Last Season

A season that promised much was ultimately a disappointment for Notts County, who finished 17th in their first season back in the fourth tier since 2010. Despite a run of ten games without victory in February and March, Notts managed to stay up relatively comfortably. That said, fans will be expecting a lot better, after a number of alarming 4 and 5 goal defeats. Defeat to non-league Salford City in the FA Cup also added further disappointment.


Key Players

With Roy Carroll returning to Northern Ireland, Adam Collin’s performances between the sticks will be crucial for Notts this season. He’ll hope that the acquisitions of Matt Tootle and Richard Duffy will help bolster the defence in front of him. Going forward, Notts County aren’t short of options, having signed Jonathan Forte to help Jon Stead and Izale McLeod chip in with the goals. The experience of Alan Smith may also prove invaluable.
