Les inducted into Hall of Fame!

Our all-time leading goalscorer Les Bradd was inducted into the club's Hall of Fame at a special event attended by Christoffer and Alexander Reedtz. Bradd, who remains heavily involved with the club as an ambassador and is also part of Notts County Football in the Community’s team, scored 125 league goals in 379 starting appearances between 1967 and 1978.
