LAST CHANCE to get your name and personal message printed in Notts County book

25 May 2016

Magpies fans have until Monday May 30 to pre-order the new Notts County book 'One Flew Over The Magpies Nest'.

Fans who order by the deadline will get their name included in a special roll of honour in the 200,000-word book authored by Notts supporter Paul Mace.


Costing £20, the publication delves behind the scenes of the past 50 years of the club as told by former players, managers, chairmen and executives.


Don Masson, Lee Hughes, Dean Yates, Neil Warnock, Brian Stubbs, Tommy Johnson, Iain McCulloch, Trevor Christie, Mark Draper, Brian Kilcline, Howard Wilkinson, Mark Stallard, Les Bradd, Jack Dunnett, Derek Pavis, Mick Jones and Martin Allen are among the many contributors.


It celebrates the club's journey since 1967 with a series of anecdotes, stories and banter in a trip down memory lane.


"There has been a tremendous response by supporters so far for the pre-orders," said Mace.


"Many who have ordered the book are dedicating it to family members or getting their Christmas present list sorted early for once!"


Fans also have the chance to tell their own stories in a special supporters' chapter. Illustrations will be included from Jimmy Sirrel's private photo album.


Mace added: "The content and stories which the players, managers and chairmen have supplied to me from the past 50 years is breath-taking.


"Hopefully, the book will give supporters a revealing insight into the stories behind the headlines of a club that has played in all four divisions of English football."


The book charts Notts' rise to the top flight of football twice in the 1980's and 90s, includes a special tribute chapter to legendary manager Jimmy Sirrel, and investigates the Munto takeover in 2009.


The official publication date for the book is November 1. Fans can pre-order the book online by going to the official book website by contacting Lynn Lawson at the Notts County club shop on 0115 9557200
