Notts County chairman and owner Alan Hardy has issued a message of sincere thanks to supporters.
Mr Hardy formally completed his purchase of the club last week before confirming the appointment of Kevin Nolan as manager.
And, after seeing a crowd of over 11,300 turn out for Saturday’s match against Mansfield Town, the chairman is extremely grateful.
He said: “I would like to place on record my thanks to everyone who supported Kevin and the players on their way to a much-needed point and clean sheet on Saturday.
“It was brilliant to see such a positive response to our ticketing initiatives and there’s no doubt in my mind that the fans played a huge part in us getting the result. Hopefully we have now turned a corner on the field and we can look forward to climbing the table.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my first matchday as chairman, meeting so many fascinating, passionate people - including the Italian Magpies, of course!
“The messages of support keep flooding through and everyone here at Meadow Lane is determined to repay that backing by performing to the best of our ability on and off the pitch."
