SLO Blog: "Let's Go Notts County!"

12 February 2015

The club's Supporters Liaison Officer Stuart Brothers looks back on a great night in London…

You'd imagine it's not often that Tuesday nights at Leyton Orient can be called special, but I'm fairly surely that'd be one of the words those in attendance at Brisbane Road this week would certainly use.
 
First and foremost, it was a massive win that should certainly for now hold off any fears supporters have about relegation this season. Also there was a determination in the side's performance that would have pleased anyone who saw the game, a classic away performance as it were.
 
But we all know that in spite of that, the big headline this week was the Hungarian invasion in the away end. And what a noise they made - there can't have been many people leaving the ground without the cries of "Let's go Notts County" still ringing in their ears. Let's hope we can carry that enthusiasm into Tuesday's night game at Meadow Lane against Sheffield United.
 
The noise they made for the whole 90 minutes was unbelievable, and it certainly helped spur on a number of the English contingent as well to back Shaun Derry's XI to victory. Any goal we score is celebrated of course, but it just felt so poetic that the man they'd come to see - Balint Bajner - was the one to get it. The scenes after the goal, and at the full time whistle won't be forgotten any time soon.
 
In the space of one beautifully taken goal, surely any problems with social media takeovers were forgotten about?
 
I spoke, shook hands, and was even hugged by a number of the Hungarians on Tuesday night, many of them saying they can't wait to see us again. Having spoken with more since, some are planning to visit Meadow Lane in the coming months already - the club meanwhile is looking into ways of accommodating our new found friends.
 
On behalf of I'm sure all of Notts County and especially the fans who travelled to London this past week, we thank you for your support, for making it such an occasion, and we can't wait to welcome you back again!
