Newport County AFC are pleased to announce that striker Conor Wilkinson has extended his loan deal at the Club for a further month.

The forward on loan from Bolton Wanderers scored on his debut for the Exiles against Dagenham & Redbridge and has made four appearances during his initial month long loan.


Manager Warren Feeney was pleased to have the loan deal for Conor extended, after being impressed with Conor’s performances so far.


“He is a player that certainly has ability, and causes problems for defenders.”


“Conor has struck up a good partnership with Scott Boden up front and he is an intelligent player.”


“He has taken on board little pieces of advice that the staff have given him and I think he gives us another option going forward and I’m delighted with the performances that he has produced so far.”


“I’m pleased that we have managed to arrange a deal to extend the loan and have to say thank you to Bolton Wanderers, for allowing us to keep Conor for another month.”


The extended loan deal will run up to and including our Sky Bet League Two fixture against local rivals Bristol Rovers.
