NEWS: Hatswell Leaves County

3 June 2015

Newport County AFC can confirm that former player and assistant manager Wayne Hatswell will leave Newport.

Hatswell's relationship with County first started at the end of 2010 when he arrived as a player-coach, with the former Cambridge United man going on to make over 20 appearances for The Exiles.

He left County at the end of the 2012 season, moving to Brackley Town where he made a handful of appearances. He then took up his first managerial role with Stamford, whom he guided to a play off final victory at the end of the 2012/13 season.

Two weeks after securing promotion Hatswell was snapped up by then Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh as first team coach at Newport. Upon Justin's departure in early 2015, Hatswell stepped up to assistant manager at Rodney Parade as Jimmy Dack's number two.

Speaking to the Official Newport County Website Hatswell thanked the players, staff and fans at County. "I've had some tremendous times at Newport and I've worked with some great people.

"I'd like to thank the board and County fans for their constant support during my time at Newport."

"All good things have to come to an end, and I am excited for what the future holds for me personally. I also wish Terry and his new squad well for the future and hope they have a successful season."

County director Howard Greenhaf added "Wayne has served the club extremely well over the years, both as player, coach and more recently as assistant manager. He has been a dependable part of the County backroom staff and we thank him for his services. 

"I am sure County fans will join me in wishing him well for the future."
