
  4. Today, 12 February 2019, marks 25 years since the last time Notts County met Nottingham Forest in the league, and more crucially, the last time the Magpies beat the Reds. Christened Sir Charlie Palmer Day, the result in that Division One (that's second tier for all you young'uns) game at Meadow Lane was 2-1 to Notts, with the winner coming just four minutes of time through Charlie Palmer. Magpies star Gary McSwegan opened the scoring in the 55th minute after tricking his way past Steve Chettle, cutting inside Colin Cooper and slotting into the bottom corner. With just six minute
  5. On 20 November 1976, Notts County clinched an impressive 5-1 win over a Fulham outfit featuring Bobby Moore, George Best and Rodney Marsh in a Second Division match at Craven Cottage. Mick Vinter struck for the Magpies after just 45 seconds and went on to grab a second later in the game, while Steve Carter, Martin Busby and Ernie Howe (with an own goal) made it five before the hour mark. Although Alan Slough managed to grab a consolation, it was still a very impressive result from Ron Fenton's side. Here are the highlights from that game if you fancy having a look. Were you at t
  6. Can't believe it's been a whole six years since that titanic encounter at the City Ground between Nottingham Forest and Notts County. Honestly remember it as if it were yesterday. One of those games where, even in defeat, you can't help but applaud your team. Very much like last night against Scunthorpe, to be fair, but the added element of the local rivalry just made it so much more intense. Here are the highlights of that game.
  7. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. The Magpies considerably strengthened their ranks over the summer with several high-profile signings rocking up at the club so the hope was of hitting the ground running against somewhat mediocre opposition. It didn't go that way though, with both sides looking rusty in the first League Two game of the campaign, and the outcome was a share of the spoils and a clean sheet apiece. Nathan Thomas came close when he controlled on the edge of the

  9. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. The Magpies considerably strengthened their ranks over the summer with several high-profile signings rocking up at the club so the hope was of hitting the ground running against somewhat mediocre opposition. It didn't go that way though, with both sides looking rusty in the first League Two game of the campaign, and the outcome was a share of the spoils and a clean sheet apiece, which is better than a loss I guess. Nathan Thomas came close w
  10. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. Although the U's appeared the brighter of the two sides at the off, the Magpies almost took a fourth-minute lead through debutant Enzio Boldewijn. The Dutchman was able to let rip with a low shot from a good position but visiting goalkeeper Dillon Barnes was able to palm the effort behind for a corner. But Colchester then threatened midway through the first half through Frank Nouble, whose header from Ryan Jackson's cross flashed inches wide
  11. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Richard Duffy will be Notts County's captain in Saturday's League Two opener against Colchester United. The defender held the armband for most of last season as Michael O'Connor was sidelined through a long-term injury. Now that O'Connor has left, Nolan has stated that Duffy will continue as skipper "for the foreseeable future" but says it's not a permanent appointment. “Richard Duffy will lead the team out on Saturday,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I haven’t made my mind up who is going to be the club captain yet. “Richard stepped in so we
  12. Alan Hardy has issued a call for more Notts County fans to get behind the team this upcoming season. The Magpies have invested heavily this summer following an above-expectations finish last term, qualifying for the playoffs. "A general rule of thumb is that if you get results right on the pitch, most other things will follow," Hardy wrote on the Notts website. "We've certainly seen that with major increases in supporters, hospitality sales, merchandise sales and other revenue streams. "I've lost count of the number of fans who have contacted me to say the atmosphere at the
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were punished for making “strange and sloppy” decisions in their 2-0 loss at Luton Town on Saturday. The Hatters secured a 2-0 win at Kenilworth Road through former Magpies loanee Jorge Grant and Elliott Lee. The latter scored from close range after Ross Fitzsimons failed to collect a header on the goal line following a corner. “I was a bit disappointed really in what we’ve been trying to do and what we’ve been about in pre-season,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I thought we were second best certainly in the second half. “In the
  16. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has stressed that each of his players will have a chance this weekend to earn a starting XI spot in their League Two opener against Colchester United. The first team travel to Luton Town on Saturday, while some senior players are also expected to feature at Carlton Town on Saturday in their final pre-season matches. The Magpies will open their campaign against the U's at Meadow Lane on August 4 and Nolan wants all of his charges to be "selfish" in their pursuit of a first-team berth. “There’s still plenty to play for,” Nolan told the official clu
  17. Notts County defender Ben Hall has tipped Kane Hemmings to have a good season as he admits he is the most difficult striker to deal with in training. Following last season's playoff near-miss, the Magpies set about bolstering their ranks with big money signings, Hemmings recruited from Oxford United for a six-figure sum. "I'd probably say Kane Hemmings is the toughest to mark at the moment with his movement. His hold up play is good too," Brighton loanee Hall told the Nottingham Post. "He was holding defenders off against Leicester so I think he'll be good for us." Hall als
  18. Sam Allardyce has admitted that he knew he would be criticised for leaving Notts County in 1999 for Bolton Wanderers but stated that it was an opportunity he couldn't miss and so had to be "selfish". In an interview published in "Record Breakers - The Inside Story of Notts County’s Momentous 1997/98 Title Win", the former Magpies boss was asked why he decided to up sticks. "I think I had to be selfish for myself," he replied. "There was a great affinity with the club and a great relationship that I had built. This opportunity came along where I had to be selfish for myself, and not f
  19. Kevin Nolan has spoken highly of Notts County academy product Dongda He and is confident of the club bringing through youngsters of high pedigree in the coming years. The Magpies have experienced a drought in talented academy players coming through the ranks to establish themselves in the senior team, with only Curtis Thompson and Haydn Hollis having made the breakthrough recently. However, with He looking like a real talent and the likes of Remaye Campbell, Pierce Bird, Alex Howes and new recruits Tom Crawford and Will Patching, the future is looking bright for those in black and wh
  20. Another weekend, another pre-season friendly, another seven notches on the calendar, another week closer to the start of the 2018-19 season. On Saturday, Notts County had the privilege of facing none other than the team that defied odds of 5,000-1 to win the Premier League title in undoubtedly the biggest fairy tale in sporting history, ever. Although Leicester City have not been able to mount another title challenge since the magical 2015-16, they nonetheless enjoyed a superb Champions League run in 2016-17 and finished in the top half of the table last time out. But obviously
  21. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has thanked club owner Alan Hardy for his backing in the transfer market although he has not shut the door on another recruit should the opportunity arise. The Magpies have enjoyed a superb summer in terms of transfers, bringing in several high profile signings including Kane Hemmings, Kristian Dennis, Enzio Boldewijn, David Vaughan and Andy Kellett. Speaking after the loss to Leicester City, Nolan said he is delighted with the business made so far but, echoing prior comments made by Hardy, added that he will keep his eyes open for particularly except
  22. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has claimed that his players will learn a lot from their second 4-1 loss in a row in Saturday's pre-season friendly loss to Leicester City. Lewis Alessandra gave the Magpies the lead but, despite putting in a much improved performance to the game against Derby County last week, the Foxes struck back through Wes Morgan, Hamza Choudhury, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani. "There was lots of good stuff to come out of it," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "We played some really good stuff at times. "We expected the quality they brought. I've just said to th
  23. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were like "rabbits in the headlights" when they had possession against Derby County and wants more confidence from them ahead of the Leicester City friendly. The Magpies lost 4-1 against the Rams last week and Nolan gave a scathing assessment of his players, and although he admitted that they've been put through their paces this week, he wants a better performance on Saturday. “I am looking for them to be tighter and that they don’t switch off as much,” he told the Nottingham Post. “But they’ve had a tough week and they will be playing
  24. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has revealed that Kristian Dennis is in line for his first pre-season appearance this weekend. The forward, who scored 21 goals for Chesterfield last season, missed the Magpies' opening three friendlies due to injury. However, Dennis is now back to fitness and Nolan says he will be involved against Leicester City on Saturday at Meadow Lane. "He's back," Nolan told the official club website. "We were gutted when we realised he wasn't going to be with us for the last week or two but he's come back and really had a good go. "He's settled i
  25. Notts County will take on Doncaster Rovers, Grimsby Town and Newcastle United's academy side in the group stage of the EFL Trophy. The Magpies have been placed in Group G of the competition’s Northern section. The 48 EFL clubs have been placed into pre-determined groups, with consideration given to ensure travel time is minimised for supporters and recovery time is maximised for players. Players from EFL clubs who are out on loan in the National League and below are now eligible to feature in the competition. Meanwhile, invited teams have been restricted to fielding two pla
