With an unlikely goal-scorer still trying to put his 89th minute winner into words and several thousand-people alternating between chants of “we are staying up” and humming “The Great Escape”, the Newport County AFC’s annual awards were presented in the middle of the pitch following a dramatic match which saw The Exiles secure their EFL position.
