  1. Kevin Nolan has suggested that Notts County's transfer dealings this summer are not yet finished and may still add a few more players before deadline day if they're good enough. Following a slow start to the transfer window this off-season, the Magpies have made a spate of signings, both permanent and on loan. Whilst it would seem that the Notts squad is now big enough, Nolan pointed back to last January, when more additions were brought in on deadline day. “I am sure we will be dipping in and out of the window before it shuts at the end of August,” Nolan told the Nottingham Pos
  2. Notts County have announced three signings in one fell swoop on Monday evening with Branislav Pindroch, Pierce Bird and Callum Saunders all putting pen to paper on deals at Meadow Lane. Pindroch is the first Slovakian to be on the books at Notts - born in the central city of Banska Bystrica, the 25-year-old came through the ranks at FK Dukla Banska Bystrica before joining Czech club MFK Karvina in 2013. The goalkeeper had been on trial with the Magpies and came off the bench during the recent friendly against Nottingham Forest. Defender Bird, meanwhile, had also tried out for No
  3. Notts County have completed the double signing of midfielder Elliot Hodge and defender Nicky Hunt. Hodge, 21, is the son of former Nottingham Forest and England midfielder Steve Hodge, and previously spent time as an apprentice at Meadow Lane. Hunt, meanwhile, was signed by Kevin Nolan during his spell in charge at Leyton Orient and the pair were also teammates at Bolton Wanderers early on in their careers. Speaking about Hodge, Nolan told the Nottingham Post: “Everyone who has spoken to me about Elliott has been asking when we’re going to sign him. "We had an agreement wit
  4. 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
  5. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan and assistant Richard Thomas have given their reaction to the pre-season friendlies against Carlton Town and York City. In the local friendly, overseen by Nolan, the hosts took a first-half lead through Robbie McNicholas but Jon Stead equalised from the penalty spot. At Bootham Crescent, meanwhile, Pierce Bird struck late on to give the Thomas's Magpies squad the win after Liam Walker and Jon Parkin had the game on a knife edge. Nolan told the official website: "All in all I am delighted to have got another 90 minutes into the lads' legs because
  6. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has claimed that new goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons "can push Adam Collin for the number one spot". The 23-year-old, who came through the ranks at Crystal Palace and also counts Bolton Wanderers among his former clubs, penned a deal at Meadow Lane on Thursday. Nolan told the official club site: "Ross has a lot of great attributes and we think we can work with him to make him even better. "He had a good season with Chelmsford last year and getting back into the EFL is a huge boost for him. We believe he can push Adam Collin for the number one spot.
  7. Kevin Nolan has urged Notts County to be "nastier" when not in possession of the ball. The Magpies boss was referring to his side's 2-1 defeat to Wigan Athletic on Saturday, where they squandered a 1-0 half-time lead. Nolan believed that Notts allowed the Latics to make their way up the pitch with too much ease, and wants this to change - within the laws of the game. “There were a lot of positives when we are in possession, but I still think we could get better without it,” he told the Nottingham Post. “I just think we have got to get a bit nastier. We pressed a lot against
  8. Jorge Grant has expressed his delight at donning a Notts County shirt again and says he is close to peak fitness as the new season draws ever closer. The Nottingham Forest midfielder secured his second loan move at Meadow Lane on Thursday, and is hoping to build on his impressive spell in the second half of last season. Grant picked up a thigh complaint while training with his parent club but managed to get 45 minutes under his belt in the 2-1 defeat to Wigan Athletic on Saturday. “I was buzzing to be back out there and back in the shirt again,” the 22-year-old told the Nottingh
  9. 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
  10. Kevin Nolan believes his Notts County side "more than matched" Wigan Athletic, but admits work needs to be done regarding the Magpies' defending. Saturday's pre-season friendly at Meadow Lane saw Lewis Alessandra give Notts the lead in emphatic fashion, but a Richard Duffy own goal and a Callum Lang strike gave the Latics the win. Nolan told the official site: "Throughout the 90 minutes we more than matched them and made a lot of chances. "But the manner in which we gave away the goals was frustrating and the lads know that. "We are still two weeks away [from the start of t
  11. Kevin Nolan has hailed each and every one of his players in the Notts County dressing room, saying they have been "absolutely fantastic since day one" of pre-season. The Magpies gaffer has overseen three pre-season games so far, with routine wins over Rolls Royce Leisure and Basford United followed up by a defeat to Nottingham Forest. Now preparing for his penultimate friendly of the 2017/18 programme, at home against Wigan Athletic this weekend, he aims to iron out the flaws in his side's game from the Reds clash. "They will be on the up there with Paul [Cook] and Leam [Richard
  12. With each passing day, we edge ever closer to the first fixture of the 2017/18 season - less than three weeks to go now, in fact. Things are hotting up in pre-season too. Notts County have got the two "straightforward" friendlies out of the way, the ones effectively to get the players up to scratch physically and mentally, and now come the ones which are a little more "showpiece". Starting on Wednesday with Nottingham Forest visiting Meadow Lane, which will also be the first time in the 2017/18 programme that the Black and White Army will be taking their seats at home. Now, this
  13. Kevin Nolan has given his assessment of Notts County's performance in their pre-season friendly against Basford United, describing himself as "reasonably pleased". The Magpies won 2-0 at Greenwich Avenue on Saturday, as Dan Jones opened the scoring when his free kick found its way through a crowded penalty area and into the net. Notts then doubled before the break when midfielder Alex Howes skinned his man and slotted beyond the Basford keeper. A reasonably straightforward afternoon was however hampered y an injury to Curtis Thompson in the second half, as he felt a slight twea
  14. It's been a long two months since the end of the 2016/17 season, hasn't it? But fear not, because Notts County are in action again as of this weekend! The Magpies' pre-season preparations are fully underway and the players will take to the pitch for the first time in 2017/18 when they take on Linby Colliery Welfare at Rolls Royce Leisure tomorrow. Then there will be a pre-season friendly every following Saturday, after which the season gets underway on the first weekend - oh, plus the small matter of a fixture against a local team by the name of Nottingham Forest on Wednesday 19th Ju
