Newport County And Other Clubs Told: Sort Yourselves Out
Newport County and other struggling clubs in Leagues One and Two have been told that football must solve their financial crisis – not the government.

Calls have been made for a state-backed plan to help English Football League clubs avoid insolvency in the current coronavirus pandemic.

Two Apple Trees And One Daughter . . . Aled Davies Finds Balance In The Breaking Of His Tokyo 2020 Dream
This year should have been the time Aled Davies secured his status as one of the world’s greatest Paralympians.

Aled Davies insists fatherhood and the joy of seeing his daughter learn to walk will always shine far brighter than any gold medal. The multiple medalist and world champion should be spending this summer preparing for more glory at the Paralympics in Tokyo.

Mike Flynn Pays Tribute To Lennie Lawrence As Veteran Coach Leaves Newport County
Lennie Lawrence will remain a “very valued friend” to Newport County manager Mike Flynn after the club confirmed their assistant was leaving to join Stevenage.

But the veteran coach has remained based in the south-east of England and has now chosen to join Stevenage as No.2 to manager Alex Revell – with his start date likely to be the beginning of the 2020-21 season.
