Notts County stars told ‘don’t party too hard’ in ‘worst celebrations ever’

Notts County were trolled by fans for their lack of celebration following promotion.

The Magpies confirmed their return to the Football League on Saturday after they defeated Chesterfield on penalties in the National League play-off final. Luke Williams’ side found themselves behind in normal time and extra time but twice fought back to take the final all the way to spot kicks, winning 4-3 in the shootout.

Although the raucous celebrations that would usually be associated with promotion were not to be seen in the County changing room.

Footage on Twitter captioned “special delivery”, showed goalkeeper Sam Slocombe wheeling a trolley packed full of crates of beer into the dressing room.

But the keeper was only greeted by murmurs of cheers and the majority of the squad on their phones.

Comments underneath the post said: “Don’t party too hard.” Another sarcastic comment read: “They look happy to have won the play-offs.”

One other fan wrote: “Worst celebration ever.” “And the crowd goes mild,” a fourth comment said.

Victory at Wembley on Saturday ended County’s four-year exodus from the Football League after they were relegated at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Cedwyn Scott wrote his name into Magpies folklore after he scored the decisive penalty for County but the hero of the shoot-out was definitely goalkeeper Archie Mair.

Mair was sent on as a late substitute in extra time purely for the penalty shootout as he replaced Slocombe.

The 22-year-old saved brilliantly from Darren Oldaker and Jeff King to spare John Bostock’s blushes whose ridiculous Panenka attempt hit the crossbar, allowing Scott to bag the winning penalty.

The Magpies conceded just six minutes into the final as Andrew Robert Dallas scored from the penalty spot for Chesterfield before Bostock sent County to extra time with an 88th minute equaliser.

The Spireites took the lead in added time via a screamer from Armando Dobra but County equalised for the second time in the game through Ruben Rodrigues.

Meadow Lane will again host Football League action next season as they join league winners Wrexham in sealing a deserved promotion after finishing on 107 points – just four behind the Welsh side.
