On the back of another tumultuous season at Meadow Lane, Club Chairman Ray Trew must surely be hoping for a rest next season?
In one and a half seasons Mr Trew has already endured six managers, one league title, two fantastic cup runs, and safety achieved on the final day of the season.
Former Notts, Swansea, Cardiff and Wales legend Andy Legg is now managing Llannelli AFC, who just recently qualified for their fifth successive season in Europe, qualifying for the Europe League with a Welsh Cup Final win over Bangor City.
I got in touch with Andy to discuss his playing days at Notts, his managing career, Europe, and maybe one day returning to Meadow Lane.
Also check out the end of the interview, to win one of TWO family tickets for the Selco Central Masters at the Capital FM Arena, Nottingham on Saturday, July 16th.
Local author Luke Williamson recently had his first book “I Had A Wheelbarrow” published.
The tome is Luke’s retelling of the events at Notts County during the 2009/10 season. The book has been busy picking up favourable reviews across the board and has just achieved it’s second print run.
I figured i would take the chance to quiz Luke about the reception the book has received, about plans for a possible follow up, and his take on the current events at Meadow Lane. And right at the end, see how to be in with a chance of winning a signed copy of the book!
Carl Heggs is a man who’s already gone a long way to winning the Notts County supporters over.
From both pre and post match interviews either side of Rochdale on Tuesday night, to the actual performance put in by his chosen squad, Heggs is a man keen to not pull the wool over supporter’s eyes. He knows what’s required on the run in towards the season’s end.
Following Tuesday’s battling display in defeat to Rochdale – a stand of defiance to all those who’d questioned whether the Notts players even cared anymore, i figured i’d take some questions to club captain John Thompson.
Thompson feels the squad are again feeling confident and have what it takes to pull themselves clear of the lower reaches of League One.
Three days removed from Sunday’s FA Cup heroics, just two minutes away from being 14th in the league, but once more you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the end of days at Meadow Lane.
After celebrating their own success (a 6-1 win over Bristol Rovers on Saturday) Walsall came to Meadow Lane with a point to make after Notts turned them over on New Year’s Day. But in truth this is a game Notts should have won by some distance. There’s very little point in drawing 1-1 with the likes of Manchester City if you’re only going to do the same with Walsall in your next game.
