The Exiles score two goals in either half to win in pre-season friendly out in Poland.

County made the short trip from their base in Lubin to take on Polish outfit KS Polkowice, in the first of two fixtures that the squad will play in the pre-season training camp in Poland.

County were able to take an early lead when Sean Rigg managed to play a through ball into Trialist B, who was able to finish and put the Exiles ahead.

After the gaining the lead County enjoyed the vast amount of possession as KS Polkowice looked to force chances on the break.

Just before the break, the Exiles had a goal disallowed when a Sean Rigg effort was ruled out by the referee after he deemed that there was a foul in the build-up to the goal.

At half-time Manager Warren Feeney made four changes, as Jazzi Barnum-Bobb, Sean Rigg, Mark Randall and Jamie Turley were replaced by Tom Meechan, Scot Bennett, Joss Labadie and Darren Jones.

The second-half didn't offer a lot of chances, as County enjoyed controlling possession and limiting the opposition to a handful of chances from set pieces.

As the game neared its closing stages, striker Tom Meechan was able to control a cross and found space inside the area to hit a powerful effort into the bottom right corner to double the Exiles' lead and bag his first goal in County colours.

FULL TIME: KS Polkowice 0 - 2 Newport County AFC
