Manager Ricardo Moniz joined the Magpies in April 2015 towards the end of the 2014.15 campaign.
Moniz has a wealth of management and coaching experience, having worked as a skills coach at Premier League Tottenham Hotspur during Martin Jol’s time at the club and managed the likes of Hamburg, Ferencvaros and 1860 Munich.
The 50-year-old came close to joining Notts as Manager earlier in the campaign, having reached an agreement with the club and been set to sign a deal, before unforeseen family commitments meant that the move had to be called off at the last minute.
However his decision has delighted supporters and club staff as Notts look for a new approach on and off the pitch under his guidance.
Dave Kevan returned to the club from Forest Green in April 2015, as Manager Ricardo Moniz’s Assistant.
He is of course no strange to the role having helped the Magpies lift the League Two title in 2009.10.
And he also played in the famous black and white stripes between 1985 and 1989 playing 89 times for the club, scoring three times.
Full of experience in both his playing career and on the sidelines, having spells for Stoke City, Bournemouth and Cardiff City.
Former centre half Dean Yates returned to the club in April as Defensive Coach.
Yates made his debut for Notts as a player during the 1984.85 season and went on to spend the next 10 years with the club, making just under 400 appearances and scoring 37 goals in that time.
A big money move to Derby County followed for Yates, before he spent a spell with Watford towards the end of his playing days, but more recently he has been know to Notts fans as co-commentator on BBC Radio Nottingham’s coverage of the club.
The 47-year-old is part of a new-look coaching team under Manager Ricardo Moniz, which has already seen Dave Kevan return to the club as Assistant Manager.
Pilkington returned to Meadow Lane as goalkeeping coach at the end of the 2011.12 campaign.
During 2005 and 2010, the stopper 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.
Then, in February 2014, with Fabian Spiess injured and Bartosz Bialkowski taking ill just hours before the Magpies’ Sky Bet League 1 encounter with Preston North End at Deepdale, Pilkington pulled on the gloves again and received the Man of the Match award for an outstanding display.
In 2014.15, the fitness fanatic will continue to mentor the County goalkeepers but will no doubt be available for another call up if required.
