Evening Post, 01 November 2005
Notts County have joined the race to become "top dog" among the region's football clubs.

The Magpies have teamed up with Nottingham Greyhound Track to bring a unique and exciting night of greyhound racing to fans with the launch of the Greyhound Football League on Monday, November 7.

Derby County, Leicester City, Mansfield Town and Burton Albion will all be there challenging the Magpies and during the five middle races of the evening their team of greyhounds will compete for the coveted title of Greyhound Football League Champions.

A draw will be made prior to the night to decide which trap each club will race out of.

That will be the club's trap for the evening and all the greyhounds will be led to the traps in their club's colours.

The position the dog finishes translates to points on the league table - seven points for a win and one for last place.

As a bonus, each club will be given one wildcard dog in one of the races offering the opportunity to gain extra points.

The club that finishes with the highest points total will be crowned GFL Champions.

Rachel Cordon, director of Nottingham Greyhound Track said: "The Greyhound Football League is a unique evening developed with football fans in mind.

"It provides the perfect opportunity to compete against your local rivals on an equal footing.

"We are pleased to welcome Derby County into the league and we look forward to giving the fans a night to remember."
