#WeAreNotts: Oscar and Elana

26 April 2017

Oscar and Elana Marriott have renewed their season tickets for Notts County's 2017-18 campaign.

The young siblings and their granddad, Clive, have taken advantage of the exclusive renewal discount to ensure they'll be back in their favourite seats next season.

Notts invited the pair down to Meadow Lane to find out why they sit where they do, what they love about coming to matches and their hopes for the future.

Nine-year-old Oscar, who was a mascot for October's home match against Luton, said: "I love sitting in the Family Stand because I can go and get chips by myself at half-time! It's also great sitting behind the goal because you feel really close to the players.

"Coming to games with granddad is great because he remembers everyone who's scored against us before, so we know who to watch out for!"

Elana, who has been coming to matches since she was 10, is loving the new atmosphere at the club following the arrival of Alan Hardy and Kevin Nolan.

She said: "Fans know much more about what's going on behind the scenes, crowds are bigger and the atmosphere is better.

"Kevin is a great manager and I can't wait to see what happens next season!"

It truly is a family affair for the Marriotts, with Oscar and Elana's older brother Ethan a season ticket holder in the Kop and their mum, Clare, in the Pavis.

And, while they all want the Magpies to be successful, Elana and her brother have their own ideas about short and long-term success.

Oscar said: "Next season I want us to finish first - but I don't want us to become a massive club. There'd be too many people and I like knowing everyone around me."

Elana added: "I want us to get promoted but I really want to go to Wembley, so let's do it through the play-offs!"

Supporters have until 30 April to renew their season ticket at the cheapest price. Click here for more information.
