I won’t lie to you, it felt nothing short of brilliant to see Notts County listed on Sky Sports News this morning as a League One club!
This morning’s fixture list could hardly have gone much better in the grand scheme of things. Both the first and last fixtures are at Meadow Lane and the club gets to celebrate it’s 100th year at Meadow Lane. Not bad in the slighest.
From my own point of view, it’s a mixed bag. Had the fixtures with Bristol Rovers and Swindon Town been dated a little more conveniently i’d have been able to get to them, but it’s no biggy. I do get to take in the side’s last away game of the season at MK Dons on my doorstep.
Plus, we again welcome Rochdale to Meadow Lane. This year’s Boxing Day fixture is bound to give off an electric atmosphere taking into account last season’s exploits.
The first fixture of the season is Huddersfield, the perfect visitors to kick the season off. The team will want to kick off against strong opposition to measure themselves for the season ahead so it’s a great start!
