Robins’ Ryan Returns Home To Newport For Clash

Welshman Ryan Broom returns home this evening when he plays for Cheltenham Town against home city club Newport County at Rodney Parade (7.45pm).

The former Bristol Rovers player says: “I made my Football League debut at their ground.

“I was born in Newport, but live outside in Blackwood. Initially, I joined a development centre in Newport and that was run by Bristol Rovers. 

“At the age of 13 they invited me to join their academy. When I made my first team debut for Rovers we won against Newport County away and that was a good feeling.”

The visiting Robins also include former Cameron Pring, a 21-year-old Bristol City defender who has had loan spells with Merthyr Town, Newport County and now home town club Cheltenham.

Newport should welcome loan signing Ben Kennedy back after injury, but Matty Dolan, Andrew Crofts and Fraser Franks are still ruled out.

County will hope it’s third time lucky on Friday when they host Cheltenham. The Exiles have already suffered defeat against the Robins twice this season, in league and trophy.
