Notts County supporters travelling to Exeter for this evening's game are being given a free pasty courtesy of their chairman and owner.

Alan Hardy is rewarding his fans who make the 422-mile round trip for the League Two game at St James Park.

Each away supporter will be given a voucher at the turnstile which can be redeemed at a food kiosk inside the ground.

The Magpies are currently top of the League Two table.

To travel that far on a Tuesday night is amazing commitment and the least I can do to thank our supporters is to offer them a bite to eat when they get to the ground.

Former Notts County boss sacked for threats towards officials

It has been revealed that former Notts County boss John Sheridan was sacked by the club for gross misconduct after verbal assaults and threats towards officials.

It happened during the club's 2-0 home defeat by Wycombe in December, leading to a five-game touchline ban.

Our sports reporter James Clark has the latest:

Following this disclosure of the content of Sheridan's language, Chairman Alan Hardy said:

It was our decision to terminate the contract based on what I read in the referee's report regarding the incident. This is a family-friendly club which aims to be a pillar of the local community.

Comments of the type made by Mr Sheridan were utterly appalling and wholly unacceptable, completely undermining the community spirit and focus we are striving to develop here.

In light of the recent disclosure of the referee's report, I thought it appropriate to communicate the exact reasons behind the course of action we took.

– Chairman Alan Hardy
