Arter Leaves Notts Ahead Of Playoffs

Harry Arter has left Notts County following his month long loan spell, despite their potentially being still five games remaining for the Magpies to play this season.

Notts play Altrincham in their final home game on Saturday and will still need a point to assure themselves of a playoff place from their remaining two National League matches. The Magpies end the campaign at Maidenhead on Sunday 15th May before heading into a potential quarter final, semi final, and final tie (scheduled for the London Stadium on 4th June) as they bid for promotion back to the football league after three years absence.

On leaving Meadow Lane, Arter who played nine games, winning six of those, stated “I would like to say a massive thank you to the board and Ian Burchnall for giving me the opportunity to make my return to competitive football.

“Following initial discussions with Ian I knew I was coming into an environment I’d enjoy, but if I’m honest the club has exceeded my expectations.

“The style of play, facilities and quality within the squad make this a great place to work and I’ve got every confidence the boys will secure their place in the play-offs and kick on from there.

“I would also like to thank the fans for the way they’ve welcomed me. I’ll be following the end of the season closely in the hope everyone connected with the club gets what they deserve.”

Whilst Head Coach Ian Burchnall said  “Harry’s arrival gave us a big lift during a tough run of results. I think everyone could see the calmness and professionalism he brought to us in his debut at Dagenham and he has certainly played a big part in getting us into the healthy position we find ourselves in.

“We’re very grateful to him for his efforts, and to Nottingham Forest for facilitating the move, and wish him all the best for the future.”

Against Altrincham in the clubs final game of the regular season, kids activities in the Family Stand will include Balloon modelers and face painters with under twelves tickets only £1 and under 7’s free with an adult.

More family fun football at the famous old stadium will see Notts County Women, who are also in action at Meadow Lane on Monday night (9th May).
