Profile

Newport County hare managed by Michael Flynn who was appointed as the club's permanent manager after miraculously saving the club from relegation out of the Football League. Flynn was handed the caretaker position in March 2017 following the departure of Graham Westley and went on to preserve the club's League Two status on the final day of the season.

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.

Unbeaten in their recent fixtures but failing to convert draws into wins, Newport County are enjoying a good run. Wins against Shrewsbury Town, Oldham Athletic, Lincoln City & Bury have been slightly tempered by a number of draws with Al Ahly Cairo, Tranmere Rovers, Mansfield Town, Mansfield Town, Morecambe & Macclesfield Town, but they still take a lot of credit for them unbeaten run!
