Time at Club:





Newport County have sacked Graham Westley and replaced him with Michael Flynn until the end of the season. Westley was only appointed in October 2016, with the former Peterborough boss replacing Warren Feeney, but five months later he's been hurled out of the exit door.

Newport won the Welsh Cup back in 1980, and went on to impressively reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup Winner's Cup. However, the end of the 80s was a disaster, with the club suffering relegation from the Football League (1988), before subsequently going out of business a year later. The club reformed shortly after but were forced to begin life down in the Hellenic League, which was four divisions below the Football League.

The Exiles have enjoyed a successful time of late, during which they have won promotion twice in the last four years, from Conference South up to League Two. The Welsh side will now be looking to build on their impressive showing back in the Football League, which saw them secure a 14th place finish in 2014/15, but just avoided the drop last term.

Recent Form


Newport County have reaped 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Accrington Stanley, Yeovil Town, Exeter City, Crawley Town, Morecambe and Crewe Alexandra. 1 draws against Luton Town and defeats to Plymouth Argyle, Portsmouth and Blackpool has seen them score 11 at an average of 1.1 goals per game while shipping 13.
