Notts County manager Neal Ardley is hoping for ‘the start of something good’ for the Magpies following Alexander and Christoffer Reedtz’s takeover of the club.

The boss enjoyed a short meeting with the new owners before heading to Alfreton last night, where he saw his side narrowly beaten in a pre-season friendly.

And Ardley was encouraged by what he heard in his first discussions with his new bosses.

“Obviously, it’s a huge relief,” he said. “Hopefully this is going to be the start of something good.

“The new owners want to put a model in place that grows success over a longer period of time and they’re really enthusiastic.

“The fact that, in the coming days, we’ll be in a position to start strengthening the squad will be fantastic as well so, all in all, it’s really positive.”

Ardley also took the opportunity to praise club staff, who he says have been an inspiration to him and others on the football side of the business.

“My job hasn’t been easy, but it’s not been the hardest job at the club,” he said. “The work Jason Turner (Football Operations Director) and Beverley Markland (HR Director) have done has been fantastic and the office staff have kept their spirits high and turned up every day – they’ve been an inspiration.”
