Since then, Notts have twice managed 3 season stints at the very top, 1923/24 to 1925/26 and 1981/82 to 1983/84. There was also an odd season at the highest level in 1991/92.
Longest spell in the top two tiers
Notts spent the first 38 seasons of the Football League in the top two tiers before relegation to the 3rd tier came in 1930. Since then, the club's longest spell in the top two divisions was 12 seasons (mostly under manager Jimmy Sirrel) from 1973/74 to 1984/85.

Notts were unsuccessful in an end of season "Test Match" in both 1893/94 and 1894/95, but - as mentioned earlier - County won promotion via a "Test Match" group in 1896/97. Test matches were abolished for 1898/99 and it was not until 1986/87 that the Play Offs were introduced.
From the 3rd tier
Notts were twice crowned champions of the 3rd Division South; 1930/31 & 1949/50, the latter being the highlight of the Tommy Lawton era with Meadow Lane crowds averaging over 35,000.

County won promotion in 1989/90 by winning their first ever Wembley final.

County have only once competed in the 4th tier play-offs, losing in the sem-finals to Coventry City in 2017/18.
The FA Cup
Notts County won the FA Cup in 1893/94, County were the first League club below the top flight to lift the trophy (having been relegated to the 2nd tier the previous season) and they won it by beating Bolton Wanderers 4-1 at Goodison Park, Jimmy Logan scored a hat-trick. This was also the first time the FA Cup had been won by a professional club outside of the North West or West Midlands.
Notts had also reached the final in 1890/91 but lost 3-1 to Blackburn Rovers.
County last reached the Semi-Finals in 1921/22, since then Notts have reached the Quarter-Finals three times; 1954/55, 1983/84 and 1990/91.

The highest scoring draw involving Notts is 4-4 which has occurred several times, most recently at home to Bristol City on 27th November 1999.
Notts' Most Surprising Victories
Notts most startling win has to be the 1-0 victory at Aston Villa at the beginning of season 1981/82, Villa were the reigning English league champions who would go on to win the European Cup that season, whilst for Notts it was their first top flight fixture in 55 years. County also won the return match by the same score at Meadow Lane.
In the last 16 of the FA Cup in 1955, as a 2nd tier club the Magpies knocked out Chelsea who went on to be top flight champions that season. As a 4th tier club Notts have twice knocked out top flight opposition in this competition, Wigan Athletic in 2010 and Sunderland in 2011, both away from home.
In the League Cup, and in the days when cup competitions were taken far more seriously, as a 3rd tier club Notts knocked out the holders Stoke City in 1972/73 to reach the Quarter-finals (City's line-up included England's 1966 World Cup final hat-trick Geoff Hurst).
Notts' Worst League Finish
Notts have twice finished 21st in the 4th tier in seasons 2005/06 and 2007/08. County needed a victory on the final day of the 2005/06 season to guarantee their Football League status, Notts only managed a draw with Bury but stayed up by virtue of favourable results elsewhere. Two years later Notts again finished 21st with less points, but on this occasion safety was secured with one fixture still remaining.
Bottom of the 4th tier
Notts were last seen at the foot of the 4th tier after games 4-8 of 2018/19, Kevin Nolan - who had guided the club to the play-offs the previous season - was sacked after game 5. Prior to that County were rock bottom after 9 games of 2004/05, Gary Mills was the manager at the time and was also sacked soon afterwards.You then have fo go all the way back to September/early October of 1968/69.
Longest spell in the 4th tier
County suffered 7 consecutive seasons in the basement league from 1964/65 to 1970/71.
Longest spell in the lower divisions (3rd & 4th tier)
2018/19 will be Notts' 24th consecutive season in the lower leagues, this being easily County's longest spell in the bottom two divisions which began with season 1995/96.
Notts have been relegated 16 times in all.....
From the Top flight
County have surrendered their place amongst the elite on 6 occasions; 1892/93*, 1912/13, 1919/20, 1925/26, 1983/84 and 1991/92
*In 1892/93 (the first season in which clubs would be relegated to the newly created 2nd tier) Notts lost their top flight status after losing an end of season "Test Match".
From the 2nd tier
Notts have dropped into the lower leagues on 5 occasions; 1929/30, 1934/35, 1957/58, 1984/85 and 1994/95.
From the 3rd tier
Notts have been relegated to the basement division 5 times; 1958/59, 1963/64, 1996/97, 2003/04 and 2014/15.
Heaviest Notts defeat
Notts have lost 9-1 on three occasions:- At Aston Villa in only Notts' 3rd ever Football League fixture on 29th September 1888, then at Blackburn Rovers (also in a league match) on 16th November 1889 and at Portsmouth in the 2nd tier on 9th April 1927.
More recently 4th tier County lost 8-1 at top flight Swansea City in a televised FA Cup 4th round tie on 6th February 2018. In the league they went down 7-0 in a 3rd tier clash at Bury on 12th November 1960 and the most recent 6-0 league defeat was at Rotherham United on 1st March 2014.
The worst ever home defeat is 7-0 to Preston North End in an early Football League fixture on 3rd November 1888.
County's worst opening day defeat was a 6-0 reverse at Leeds United on the first day of 1953/54, but - despite further heavy defeats that season - Notts went on to comfortably avoid the drop (and beat Leeds in the return match at home).
Most Embarrassing Defeat
Notts have been knocked out of the FA Cup by non-league clubs on more occasions than anybody should care to remember. The most embarrassing of these would have to be the 3-1 home defeat to Rhyl on 5th January 1957 as Notts were a 2nd tier club at the time. Manager George Poyser, who'd taken County all the way to the Quarter-finals two years earlier, was sacked a few days later.
Most wins on the bounce - 10 during Notts 4th tier championship season of 1997/98 managed by Sam Allardyce, 6 of these were away.
The all time English league record is 18 achieved by Manchester City in season 2017/18, beating the previous record of 14.
Longest unbeaten run - 19
in 1930 - the Tom Keetley era, the run began with the final match of 1929/30
(a home draw with Oldham Athletic) and lasted into the December of 1930/31
(with defeat at Southend United). The run swells to 21 if you include cup
ties. Notts also set a record scoring sequence during this season (see
The all time League record is 49 set by Arsenal from May 2003-October 2004.
Most home wins on the bounce - 14
season 1959/60 in which Notts were promoted
from the 4th tier as runners-up.
The all time League record is 25 set by Bradford Park Avenue in 1926/27.
Consecutive home games unbeaten - 25 during Jimmy Sirrel's first spell as manager, the run included the whole of the 1970/71 season plus the last game of 1969/70 and the first of 1971/72.
Consecutive away games unbeaten - 19 which was also an unbeaten start on the road in the league for manager Keith Curle, these matches being the last seven trips of 2011/12 and the first twelve of 2012/13. The run stretched to 22 games with the inclusion of cup-ties, but the home form during this period was poor and 8 days after his first away defeat in a competitive match Curle was sacked.
Consecutive clean sheets - Notts last went 6 League games without conceding a goal during the latter stages of the 2009/10 season (one match in this sequence was a 0-0 draw). The 1970/71 team went 7 matches without conceding a goal if you include an FA Cup tie.
Consecutive games scored - 35 this has occurred twice:- most recently the final 32 matches of 1959/60 plus the first 3 of 1960/61. Perhaps the record should solely be credited to Notts of 1930/31 as this run can be topped up with 4 FA Cup ties making a total of 39, the sequence began on the final day of the 1929/30 season and ended 11 months later with a goalless draw at Northampton Town, Tom Keetley scored in 22 of these matches including 4 hat-tricks.
Winning start to the season - Notts' best start to a season is 4 successive wins, last achieved at the beginning of 1928/29.
Most defeats on the bounce - 10 in the 2016/17 season, at the end of which chairman Ray Trew sold the club. The run saw Notts drop from 6th to 22nd in the 4th tier.
Prior to that Notts lost 9 on the bounce in Ray Trew's first full season as chairman towards the end of the 2010/11 season.
Darwen lost 18 on the trot in the 2nd tier in season 1898/99.
Most games without a win - 20

Most home games without a win - 13 this has happened twice, most recently the last 13 home matches of season 1979/80.
Most away games without a win - 29 Notts failed to win any of their last 20 away matches of season 1992/93 and none of their first 9 trips of 1993/94, the run ended with a victory at the 2nd tier champions to be, Crystal Palace.
Most games without scoring - 5
The last time this occurred was during the 2010/11
season, a run that forced the departure of manager Paul Ince.
The all time League record is 11 most recently suffered by Hartlepool Utd in 1992/93.
Losing start to the season - Notts lost their opening 5 league games of 1963/64 under player/manager Eddie Lowe, the season ended in relegation with County propping up the 3rd tier in last place.

Special mentions for Barrie
Jones who scored the fastest
Notts goal on record; just 6 seconds after
kick-off in a 2-0 win at home to Torquay United on March 31st 1962....
Scanlon who scored a hat-trick in the space
of 2 minutes and 45 seconds at home to Sheffield Wednesday in a 3-3 draw
on 16th November 1974 (the first goal
was a penalty scored on 57 minutes 15 seconds, followed by the 2nd on 59
minutes 10 seconds, whilst the 3rd was scored on exactly 60 minutes) ....
and Tommy Johnson
who scored in both of Notts' successful Wembley play off finals on 27th
May 1990 and 2nd June 1991, Johnson
netted twice in the latter to become the hero of a double promotion to
the top flight.
At Meadow Lane, 47,310 saw Notts lose 1-0 to York City in an FA Cup Quarter Final on 12th March 1955.
The highest league crowd at the Lane was 46,000 for the visit of Nottingham Forest on April 22nd 1950 - Jackie Sewell and Tommy Lawton were the scorers in a 2-0 win for Notts that secured promotion to the 2nd tier.
Since the re-building of Meadow Lane was completed in the summer of 1994, the best attendance is 17,615 for the visit of Coventry City in the 4th tier play-offs on 18th May 2018.
The best ever home average attendance is 35,176 for the 3rd tier championship season of 1949/50.
The biggest crowd Notts have played in front of is 61,003 at Liverpool in an FA Cup 4th Round tie on 29th January 1949, County lost 1-0. The biggest crowd for a regular Notts league fixture is 49,604 at Everton on 20th October 1951, which County won 5-1. The 2nd tier Play Off final at Wembley on 2nd June 1991 was watched by 59,940.
The lowest Meadow Lane league crowd is 1,927 for Notts v Chesterfield in the 4th tier on Saturday 2nd April 1966 (this was due to heavy snow which caused many other games in the Football League to be called off that day)*.
In cup competitions at Meadow Lane just 900 witnessed a FL Trophy cup tie at home to Leyton Orient on 3rd September 2007.
The lowest average home attendance recorded since accurate figures were required from 1925 onwards is 4,258 for season 1996/97 (this being a calamitous relegation to the 4th tier in which Notts finished rock bottom and set a club record of 20 league games without a win).
The lowest away attendance in a league match (since accurate figures were recorded from 1925) is 1,215 away to Accrington Stanley on Tuesday 23rd February 2016, Stanley occupied a 4th tier play-off place at the time. The lowest FA Cup attendance for a Notts match since the 1880's is 1,026, also at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday 18th November 2014 (Scotland v England was broadcast live on ITV that same night).
*An all-time low attendance for any normal scheduled League match at Trent Bridge was recorded as 200-300 for Notts County v. Crewe Alexandra in the 2nd tier on 17th February 1894, this being the only time a Trent Bridge fixture was estimated to have been watched by less than 1,000 (a typical Saturday attendance that season was watched by 5,000-6,000), such a pitiful turn out was due to extremely bad weather (It snowed heavily that weekend and the River Trent rose by 5 feet). Bad weather would also account for the low turn out for the top flight fixture v Preston NE on Wednesday 27th March 1901 which was estimated at 1,500.
Further details of Notts' attendance records can
be found here.
