Kewell Notts County debut ends in disaster

Notts County boss Harry Kewell endured a disastrous debut on Saturday.

Former Leeds and Liverpool star Kewell traded in Crawley Town for the Magpies in midweek, replacing Kevin Nolan after his Meadow Lane exit.

But Kewell's arrival has done little to stop their early season slump, as they were thrashed in the south west, going down 5-1 at Exeter City.

County have taken only one point this season - in a 0-0 draw with Colchester on the opening day - despite being among the favourites for promotion during the summer.

Kewell was also sent off for telling the referee “well done".

On his red card, Kewell said: “I just said 'well done' to the referee. I said you can see ones (fouls) in the far corner, but you can't see ones right in front of you."
