During the 1994–95 English football season, Notts County F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

In the early stages of the 1994–95 season, Walker was surprisingly sacked in September and this triggered a dramatic decline in the club's fortunes throughout the league campaign. Even though Notts County won the Anglo-Italian Cup at Wembley in March 1995, they ended the season relegated to Division Two.
