3 Notts County players capable of stepping up to League One in the future

Notts County’s first season back in the Football League has been full of ups and downs. Having raced to the summit of League Two in the early stages of the campaign, the departure of manager Luke Williams somewhat stagnated their ambitions and they now sit mid-table.

Notts County have had a season full of ups and downs upon their return to the Football League, but they’ll be hoping to end on a positive note at Meadow Lane.

Notts County raced to the summit of League Two in the early stages of the campaign. However, a drop in form and the departure of manager Luke Williams somewhat stagnated their ambitions and they now sit 13th in the table, six points off the play-offs.

The Magpies won their last fixture 3-0 away from home over Bradford City, however, handing them a late lifeline in their hopes for a play-off spot following a poor run of form beforehand.

There are a number of players within Notts’ squad that have taken to life well in League Two, with a few in particular who look as though their careers may progress above the fourth tier. Here are three of the Magpies’ players who are capable of making the step-up to League One in the near future…

Macaulay Langstaff

A revelation for the East Midlands outfit since signing from Gateshead last season, Langstaff is hot property at Meadow Lane.

Following a record-breaking National League campaign in which he scored 41 goals and provided six assists, the 27-year-old has registered 25 goals in all competitions this season alongside a further four assists. He will be a wanted man yet again this summer. 

Alassana Jatta

He may not have been with the Magpies for long, but winter signing Jatta looks to be the real deal having got off to a fantastic start with Maynard’s side.

Who is this?

The 25-year-old joined Notts County from Viborg FF at the end of the latest transfer window and has now begun to hit form having scored three and assisted one in his last two outings. The Gambian forward is a hit with the Magpies faithful already, and should he continue in his current vein then a step up to the third tier would be unlikely to phase him.

Lewis Macari

Another addition to Maynard’s side this season, Macari signed permanently for Notts following a successful loan deal from Championship outfit Stoke City.

The 22-year-old right-back has slotted in seamlessly for the Magpies and supporters were delighted to hear the news that they had managed to secure his services full-time. The youngster may win promotion to League One with his new side in the coming seasons, though it would not be a surprise to see him swooped up by a third tier outfit in the near future if not.
