Please Help Stephen all you Pies CLICK ON ABOVE IMAGE In March this year my best friend Michael ‘Andy’ Janson-Boot tragically took his own life. We’d been mates for 40+ years, he was my best man at my wedding and I even worked with him for a short period back in the early 2000’s. In 2006 he moved out to Australia. He came back over every so often and we kept in close contact. But when someone is so far away it can be difficult to keep a track of them emotionally. Obviously when I got the news it was very hard to take and I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t get over for the funeral either and a feeling of helplessness descended. A charity known as Beyond Blue, set up 20 years ago to support family and friends suffering the loss of loved ones had been supporting Andy’s family over in Australia from the very moment of his passing, so I thought I’d like to get involved and set up a fundraising event for their charity as a way for me to say thank you. On the 3rd August 2024 I will visiting Meadow Lane home of Notts County and my team. From there I shall visit the whole 92 Football League stadiums until I return to Nottingham 17th Aug 2024 (all being well) at the City Ground home of Nottingham Forest, the team my friend loved so much.

The Committee of the Notts County FC Official Supporters
Association are proud to announce they are supporting Notts
County FC by becoming Official Partners of Notts County FC

The committee feel by joining Notts County FC to become
Commercial Partners this will bring huge benefits and open
more doors for NCFCOSA, for example, increased
membership, increased sponsorship, leading to more funds to
support the academy and club.

With the opening of the clubs state-of-the-art fanzone and
events space, the Nest, this gives NCFCOSA a great
opportunity to raise even more funds for our club / academy.

Notts County Foundation on new projects. Exciting times

Hi all. As I am sure most of you are aware, The OSA has it's 10th anniversary this year. So to mark the occasion I decided those involved from its Inception should be rewarded. So with the full backing of the team
Patricia Akers David Akers John Terrington Lois Brough
Have been made Honorary members. I am proud to say they all thoroughly deserve it. Time effort and loyalty in raising funds for no personal gain. That makes them special people.

News from the OSA.
A small group of committee members visited the Academy training camp
at Clifton for a photo shoot with staff and academy players.

 The OSA
purchased two goal posts on wheels, as shown in the picture.

The OSA and the academy had planned a joint community day to raise
money for two shelters for our academy, but it is with reluctance this
event has been cancelled.
The OSA was planning a big community event on April 20 th 2024 with a
bouncy castle, street artists, and a football penalty shootout.
Nearly £6,000 is required to buy the shelters. We could not manage to
stage this event on the small car park allocated on Ironmonger Road
with no toilet faculties for supporters with children. To hire two portable
toilet cabins would have taken the profit we made. There was also the
worry of public liability insurance on a car park.
The OSA committee are hoping to move this event to the Clifton training
ground, but have not had confirmation from the Academy Manager.

OSA News 23/02/2024

Fans may already be aware that Mansfield Museum is curating an exhibition about football.

"Football: The Beautiful Game" is scheduled to open at the end of March and will delve into various aspects of football, from grassroots and its origins to the Premier League and WSL. The exhibition will explore themes of equality, diversity, and inclusion within the sport, considering perspectives from both players and supporters. Additionally, it will examine how football is depicted in television, film, and gaming, as well as its governance and the underlying sciences.

The museum will showcase how different groups contribute to supporting individuals, communities, and clubs through A4 display boards featuring their work.

NCFCOSA was invited to participate in the Mansfield Museum exhibition by Kirsty Sanders. Patricia Akers has provided the history of NCFCOSA and expresses gratitude to Kirsty Sanders for extending the invitation to the Notts County F.C. Official Supporters Association.


As supporters are aware, the Official Supporters Association purchased a surfing flag this season and has made efforts to ensure it is displayed at every opportunity. However, adverse weather conditions, such as dampness, rain, and wind, often prevent its use. Furthermore, safety concerns prohibit its display during dark winter evenings. Thanks are extended to Charlie Roach for kindly facilitating the display of the flag on match days.
