  1. 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
  2. Pierce Bird has thanked fellow defenders Richard Duffy and Shaun Brisley for aiding his development at Notts County. The young centre-back, who joined the Magpies last year, is hoping to break into the first team at Meadow Lane this season after signing a two-year deal earlier this month. “They’ve been great with me and I could not have asked them to do a better job,” he told the Nottingham Post. “They help me when I need it and they tell me when I’ve done something wrong. They couldn’t have done any more. “Speaking to Duffs and Bris, they told me that talking is so importa
  3. Notts County defender Richard Duffy has signed a new contract with the club. The 32-year-old, who stood in as captain for the previously injured Michael O'Connor, made 50 appearances for the Magpies. Duffy joined Notts in the summer of 2016 and has made 97 appearances in total for the club. "The club has come on leaps and bounds in the last 18 months," the Welshman told the official website. "We've given ourselves a really strong foundation to build from in 2018-19 and I want to be part of that. "It will be my third season at Notts and it feels like home now." Not
  4. Coventry City manager Mark Robins has claimed that Tom Davies is not a cheat despite appearing to stamp on Richard Duffy and kicking out at Jonathan Forte during Saturday's League Two playoff semi-final first leg. Referee Gavin Ward, who awarded a completely ludicrous penalty to the Sky Blues late on at the Ricoh Arena for a 1-1 draw, did not see either of the incidents, meaning he cannot put it in his report. However, the FA can take retrospective action should they deem it necessary, meaning Davies could be at risk of a ban for the return leg at Meadow Lane on Friday night. “I
  5. Richard Duffy has praised teammate Jonathan Forte for his "fantastic" form in recent games and was delighted with his goal for Notts County against Coventry City. The 31-year-old, who has found himself frozen out of the first team on numerous occasions this season, opened the scoring at the Ricoh Arena with a deft flick from Dan Jones's cross. Notts were well on their way to victory until Coventry won a ludicrous penalty and drew level late on for a final score on the night of 1-1, but Duffy was eager to pay tribute to his teammate. “Since he’s come back into the team he’s been
  6. Richard Duffy has credited Notts County with helping to improve his “dire” goalscoring record. In addition, the defender believes that the Magpies’ impressive set-piece game is why they are soaring in League Two. Duffy scored his third goal of the season in the 3-1 win at Colchester United at the weekend, giving them another priceless three points in their hunt to consolidate a top seven place. “I’ve got three goals, and before I came here last season my goalscoring record was pretty dire really,” the Welshman told the Nottingham Post. “I scored four last season and and add
  7. Richard Duffy has stressed that Notts County are not giving up the fight for automatic promotion from League Two. The Magpies are three points behind the Chairboys - who take on Lincoln City at Sincil Bank tonight - in the race for a top-three spot. Notts are hoping for a favour from the Imps, who will move back into the playoff positions themselves if they can overcome Gareth Ainsworth’s side, and Duffy commented on how he sees his side going forward. “We can’t give it up and at this stage of the season you don’t want to be throwing games away,” the Notts captain told the Notti
  8. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has described Richard Duffy as his "most outstanding" player of the season and claims that "people giving him stick don’t know too much about football". The defender has flattered to deceive on many occasions this season but put in a good performance as the Magpies ran out 2-1 winners over League Two promotion rivals Coventry City at Meadow Lane. In recent weeks, some fans have been calling for Duffy to be dropped in favour of a central defensive partnership consisting of Shaun Brisley and Ben Hall. Nolan, however, says the former Wales internationa
  9. Notts County defenders Richard Duffy and Carl Dickinson visited Robin Hood Primary School in Nottingham as part of the Football In The Community-led +Sport Move and Learn Project. The programme, delivered in partnership with The English Football League Trust and Ferrero, is a free school-based educational programme for primary school children. It seeks to encourage physical activity, promote nutritional education and build awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and active lifestyle among youngsters. In a Q&A session, the school children asked the two players about the
  10. Richard Duffy has stressed that Notts County's weekend meeting with Mansfield Town will bring "a totally different kind of pressure". The two Nottinghamshire rivals will lock horns at Meadow Lane early on Saturday afternoon, both eager to get three points to boost their automatic promotion ambitions. Last time they faced off in Nottingham, Kevin Nolan had just taken over at County as he set about trying to stave off relegation from League Two. “You look and read things like any normal person. You can’t look too far ahead because it will bite you on the bum,” he told the Nottingh
  11. Notts County have claimed a much-needed three points in a 2-0 win over Stevenage in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. Jorge Grant came off the bench to open the scoring on 77 minutes, with Shola Ameobi adding a second three minutes later to make sure of victory. The opening stages of the game brought about opportunities for both sides as Luke Amos bundled the ball into the side netting and Ben Hall sent an effort over the Boro bar. Ben Kennedy and John Goddard then tested Adam Collin with tentative chances, while at the other end Elliott Hewitt headed over from Ter
  12. Kevin Nolan has provided an injury update on several players ahead of Notts County's home game against Port Vale on New Year's Day. Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy will face late fitness tests, while Rob Milsom will have to see a specialist. The four players did not take part in Saturday's 1-0 loss at Swindon Town and, while Milsom is definitely out, it will be a case of taking it "day by day" with the other three. Nolan also provided updates on goalkeeper Adam Collin, who is now "a couple of weeks away" from a return, and captain Michael O'Connor, who is now back
  13. Shaun Brisley has admitted that he is thoroughly enjoying his time at Notts County and believes his decision to leave Carlisle United has been justified. The 27-year-old left Brunton Park in the summer to join Kevin Nolan - with whom he worked at Leyton Orient - at Meadow Lane. Brisley has established himself as a mainstay of the Notts defence, putting in impressive performances week in, week out and helping the Magpies to the upper echelons of League Two. "It wasn't going to be an easy choice to leave Carlisle, who made the play-offs last season," Brisley told the official Nott
  14. Kevin Nolan has expressed his wholehearted support for Richard Duffy after the Notts County captain conceded a penalty at Yeovil Town on Tuesday night. The Magpies had edged ahead through Jonathan Forte at Huish Park but were pegged back after Duffy brought down Francois Zoko in the area and the ex-Notts forward converted from the spot for a 1-1 final result. Nolan admits that the Welshman was upset with himself over the decision, but said such slip-ups happen and insisted that the defender's positive contributions over the course of the season have been plentiful. “Richard was
  15. Winning football games is never the easiest thing to achieve. However, when you do manage to pull it off, it restores a sense of pride, not just within the club and its players but it spreads within the fan community. The momentum it builds can be a very powerful psychological tool, which I believe is a part of why Notts County have managed to assert themselves strongly after the opening day defeat to Coventry City. It’s been a long time since the club has felt like it’s moving in the right direction, and I believe we should continue to aim high. Another aspect which only deserv
  16. Richard Duffy has acknowledged that Notts County must raise their game on Saturday at Carlisle United given how opposition teams will do the same against a team high up in the table. The Magpies have been one of the pace setters over the last two months, twice going top of the League Two standings, and currently sit second going into the weekend's encounter at Brunton Park. With Carlisle 15th in the standings and having won just one of seven home games, Duffy has spoken of turning it into a "horrible game" for the hosts and cause the crowd to get exasperated with their team. "Th
  17. August is over and done with, Notts County's first month of the season is now just a memory, and we move on to September's fixtures with the Magpies nicely nestled in seventh place in League Two. However, much like any other job where its employees are routinely recognised and rewarded, it's worth recognising the players who have impressed in the black and white in August. Jorge Grant has already been named the player of the month by Notts County, the fans picking him head and shoulders over everyone else (64.8 percent compared to second-placed Terry Hawkridge with 20.1 percent).
  18. Kevin Nolan has expressed his relief with Notts County clawing out a 4-2 win at Wycombe Wanderers after being pegged back from a two-goal lead. A Richard Duffy header and an Adam El Abd own goal saw the Magpies head into the Adams Park dressing rooms at the break in an advantageous position. However, the Chairboys hit back through Nick Freeman and Joe Jacobson, only for Jonathan Forte and Lewis Alessandra to restore County's two-goal lead late on. “Relief is a big word because Gareth (Ainsworth, Wycombe boss) set his team up to come at us in the second half,” Nolan told the Nott
  19. Notts County have triumphed in a topsy-turvy, nervy and ultimately thrilling game against Wycombe Wanderers, claiming a 4-2 win at Adams Park. The Magpies threatened early on through Shaun Brisley, whose far post header was cleared off the line by Michael Harriman. Notts then took the lead after just 14 minutes, a pinpoint Dan Jones free kick falling perfectly to Richard Duffy, who made no mistake with a thumping header into the back of the Chairboys net. Kevin Nolan's charges promptly doubled their advantage in comical fashion just a minute later, as Luke O'Nien's clearance hit
  20. 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 replacin
  21. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has confirmed that Richard Duffy will captain the team this coming season. With skipper Michael O’Connor out until next year, the Magpies boss has given the armband to the Welsh defender, who penned a new contract in the summer after originally agreeing to write off a clause in his contract guaranteeing him a year’s deal. “Duffer stepped in as captain when Michael got injured last season and he was a great deputy,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He leads on the pitch and he’s been fantastic in pre-season leading the boys. “Since I came into the
  22. 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
  23. Kevin Nolan has earmarked Callum Saunders and Dean Hodge as two Notts Country trialists that he will take a closer look at in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, Magpies defender Richard Duffy has had good words to say about Pierce Bird. Speaking about Saunders and Hodge, Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "I've know Dean (Saunders) a while now and he's a good fella. "Some of Callum's movement was really sharp in the game on Saturday. I thought he could have done better with his one on one, and I think he will be disappointed with himself too. "Elliott did himself no harm at all eith
  24. Richard Duffy has praised Basford United for giving Notts County a tough game in Saturday's pre-season friendly at Greenwich Avenue, but admits that the game was only really about getting match fit. An own goal following a Dan Jones free kick and a strike from Alex Howes in the first half helped Kevin Nolan's side claim a 2-0 win over the Evo-Stik Division One South outfit. The Magpies boss fielded a different team in each half, which saw trialists goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimmons, defender Pierce Bird and striker Callum Saunders all given a run-out. "In the first half they had a cou
  25. Notts County have confirmed that Richard Duffy has extended his stay at Meadow Lane. The 31-year-old joined the club from Eastleigh last summer and, following a mixed start to his Magpies career, ended up thriving under Kevin Nolan. Duffy also endeared himself to Nolan after agreeing to remove a clause in his contract that guaranteed him another year's deal if he played a certain amount of games. He went on to score four goals in 47 appearances and took over as captain following the injury to Michael O'Connor as Notts survived in League Two with several matches to space. Du
