Throwback Thursday: Sven-Goran Eriksson Arrives At Notts County Five Years Ago

24 July 2014

Five years ago this week, the footballing world was stunned when former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson joined Notts County as director of football.

This week's Throwback Thursday looks back at the day Sven arrived at Meadow Lane to a media circus. 

Meadow Lane had never seen so many members of the press and fans turned out in force to welcome the ex-Roma, Lazio and Manchester City boss to the club.

The photo shows Sven signing autographs for shocked supporters on the Meadow Lane pitch.

The club would like to thank Bowles Associates, JMS Photography, Action Images, Dan Westwell and the Nottingham Post for supporting the NCFC History archives. 

Look out for more classic photographs every Thursday.
