Dougie Pullen updates us on the latest news from the NCFCOSA…
Die-hard Pie supporters who made the long treks to Hartlepool and Crawley were well and truly rewarded for their loyalty. Six points out of six will have made even these long journeys home a happy affair. Is it just me, or do the miles coming back always seem to pass quicker after an away victory? One Notts fan who loyally makes these long journeys on the official supporters’ coach is Michael Riordan. His MatchDay Vlog ‘LetsTalkNotts’ is well worth a ‘watch’ on youtube.com to get a flavour of what it’s like to follow Notts on their travels. The reaction to the referee’s decision for our first goal at Crawley was price-less! Could Michael be the next Shane Meadows?? Now for the opportunity to get six out of six in front of the home supporters. Fingers crossed; you’re worth it!
A season to be optimistic about, finally
We are always interested in getting our members’ views on how they see things at Meadow Lane. We asked Joshua Collishaw, our Youth Representative on the committee, for his thoughts on the opening part of the season. Here they are:
“After the many different managers we have had during Ray Trew’s tenure at the football club, this is the season to feel good about. With a trusted and tried manager in charge as well as well a team of players who were the bestof last seaso’s crop, plus new players with a lot of experience between them from League One or higher. This is the season. However, a team capable of promotion isn’t served on a plate ready-cooked; It is developed on the training ground and moulded into a team capable of the top seven. If we don’t achieve promotion this season, then we will hopefully achieve it next season – this is a large project for Sheridan to take on and we all have very high expectations as Notts County fans – after the last season went to pot.
Patience must be given to Sheridan after another promising performance at home against Plymouth, where we were unlucky to lose the game. The players just couldn’t find the back of the net. Their obvious desperation to score wouldn’t pay off on the night. But our last two away games were a different story! There are now 121 points still to pick up ahead of today’s game. Enough to run away with the league!”
