Home photographers JMS Photography select their top ten pictures from 2014.15...
Billy Daniels vs Crewe 17th Jan
Billy had just come off the bench so normally it takes a while for a player to get involved or get a decent touch in early, however, Daniels first touch produced one of, if not thee best finish of the season. Casually side footing a cross on the volley that was coming across his body into the top corner, genuinely one of the best techincally hit goals I've ever seen.
Carroll save vs Bristol City 31st Aug
As many people would agree with, Roy Carroll showed why he spent time at one of the top clubs in the world in Manchester United, not showing a glimpse of age or fatigue throughout the season, he was such a key part in keeping Notts in several games this past season and this save is just one of a handful from that game versus Bristol City. Notts did go on to lose to a last minute penalty but had it not been for some great saves by Carroll, the game wouldve been far out of sight by then.
Carroll yellow card vs Swindon 13th Dec
Aswell as Carroll being good with his hands, he was also very good with his mouth! Outspoken and never shy infront of the referee, clocking up numerous yellow cards throughout the season, you have to see the funny side in the photo with big Roy right up in the face of referee Darren Deadman whilst he collects his yellow card. Refs must have dreaded coming to Meadow Lane.
Bajner late goal vs Barnsley 14th Apr
Balint Bajner was a crowd favourite right from the start for the Notts fans, even more so with a huge Hungarian backing behind him which im sure the Notts media staff can vouch for! Bajner was always a nuisance for defenders and definitely gave 100% in every appearance. His late goal versus Barnsley gave Notts all three points in a tight game at the business end of the season and you can see the passion showed by him after celebrating his goal.
Moniz welcomed by home crowd vs Barnsley 14th April
Ricardo Moniz was given a great reception by Meadow Lane at the start of his tenure. This picture was used many times in different articles, papers and programmes towards the end of the season and you can always feel satisfied when that happens!
Thompson Hat-Trick vs Crawley 18th Oct
Garry Thompson rolled back the years this season with quite a decent return with his final goal tally. This game versus Crawley had three of them from him. Pictured at the end with the match ball which he no doubt got signed by his fellow team mates, always a great occassion when a player scores a hat-trick.
Petrasso skill vs Walsall 1st Nov
Michael Petrasso was one of those players that you knew could produce something special every time he touched the ball. This picture shows his surrounded by Walsall defenders after going on a mazy run which left every one of them being left for dead. He weaved in and out of tackles in the penalty area and although his final shot was saved by the keeper, it was a moment of brilliance, almost Messi like from Petrasso.
Noble vs Sheff Utd 17th Feb
Liam Nobles backheel goal against United was given plenty of exposure after the game, aswell as being on the OS and the back page of the Nottingham Post the following day, it was also very popular on Twitter as the celebration was mostly to do with Notts' celebrity follower, Saint Raymond. Always great to have your pictures being noticed on social media aswell.
Noble vs Doncaster 25th Apr
Nobles vital goal against Doncaster put Notts 2-0 up and with a bit of breathing space it was ensured that they would go into the final game of the season with the fate of the club in their own hands. It was such a special moment in the season for the fans as they were in great voice throughout the game, so it was nice to see it topped off with another goal and more importantly three points. The picture shows how much it meant to the players celebrating infront of the kop.
Thompson aerial battle vs Preston JPT 16th Dec
This picture is a favourite of ours as it captures a great moment as Garry Thompson flies towards the Preston keeper, knocking him off balance in the process, mainly the timing of the shot is what makes it special. Capturing something like this takes a lot of concentration and focus.
