First Team Manager
Derry was appointed as first team manager in November 2013, tasked with guiding the Magpies away from the Sky Bet League 1 drop zone.
No stranger to Meadow Lane, Derry joined the club at the age of 10 and came through the Academy to make 93 appearances at first team level.
After 27 appearances in the 1997.98 Division Three championship season, he moved on to Sheffield United for a fee of £700,000.
A natural leader, who has been a popular figure at every club he has represented through his passionate displays, Derry has captained Portsmouth, Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers.
He has a played pivotal role in promotions to the top-flight with Palace and QPR and is now looking to transfer his successful playing career into management.
Having worked with some top bosses, including Tony Pulis, Harry Redknapp and former County boss Neil Warnock, Derry has all the credentials to take the club forward.
Abbott was brought to the club alongside boss Shaun Derry to add experience to the Meadow Lane backroom team.
The duo had known each other from Abbott’s time as a coach at Leeds United but have reunited with the hope of bringing success to Notts Count Football Club.
Having managed Carlisle United for the past five years, during which time he guided them to a Football League Trophy victory, Abbott knows the ins and outs of Sky Bet League 1 and will be a valuable tool in Derry’s management of the club.
Abbott had previously held the assistant manager post at Brunton Park prior to his promotion after successful spells as caretaker boss.
Pilkington returned to Meadow Lane as goalkeeping coach at the end of the 2011.12 campaign.
During 2005 and 2010, he made over 140 appearances for the club and received the 2007.08 fans’ player of the year and players’ player of the year awards.
Following an injury to goalkeeper Fabian Spiess, Pilkington agreed to sign non-contract playing terms with the club, something he has continued into 2013.14.
The former Manchester United stopper went on to make his landmark 150th appearance for the club in a return to action against Brentford in March 2013.
Hannah has been with the club since 2009, following a year-long work placement at Meadow Lane.
The Roehampton University graduate has a degree in Sports Science but also obtained a Masters at Nottingham Trent University, specialising in performance analysis.
Hannah is chiefly responsible for opposition breakdown, providing on-demand video support for the coaching staff, compiling detailed reports using post-match analysis service ProZone and presenting information on potential signings.
Development Squad Coach
Hodge was appointed as development squad coach ahead of the 2013.14 campaign but was a familiar face around Meadow Lane at the back end of the previous season.
As a player, Hodge represented the likes of Forest, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur and is capped 24 times for the English national team.
The A Licence coach is responsible for nurturing the club's brightest prospects and helping them to make the step up to the first team.
Following the departure of Chris Kiwomya as manager, Hodge was appointed caretaker manager on a temporary basis but later returned to his regular role.
Alexander was appointed as the youngest professional chief scout in the UK in 2011 and is tasked with unearthing potential signings for the club.
The son of well-respected football manager Keith Alexander works closely with the development squad manager to run the rule over players and decide whether they have the potential to make it at Meadow Lane.
An avid spectator at football matches of all levels up and down the country, Alexander has been influential in bringing the likes of Yoann Arquin and Tyrell Waite to the club.
Head of Sports Medicine
Wilson initially arrived at Meadow Lane in 2010 as head of youth medical services but was promoted to first team duties a year later by former boss Martin Allen.
Following a season as first team physiotherapist, Wilson’s role developed into head of sports medicine, as a result of the medical department’s expansion.
As head of sports medicine, Wilson provides direction, support and guidance to all members of the sports medicine team to provide the best possible care for both senior and Academy players.
Prior to joining the club, the Irishman had previously spent time with the Watford Academy, Sydney Swans (Australian Rules Football), New South Wales Warratahs (rugby) and worked for the Irish Institute of Sport.
Wilson, a graduate of St Mary's University, has gained qualifications in Sports Science, Physiotherapy and has a Post-Grad Degree in Education.
He has previously lectured at St Mary's and is currently doing so at Nottingham University, on an undergraduate Physiotherapy course, at the same time as carrying out a Masters in Sports Medicine.
First Team Physiotherapist
Knight linked up with the Magpies in the summer of 2012 and is responsible for the treatment of the first team players at the club.
This includes injury prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
A graduate of Birmingham University, Knight kicked off her career in football as part of the Aston Villa Academy medical staff, before taking up a full-time position with Bristol City, where she worked with first team, reserves and academy players.
The former Aston Villa Ladies midfielder later spent two years with Coventry City as head academy physiotherapist but a desire to work with senior players again brought her to Meadow Lane.
Strength & Conditioning Coach
Fearn was brought to the club in the summer of 2013 from West Bromwich Albion, where he was previously physiological support assistant.
The Derby and Wales University graduate has a wide range of experience across a number of sports, including football, Great British athletics, golf and skiing.
In football, he has also spent time with Coventry City and brings an innovative approach to his position at Meadow Lane.
Lawson, who is also the club's community liaison officer, provides support for the club's first team and Academy players.
Nutrition is an important part of the players' preparations and the University of Nottingham graduate, who possesses a Masters degree in Nutrition (Dietetics), offers a service that helps them to perform at optimum levels.
Lawson also works closely with Paralympic Team GB athletes in the East Midlands and is a member of the Nutrition Society.
