The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

ROOKIE boss Jamie Fullar­ton is con­vinced he can win over the Notts County fans af­ter as­sum­ing his first man­age­rial post this week.

The Mag­pies dis­missed Ri­cardo Moniz last month and this week Fullar­ton signed a three-and-a-half year deal to re­place him. The 41-yearold’s ap­point­ment has di­vided opin­ion among fans, with some ex­press­ing con­cern about his in­ex­pe­ri­ence.

“In this game, the thing that al­ters opin­ion is re­sults and per­for­mances,” said Fullar­ton, who has held coach­ing roles at Bris­tol Rovers and Bolton Wan­der­ers.

“I can’t prove my­self un­til we have the op­por­tu­nity to win games and play in a man­ner that peo­ple can re­late to.

“It’s im­por­tant to be able to hit the ground run­ning for the club, be­cause that’s the aim. Who do we work for? What do we want? It’s the same goal as ev­ery­one here, we want suc­cess and that’s what I feel and be­lieve we have to do in the short term.

“What can I guar­an­tee? A pas­sion, an en­thu­si­asm and de­sire. I’m re­lent­less to be suc­cess­ful.”
