22 August 2017

Notts County's Under 10s lifted the EFL Trophy last weekend.

The young Magpies beat Burton Albion, Plymouth, Shrewsbury and Chesterfield on their way to the final, where they overcame Nottingham Forest.

And academy manager Jon Goodman was delighted with the achievement.

"We're all really proud of the boys," he said. "They faced some very strong sides along the way, not least Forest, but showed their quality to claim the trophy.

"Their outstanding performances throughout the tournament demonstrates the strength of our academy and we look forward to seeing how this group develops over the coming years."

Notts chairman Alan Hardy added: "The success of our academy is imperative to the club and it's brilliant to see our Under 10s winning national acclaim.

"I'm sure this achievement will be a great motivator for everyone involved."
