Newport County New Boy Corey Signs Up For Exiles

Newport County have signed striker Corey Whiteley on a two-year contract. It is his first big break at Football League level.

“I can’t wait to get the ball rolling,” said Whiteley. “I like to get forward, I can play on the left, the right or in behind the strikers. I’m buzzing, I am really looking forward to getting started.

“I can’t wait to meet up with the boys, get to know them and start work.”

Whiteley is the ninth player to sign a new two-year contract with Newport this summer.

Newport manager Michael Flynn said: “Corey is an exciting player. He is a player with lots of pace and can also play in a number of different attacking positions.

“He has taken a pay cut to sign and play for this football club which already shows me his desire to play well for Newport County AFC. I can’t wait to see him in action.”
