8 April 2016

Your chance to get your stories into a new Notts County book....

An appeal has been issued for supporters to share their memories in a new Notts County publication.

Author Paul Mace has called on fans to submit their anecdotes and stories of supporting the club for inclusion in the book.


Mace said: “I have spoken extensively to former players, managers and chairmen.  Now I want the fans to have their say too.


“There will be a dedicated supporters chapter featuring recollections of following the club and memorable matches they attended.  It could be their first game, travelling half-way around the world to see a game, getting married at half time at Meadow Lane, living next door to a former manager or meeting players.


“I hope these stories will be a combination of entertaining, funny, sad, inspiring and thought-provoking. 


“My aim is for the book to be as engaging and interactive with supporters as possible and to tangibly demonstrate the feelings and rapport our fans have with the club.”


Notts County legends including Don Masson, Lee Hughes, Tommy Johnson, Mark Draper, Trevor Christie, Brian Kilcline, Les Bradd, Brian Stubbs, Howard Wilkinson and Neil Warnock as well as former chairmen Derek Pavis and Jack Dunnett have all contributed to the book.
