Finnity said that overseeing the painful process of saving the club, nicknamed ‘the Magpies’, from extinction has left him with a huge soft spot for Notts County.

‘I am a fan now. I didn’t think I ever would be a fan but the club has grown on me,’ he told the club’s official website.

Notts County was saved from extinction on 3 December when the Blenheim Consortium bought the Division Two club.

The deal was done just days before Notts County could have gone out of business.

A deadline of 9 December 9 was set for a rescue package to be found. Finnity had warned that there would be no extension to this deadline.

In total, Notts County spent 18 months in administration.

Formed in 1862, it has only won one major trophy, the FA Cup, back in 1894. Currently Notts County languishes in 22nd place in Division Two.
