Notts County chairman Alan Hardy has issued the following message to supporters following the conclusion of the Magpies’ 2017-18 season.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported us throughout the campaign.
Unfortunately there was to be no fairytale ending and, given some of the refereeing decisions we were subjected to over the course of our play-off semi-final tie, perhaps it simply wasn’t meant to be.
When the dust settles, we will be able to look back on an amazing season of progression on and off the field, culminating in a breathtaking occasion which attracted a record crowd this century.
It’s difficult to put into words the level of pride I felt looking around the stadium ahead of kick-off last night. Nearly every seat was filled and there was a terrific atmosphere swirling around Meadow Lane.
We are all united in our desire to have more nights like that and with your continued backing, I’m sure we will.
While the players will now have some well-deserved time off with their friends and family, behind the scenes the hard work begins straightaway to ensure we continue on our upward curve.
As always, I will keep you informed of the latest developments in our exciting journey.
Thank you once again.
