Former Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin is saddened by Notts County’s plight and says the decision to fire Kevin Nolan was chairman Alan Hardy’s “biggest mistake”.
The Carlisle stopper currently runs a goalkeeping school in Nottinghamshire, but has pledged his future to the Cumbrians for another season.
Since leaving Notts last summer, the club has been relegated from the Football League and avoided being wound up at the High Court earlier this month over an unpaid tax bill.
With uncertainty over the club’s future continuing to dominate headlines with a takeover no nearer to reach a conclusion, Collin says he is disappointed to see them struggling.
Speaking to the Eastwood Advertiser, Collin said: “It’s very sad to see the state of the club right now.
“At the end of the play-off season the club, squad etc was in a fantastic position, but the chairman got involved and wanted to take the club in a different direction.
“Ultimately, himself, the club and its fans have paid a huge price, and it’s going to take a huge effort to turn it all around in my opinion.”
