Interview: Macaulay Langstaff

Hear from our new striker

1 June 2022

New signing Macaulay Langstaff says he has the self-belief to carry his incredible 2021-22 campaign into his career at Meadow Lane.

The forward scored 32 goals for National League North title winners Gateshead last season, scooping the division’s Player of the Season award along the way.
 
And Langstaff is excited to prove he can continue his fine form at Notts.
 
“Last season shows that I can score plenty of goals and play well consistently,” he said. “I believe I’ll take that into the new campaign and continue improving in all areas of my game.
 
“I have to say a big thank you to the manager and his assistant at Gateshead, who were absolutely brilliant with me over the last two years and brought me on leaps and bounds.
 
“The major improvement was in my mentality – they gave me confidence and self-belief. Physically I improved, too, and tactically the club got the best out of me. They were the ingredients for my success.”

Langstaff has nothing but complimentary words for his former club.
 
“The last two years have been the most enjoyable I’ve ever had playing football,” he revealed.
 
“Leaving Gateshead is really tough – I’ve made friends for life there and I’m really close to the management staff and the people at the top of the club.
 
“It’s a brilliant club and I’m a Gateshead fan now – apart from when we play them next season, of course! I’m really rooting for them.”

On joining Notts, Langstaff added: “I’m absolutely buzzing to sign for such a big club.
 
“I came and visited recently for the very first time and, once I’d seen the facilities and spoken to people about the way they want to play, I realised it was somewhere that suits me down to the ground.
 
“There was interest from elsewhere but Notts stood out to me straightaway.
 
“Playing in front of big crowds really excites me. I like the idea of scoring in front of plenty of fans and impressing people.
 
“I can’t wait to get started.”
 
A video interview with Macaulay will follow in pre-season.
