Welcome to Rodney Parade Ryan Bird!

Newport County AFC are pleased to announce the signing of Ryan Bird on a permanent deal.

The twenty-nine year old striker joins the Exiles in time for Saturday’s Sky Bet League two encounter with Hartlepool United at Rodney Parade. 

Ryan began his footballing career at non-league Burnham but an excellent goal scoring record saw him secure a move to Portsmouth in 2013.  He spent time at Havant & Waterlooville, Cambridge United, Hartlepool United, Yeovil Town, and finally Eastleigh before moving to South Wales.

Graham Westley had this to say about his new signing: “Ryan has a strong track record in situations like ours and in our league.  He is both a target man and an able runner, essential ingredients on our pitch.  He provides a perfect platform, especially at home, where his presence will help us to build our attacking game in our opponents’ defensive third.”
