Notts County have this morning confirmed the appointment of Crawley Town’s Harry Kewell as their new manager.
It comes after Kevin Nolan was sacked on Sunday after losing 3-1 to Lincoln City which left the Magpies bottom of the Football League having taken just one point from their opening five League Two games this season.
Kewell’s took Crawley to mid-table after taking seven points from their opening five games so far this season.
Since being appointed in May 2017, he’s won 18 of his 57 games in charge of the West Sussex club..

Notts County owner and chairman Alan Hardy said: “Having now worked in football for a significant period of time, I have had the opportunity to learn from other clubs what good looks like.
“I have therefore decided to appoint a technical director, who will set the club’s overall footballing philosophy and be on hand to support and mentor the manager as required.
“Harry will, however, be solely responsible for our first-team squad, having the final say on transfers, tactics and team selection.
“He has enjoyed an excellent start to his managerial career and I am hugely impressed with his knowledge and attention to detail.
“I thoroughly enjoyed our discussions about the role and have been left with no doubt that he has a fierce ambition to succeed and a real enthusiasm to work for Notts County.
“I’m excited to see how he implements his exciting methods and look forward to him working with our new technical director.”
Since the news of the appointment came out, supporters have given their thoughts, Notts County left feeling rather mixed and Crawley fans are glad to see the back of him it seems – check out those tweets on the next page.
