Stadium Rodney Parade
Time at Club:
Newport County appointed Graham Westley as their manager in October 2016, with the former Peterborough boss replacing the sacked Warren Feeney in the dugout. Feeney was sacked following a poor start to the season, and it's now up to Westley to pick up the pieces and change the club's fortunes.
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Newport County collect wins versus Notts County, Carlisle United, AFC Wimbledon and Accrington Stanley while suffering adverse results at Stevenage, Blackpool and Wycombe Wanderers. Draws against Plymouth Argyle, Alfreton Town and Alfreton Town has seen them show mid-table form at best.
