Less time on the road next season

20 June 2018

Notts fans will have fewer miles to travel to support Kevin Nolan’s men on the road in the 2018-19 Sky Bet League Two season.

Despite losing one of the shortest trips of the season, the 58-mile round trip to Chesterfield, Notts fans will travel 74 miles fewer to support their team next season.

Vanarama National League champions Macclesfield Town represent the shortest trip of the newly welcomed sides, with Magpies fans facing a 111-mile round trip to Moss Rose.

Also joining from the National League are play-off victors Tranmere Rovers, who present Notts with the longest trip of all their new opponents (228 miles).

With Accrington, Wycombe and Barnet all exiting the fourth tier, Notts will save themselves just short of 750 miles, with the introduction of Northampton, MK Dons and Oldham, all of which are in closer proximity to Meadow Lane, saving supporters almost 300 miles altogether.

As in previous seasons, Notts' longest journey will be a 422-mile round trip to face Exeter City with the trip to Yeovil Town's Huish Park close behind at 402 miles.

The shortest two trips of the season both come in at significantly under 100 miles, with the East Midlands rivals Mansfield Town (32 miles) the shortest, followed by the drive to Lincoln City's Sincil Bank Lincoln City (70 miles).

In total, Notts will complete 5,023 miles - 74 fewer than the 2017-18 season.

The Magpies will learn their 2018-19 Sky Bet League Two fixtures on Thursday 21 June and supporters can join Alan Hardy and Kevin Nolan for breakfast at Meadow Lane.
