Chairman's message: Deadline day

31 August 2017

Notts County chairman and owner Alan Hardy has issued the following message to supporters following the closure of the summer transfer window.

My second transfer window at the helm is now at an end – and what a different experience it was to my first!

Back in January we faced a mad dash to exit our transfer embargo before bolstering the squad with a number of late signings to give Kevin Nolan the best possible chance of keeping us in the EFL.

He comfortably achieved that, as he promised he would, setting us up nicely for the summer.

This window, we were keen to get the bulk of our business done early to allow our new signings to settle in properly before the season began and to help the manager and his coaching staff formulate a strong plan for the season ahead.

I'm delighted with the way our business has panned out and I believe our position in the top seven is a good reflection of the positive strides we've made in the transfer market.

No doubt many of you will have been keeping an eager eye on our website and social media today in the hope of some exciting news, but Kevin and I are happy with our squad and saw no reason to add to it today.

We will continue to explore targets with a view to January but, as always, our selection process will be carefully thought-out with the best interests of the club at heart.

We have faith in this group and believe they are getting better day after day.

Your support, which has been magnificent so far this season, will be vital in helping the players reach their full potential.

Stick with us and let's see how far we can go.
